World Series of Fighting 10 took place this past Saturday night in Las Vegas and was headlined by David Branch winning the inaugural middleweight title with a submission victory over Jesse Taylor in the first round.
According to Nielsen sources, the preliminary overnight ratings for the World Series of Fighting 10 event on NBCSN reached 365,000 total viewers and this is the largest audience for a World Series of Fighting card.
The previous high in terms of television viewership was World Series of Fighting 4 (264,000) last Summer, which was headlined by Tyrone Spong defeating Angel DeAnda by decision.
Saturday night’s preliminary viewership number is up 50 percent from World Series of Fighting 9 in March and this is the third straight event that has shown improvements in the television viewership. With Saturday night’s number, the overall average viewership for the World Series of Fighting is 217,000 and the 2014 average for the promotion is 273,000.
This is a great sign for the promotion as they are less than two weeks away from their debut on NBC. That fight card will air in the afternoon (4p-6p ET) and will be headlined by Justin Gaethje making his first lightweight title defense as he is challenged by Nick Newell.
