Report | 19 Million Brazilians Tuned In To Watch Anderson Silva Beat Chael Sonnen | UFC NEWS

Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen 2 brought the biggest numbers yet for a UFC pay-per-view airing in Brazil.

UFC 148 aired a 30-minute tape delay on Globo TV pulling in 19 million viewers.  A contractual agreement between Globo TV and the UFC caused the air delay.  The numbers reflect only the ratings of the tape delayed free broadcast shattering the record last month of 10 and 15 million viewers for UFC 147 which took place in Brazil.

President Dana White stated prior to the show that he expected UFC 148 to break the one million buys mark.  The UFC has not yet released the U.S. pay-per-view estimates.
