It was a train wreck of a first FOX show, and I think it turned a lot of potential new viewers off.

40 minutes of hype and then 60 seconds of fight, with the guy they were claiming to be the perfect fighter getting knocked out in one minute. Then Dana gets on afterwards and starts trashing his new champion because he "gasses out all the time", and trashes Cain as well. Just an embarrassment of a night for the UFC.

And the co main was a 15 minute barn burner... They didn't show it rofl

It turned off a lot of casuals with the damn I could pay $50 for a sixty second fight.

Cain vs JDS II did almost 600,000 buys, so apparently it didn't turn too many people off.

Well the 2nd match had the was it a fluke or is Cain V back sort of hype. Once people realised the first one was a fluke the numbers for Cain/JDS 3 were 330k.

So I guess once they paid $50 for Cain to pummel JDS for 5 rounds they thought who would want to se that again.
