The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hosted another exciting night of fights over the weekend. However, it would appear that the FS1 featured fight card failed to draw high ratings numbers. UFC Lincoln delivered the lowest television ratings in UFC history for a Saturday night fight card on FOX Sports 1.
UFC Fight Night 135 took place on Saturday, Aug. 25. The event was featured within the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska and offered a series of interesting match ups.
Headlining the card, UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje faced off against James Vick in what would become a swift knockout victory for Gaethje. As reported by MMA Fighting, the event has since hit a new low for the promotion concerning ratings performances.
Having reached 596,000 views for the main card, UFC Fight Night 135 has achieved the lowest ratings ever for a Saturday night UFC card broadcast on FS1. Meanwhile, YouTube sensations Logan Paul and KSI hosted a boxing match in Manchester, England that sold an estimated 784,000 pay-per-views over YouTube on the same day.
