The Ultimate Fighting Champships’ 2015 is off to a good start.
As we previously noted in our ‘UFC Fight Night Boston’ ratings report, Conor McGregor cemented himself as one of the sport’s biggest draws, breaking every viewing record on FOX Sports 1, last week.
Fast forward another 6 days and Saturday’s UFC on FOX 14 event also took home the best ratings for a UFC on FOX card in over two years.
All signs point to a resurgent UFC in 2015.
Here’s what TVByTheNumbers.com is reporting on Saturday’s standings:
