Report: UFC on FOX 30 Delivers Lowest Ratings in Series History
By FCF Staff
Although UFC on FOX 30 appeared to be highly anticipated throughout the MMA world, it’s being reported that Saturday’s card was the least watched event of the series.
The Calgary event featured a rematch between lightweight contenders Dustin Poirier and Eddie Alvarez, as well as the legendary Jose Aldo facing Jeremy Stephens. In addition, former strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk took on Tecia Torres.
Despite the impressive line-up, however, MMA Fighting is reporting that according to the early numbers, UFC on FOX 30 only drew 1,461,000 viewers. That would make it the lowest ranked card of the series.
UFC on FOX 27 in January, which was headlined by “Jacare” Souza versus Derek Brunson, held the previous record for the lowest ratings at 1,593,000.
UFC on FOX 30 did reportedly lead the way in terms of the 18-49 demographic, via an 0.6 rating.
