This past Saturday Night was the UFC’s final event on Fox and that came in the form of UFC On Fox 31, which was headlined by a rematch between Al Iaquinta and Kevin Lee.
The overnight ratings for the show have been obtained by MMA Fighting and the event drew an average of 2,153,000 viewers. The show also did a big rating in the 18-49 demographic, bringing in a 0.7, which was the highest rating for any network on Saturday Night.
It should be noted that the overnight ratings will not be the final ratings, as there are still other things to measure for the final numbers, such as DVR numbers and the full ratings for each time zone in the United States.
Iaquinta would defeat Lee by decision in the main event, while other fights on the card saw Edson Barboza defeat Dan Hooker, Rob Font defeat Sergio Pettis and Charles Oliveira defeat Jim Miller.
There was also a six fight preliminary card that aired live on Fox Sports 1 with Zak Ottow and Dwight Grant in the featured spot, but the ratings have yet to be released for that portion of the card. The final UFC event on any Fox network is scheduled for December 29, as the UFC 232 preliminary card will air on Fox Sports 1.
