UFC Fight Night 36 does 1.4 million viewers

UFC Fight Night 36 went down this past weekend with the main event battle between Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi. After a tough 5 round battle, the judges gave Machida the unanimous decision victory as he inched closer to a UFC Middleweight title shot.

According to multiple sources, UFC Fight Night 36 drew an average of 1.4 million viewers. This is is the second highest rating for a Fight Night on Fox Sports 1 overall. The highest rating still belongs to UFC Fight Night 26, which aired on the first day of the network.

With the show being later than most pay per views on the east coast, these are some very promising numbers. Couple that with the fact that the prelims were absolutely dreadful, and the UFC somehow pulled off it’s second most watched Fight Night on Fox Sports 1.
