Can't be too surprised. No offense to Cote or Noke, but neither of them having selling capability. Cote is about as exciting as watching paint dry, Noke is not popular at all, he's a bit unknown unless you really follow mma, you probably don't know either of the coaches. For me, I hate that they don't take the top talent anymore, some of the people that go on this show are an embarrassment like Junie or Julian, those are suppose to be the professional athletes in our sport of MMA, not only are they bad portrayals of the sport, they're simply not good fighters period. Julian is one of those guys I look at and confidently say, I could beat that guy. But these guys get added to the house to help ratings, or draw rating for their characters. Not surprised anymore, they picked coaches who no one knows as a casual fan, and they pick b-level fighters that hopefully turn into a-level talent in the UFC.

Are those figures for the US only? I hate to be captain obvious but Tuf nations is Australia v Canada. Meaning both these nations would have a higher viewers/interest.

Wonder what the figures for aus and canada are?

Do they even use half their roster as regularly as they should? It doesn't seem like it.

There should be stacked cards and good cards only with UFC's fighter roster.

They are failing on the business side.

Almost nobody knew who Rockhold or Philippou are. MMA fans can go "cool, a match between two top ten guys" but those names mean nothing to the average viewer. I wouldn't have expected it to do well.

I agree it was a good night of fights, I enjoyed it. Hell of a performance by Luke.

How was that card watered down?

When there were only 5 to 10 events a year, I would watch every MMA fight I possibly could. Now that there's so much on TV, I can only stomach fights with fighters that I'm interested in.

Didn't watch, I was too busy watching the good NBA games that were on that day.
