By FCF Staff
Last weekend’s UFC Fight Night 75 card didn’t draw big ratings for the UFC and FOX Sports 1, but the September 26th card didn’t do so bad, all things considered.
The event took place in Saitama, Japan, and featured Josh Barnett taking on fellow heavyweight contender Roy Nelson in the main event. According to a follow up report from MMA Fighting, the event averaged 841,000 viewers, which is slightly lower than what Fight Night cards have been averaging.
According to the report, if you remove the card that featured Conor McGregor stopping Dennis Siver in January, prime time, Fight Night cards have been averaging 882,000 viewers. UFC FN 75 also had to compete with college football and boxing heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder defending his title versus Johann Duhaupas.
In the UFC FN 75 headliner, Barnett worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Roy Nelson.
