Rating For Last Night’s UFC Debut Event on FOX

Nick Paglino

TVByTheNumbers.com is reporting that last night's UFC debut on FOX, which featured Junior Dos Santos defeating Cain Velasquez to become the new UFC Champion, drew a 2.4 rating and took in 4.64 million viewers.

The final number is expected to be adjusted, and will likely be a bit higher, due to coast-to-coast live viewing. The show went up against stiff competition and came in behind the GOP debate and the Oregon-Stanford college football game. It's being said that UFC was hoping to take in 3 million viewers, so they are likely happy with this number.
