    Well, I was wrong
    I completely expected it to be the worst Fox card ever

    Still not close to good, but better than I expected

    I thought so going.
    Between Olympics & other competition, I expected record lows.

    It was strange that they had three Fox cards in consecutive months, usually they space them out better. I mean yes, they have a December Fox card and a January Fox card traditionally, but not a December, January, and February run. Wondering if they're burning through the Fox cards early this year so they can give all the numbers to prospective buyers.

    why did you expect lower? Aren't you always defending the health of UFC's finances?

    also lol@competition from Olympics. NBC's ratings have cratered from team USA underperforming every event.

    How good you think the Gaethje vs Poirier card does next month that card is loaded with some fun fights it should be called the “Just Bleed” card

    I think it helped that the Olympics were Figure Skating and Women's Curling. I don't think there's a lot of overlap with MMA fans on those 2.

    It's a good just bleed card, but I doubt the casuals know these names any more than they did Fox 28's names.

    Those are shit ratings considering the fight card was on Fox Network a channel everyone in America gets for "FREE". Bellator 149 got 1,964,000 rating on a paid cable tv channel. If Bellator 149 was on "FREE" Fox Network they would've tripled that number.

    WTF does one have to do with the other?
    Ratings, interest & PPV are down.
    Just because I know UFC is an ATM right now doesn't negate that

    Dunno
    I would have never of thought Nelson/Mitrone would bomb so badly either & this would do OK

    But no mistake about it, this is not a good number. Just not a disaster
