MMA

The second UFC pay-per-view during the coronavirus era took place this past Saturday Night with UFC 250, which was headlined by two division UFC champion Amanda Nunes defeating Felicia Spencer in the main event.

A seven fight preliminary card aired live on ESPN before the pay-per-view, with Alex Caceres defeating Chase Hooper in the featured spot, brought in an average of 775,000 viewers according to MMA Fighting. Those prelims brought on a rating of .29, which was second place for ratings on Saturday Night, but the overall number was the second lowest for UFC pay-per-view preliminary cards in 2020. The only show to beat the UFC 250 preliminary card ratings was a CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall event.
