Its what they should have been doing in the first place if the plan was to make the UFC more mainstream. I think they botched that opportunity.

They used to do double those numbers on Spike for prelims and Fight Night cards on a regular basis. These were the highest TV ratings of the year, and we're in July.

It may not be dying, but it's sure not what it used to be.

And yet shertards still struggle to understand why the UFC would put any name fighter on a prelim and act like it is some insult or demotion every time it happens.

ESPN got like 950k for that HW title fight. Showtime hasn't had one this year. HBO gets 1m on a regular.

Fight Night went on WAY longer than I expected, I thought the main even was much earlier.

But I wasn't going anywhere until Frankie dispensed the scheduled beating.

UFC is dying and anything under 170 doesn't draw.
