    Amazingly low. Not good to leverage Fox deal

    Honestly I think it's just how many big fights there were this year.

    Most casuals watch a few fights a year.. in a year where may/mac happened, GSP/Bisping happened etc i dont think most people give a fuck about RDA/Lawler

    ...What big fights?

    Outside of Jones/DC and GSP/Bisping the UFC didn’t have any big fights.

    I'm talking about Perry/Ponz and Lawler/RDA not living up to its potential

    They need to air more fights on Christmas eve in States lol. Reruns of Brown/Cerrone and Choi/Cub did some amazing numbers last year.

    I thought Perry/Ponz was good and I enjoyed at least the first two rounds of Lawler/RDA...

    This is why the UFC messed up. They didn’t put in a fight that casual droolers care about. They fucked up by making Holm vs Cyborg the PPV main event. They should have had it main event this fight night. And had a real main event for the PPV.

    That still doesn’t have anything to do with the fights having a low amount of viewers. Nobody knew going in that “they would not live up to their potential” (both were really good fights, so idk what you are talking about)

    Really I was dissapointed with the results having picked Perry and Lawler to win but they both were exciting to watch. I am sure any casual fan or somone scrolling throw the channels who stopped and watched loved both fights

    To be fair Cyborg-Holm is headlining the nye card because no one else was available and they didn't want to pay Diaz 15 million dollars.

    Jones/DC, GSP/Bisping and May/Mac were gigantic fights and they were all this year. May/mac might not be MMA but it was casual MMA fans that went crazy for it.

    The lack of KOs obviously. Both the Perry and Lawler fights didn't really live up to the hype IMO.

    I dunno that 23 second combo by RDA and the chin of Perry excited me as a viewer.
