UFC on FX 8 TV Ratings Return to Normal Following Record-Setting January Event

The TV ratings for Saturday’s UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs. Rockhold came back down to earth following January’s record-setting UFC on FX 7.

UFC on FX 7 drew an average of 1.9 million viewers, the most of any UFC event on the FX network. UFC on FX 8, meanwhile, dropped down to 1.3 million viewers, which matches the average for live UFC events on FX.

Both events featured former UFC light heavyweight champion and Brazilian native Vitor Belfort in the main event.

Belfort knocked out Michael Bisping at UFC on FX 7, and did the same to former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold on Saturday night.

The UFC on FX 8 preliminary bouts on Fuel TV drew slightly better than the average of 132,000, drawing 156,000 viewers for the three-hour telecast on the action sports network.
