Just taking the UK as an example;
there are roughly 12 Premier league games every week. Each stadium holds between 30,000 - 75,000. they get full, for every game, every week and are watched by millions upon millions of people around the country... EVERY WEEK! That is wtithout even going into the thousands and thousands of supporters that go to lower league games, some of which have massive 30,000+ stadiums.
UFC struggles to fill a 6,000 seater arena here once or twice a year.
I'd go so far as to say 99.9% of people living in the UK have heard of football. I dare say less than 25% have heard of MMA
