By FCF Staff
Although the TUF Brazil III Finale didn’t draw a considerable audience in the United States, last Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 42 reportedly pulled in over one million viewers.
UFC FN 42 featured former lightweight champ Benson Henderson taking on Rustam Khabilov in the main event, and according to a report from MMA Fighting.com, the main card averaged 1,217,000 viewers. The card’s ratings are the third highest for a FOX Sports 1, UFC event to date.
Henderson won the main event via a fourth round, rear-naked-choke.
The TUF III Brazil Finale, which saw Stipe Miocic stop Fabio Maldonado, averaged 609,000 viewers (in the U.S.).
UFC FN 42 was hosted by Albuquerque, New Mexico.
