UFC NEWS | UFC On FOX 2 | Preliminary Ratings Are In For Last Night’s UFC on FOX 2 Event

UFC on FOX 2 took place tonight 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.

The overnight ratings are now in for the UFC’s return trip to FOX TV and if our first attempt at trying to analyze these network ratings are an indicator than last night’s show was a moderate success.

Here is the report from TV By The Numbers:

FOX easily cruised to victory in adults 18-49 with two hours of UFC on FOX 2 with a fight card headlined by Evans vs. Davis. Again, these numbers are far more likely to be adjusted (and adjusted up) than normal due to the nature of live programming. But in the preliminary non time zone adjusted numbers the fight card averaged a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating between 8-10p and 4.37 million viewers.

The report shows a 4.37 million figure, but this same outlet reported a 2.5 million digit in their overnight ratings write up following UFC on Fox 1. Once all the viewers are tabulated it seems like this first estimate is drastically on the low side. UFC on FOX 1 ended up coming in in the 8-9 Million ranges and UFC on FOX 2 will likely see a drastic increase from these initial findings as well.

        are you high? what the fuck were you watching? cuz i saw bisping beat sonnens ass for two rounds then sonnen went right to his lay n pray bullshit, i think sonnen fans are as delusional as he is. sonnens a beast? what a fucking idiot

          dude i ment his physical attrubutes compared to bisping in this picture. and if u look it up, chael landed more strikes the first rounf, and got a takedown. BIsping held him against the fence in the second landed more strikes than chael. Chael took bispings back, worked for arm triangles, and punched him alot. so if you think Chael layed and prayed and bisping won two rounds, GO KILL YOURSELF! No way bisping won that fight. I honestly scored the second round even, but i won’t argue if someone says bisping won it. stop watching mma and getting on this site if you are just here to make stupid comments that make no sense.
