The Nielsen ratings are in for the UFC 224 prelims shown on FX and they are not good.  Despite the fact that FX is broadcasted in more homes than FS1, the show did not see a boost in viewership and instead drew an average of only 574,000 viewers making it the lowest rated prelim card on PPV since Amanda Nunes’s last performance at UFC 215.

The broadcast drew a dismal 0.21 in the A18-49 and did only slightly better in the M18-49 demo drawing 0.29 By comparison, the last time the UFC prelims were shown on FX the telecast averaged almost an additional 100,00 viewers.  The peak of the telecast came when Cezar Ferreira was able to submit Karl Roberson.

While PPV numbers are not announced, rumors circulating from TerezOwens who broke the ESPN deal with the UFC are stating that the event is speculated to only have sold around 85,000 buys making it the least bought PPV for the company in the past 10 years. While those numbers are never made public, the announced attendance of UFC 224 was only 10,696 which makes it the lowest attended PPV of 2018 by a live audience so far.
