UFC 75 - 5million watched?

from UFC.com

"New York, NY – September 11, 2007 – The first ever UFC title fight on Spike TV drew a staggering 4.7 million viewers on Saturday, September 8 (9:00pm-12:11am) making it the most watched UFC event ever and the most watched mixed martial arts event ever in North America. The “UFC 75” telecast emanating from the O2 Arena in London, England peaked at 5.6 million for the bout between UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and PRIDE champ Dan Henderson. The fight card drew more Men 18-34 and Men 18-49 than anything else on television, broadcast or cable on September 8, including heavy sports competition from college football on ABC and ESPN, NASCAR on ABC, and the U.S. Open Women’s Final on CBS."

So which was it, did the event draw 4.7mil or 5.6mil? Nice numbers anyway!

Good thing they needed to build it better....

Anyways, I think ppvs still get that high view count. A million buys doesn't mean a million people watch it.

The first is the average # of viewers. The second is the peak # of viewers.

I wouldn't count that as sports competition as compared to MMA.

Jasvll is right, 4.7 is average for the whole event but the most people that were watching was 5.6 during the LHW title fight.

Um...

Like the quote said the avg. number of viewers was 4.7. During the Title match it spiked to 5.6 which makes sense more people were watching other shows then switched to see the most "important" fight of the night.

Wasn't to hard to understand, in my opinion.

The numbers are impressive, and even more so when you really think about it. I had 18 people at my house watching the entire event. My TV set only counts as 1. Consider all the people watching at bars, restaurants, etc.

The UFC is raking.
