UFC and FX officials should be pleased with the reported viewership numbers floating around the TV industry in regards to last weekend’s UFC on Fx 8: Belfort vs. Rockhold event.
UFC on FX 8 took place at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil.
The event was capped off with a spectacular main event where, longtime UFC dominator, Vitor Belfort was able to finish the highly touted Luke Rockhold in the very first frame of action.
According to industry insiders, the UFC on FX 8 main-card broadcast drew in 1.3 million viewers. This number is down from the 1.9 million viewers UFC on FX 7 drew in January, but still marks an acceptable rating, for a card, that had few notable fighters booked.
