Poll Results: Did The UFC Hit A Home Run With Latest Show On FOX?
In our latest polling here at BJPENN.COM we asked our readers whether or not you thought last weekend’s UFC event on FOX was a success.
Many analysts from the sports journalism world gave the event a poor rating, but taking to the fans to get their reaction is more important than some writer sitting at a desk.
After all the votes were tabulated here it appears as if the majority of fans believe that the UFC fell short in last weekend’s main card.
UFC on FOX 2 took place this past Saturday from the sold-out United Center in Chicago.
In the main event, Phil Davis squared off with Rashad Evans for the number one contender seat in the UFC’s light-heavyweight division ruled over by Jon Jones and Evans took the win. The co-feature of the evening was a middleweight number one contender bout between Michael Bisping and Chael Sonnen and Sonnen took the victory. The televised main card aired for free on FOX and the preliminary portion was delegated to FUEL TV.
All three main card bouts that aired on FOX went to decision and apparently that wasn’t enough to please fans.
After all is said and done, 72.7% of the votes cast this week stated “No, the fights could have been better for the Network TV audience.
The other 27.3% of you chose “Yes, the three fights featured did the job.”
With UFC on FOX 3 in the works for May and with a Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller headliner, the UFC apparently feels the same way and is making steps to correct their errors in matchmaking for FOX.
