    NFL Conference Championship Sunday.. that is.

    I'm assuming UFC believes the games will be draw attention to the event?

    This will be great for ratings if the game ends on schedule. They'll advertise to like whatever milllions of people that it is on that day right after the game.

    FS1 will still make it worse though. Plus if Pats get there which is very likely then I'd imagine interest locally will dwindle.

    Yes, it's ridiculous. Hopefully a year until next time.

    60 mill watched NFC title game on FOx last year. UFC has been pushing this McGregor fight on FS1/Fox during NFL games alot. They will push the Gus/Rumble FOx card and McGregor card during the NFC title game in front of 60 mill fans saying when both games are done tune in to FS1 at 10pm.

    The ratings will tell if it worked or not.

    Another reason is that Monday is MLK day so most people will be off work.school and won't mind staying up to watch the fights
