#Rampage4Real, UFC165 Reloaded and other UFC on FS1/FS2 Ratings Review

Over the past week it has been hard to not find the UFC and Bellator on both Spike TV and Fox Sports 1.Rampage4Real

This past Thursday SpikeTV featured the premiere of #Rampage4Real which featured Rampage, being Rampage.

According to Nielsen, the shows total viewership came in around 449,0000, marking a great start to what looks to be an interesting show leading up to the PPV.

The same night, the UFC found itself on Fox Sports 1 again for a little surprise replay of UFC 165, which featured the epic Jon Jones versus Alexander Gustafsson light heavyweight championship contest.

According to the same sources, the total viewership for the show came in around 404,000, falling in line with the majority of College Football programming on Fox Sports 1.

When it came to other UFC programming on Fox Sports 1 last week, the UFC once again had six programs out of the top-15 on Fox Sports 1 including two Ultimate Fighter’s (725k, 168k), the live UFC Fight Night (638k), UFC Ultimate 100 Knockouts (227k) and the UFC Fight Night prelims (220k).

A couple of shows that drew really poorly on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2 was the second and third episodes of UFC Primetime: Velasquez vs. dos Santos III on FS1, which drew 85k, 75k, 67k and 64k (first-run and replays), and the live UFC weigh-in for the Fight Night card last week on FS2 drew a meager 60k viewing audience.

Safe to say, not the greatest week overall for MMA viewership, but make no mistake about it, both Bellator and the UFC are all over the television and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
