    The Fight Night 59 numbers were amazing because they had Conor and because of the promotion it was able to receive on Fox during huge NFL games. Obviously, neither of those things is going to be available with regularity.

    FS1 is a shitty network. There just aren't a lot of people watching that network, so advertising shows with commercials like they would on Spike does nothing.

    People didn't think they were watching more NFL on FS1, Fox just advertised that Conor McGregor was fighting and people bought in.

    Without promotion, no one is ever going to watch UFC on FS1 with regularity. How do you think they make it work? It's obviously possible.

    Because that way, everyone thinks they're watching football despite them advertising a fight.

    McGregor and Bendo are proven Fox draws. Throw Mighty Mouse or that other girl champ on the card and bam! You've got three solid fights. Now, if only they could get the kind of advertising they got during the AFC championship game

    17 million watched football. About 15% turned over to the UFC. The organization has put on better cards with plenty of hype. Yeah, Connor got some of that "great white hope" going on, but a big part of the UFC success for this show was timing.

    Sign Bork Lazerner again and get him in football gear on an NFL team vs. Fedor in football gear on another team, put 'em in a game live on FS1 and after the ball is hiked, have em throw off their gear and start fighting each other in the middle of the field while the ball is in play.

    Guaranteed ratings.

    Well you oversell a wannabe and then come up with excuses when he loses to the champ.

    Most of his fights should be scored as draws.

    I said Fox draw. Considering they had him against both Diaz and Melendez as title fights on Fox and against Thomson, headlined FS1 against Khabilov and RDA and featured as the co-main against Cerrone on FS1. All those did solid numbers.


    Badumtsh.
    1: 49-46 Bendo / 2: 48-47 Frankie
