M-1 Global, Strikeforce: Over 25 Million Watched Fedor vs. Rogers

M-1 Global and Strikeforce is boasting that over 25 million viewers from around the world watched Fedor Emelianenko knock out Brett Rogers on Nov. 7 in Hoffman Estates, Ill.

Mostly seen through CBS (5.46 million viewers) and Russia's Channel 1 (16 million viewers), the main event was also televised in some capacity in China, Latin America, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Ukraine, Finland, Africa, Turkey, Israel, Indonesia, Bulgaria, Romania and Malta, according to the promotion.

M-1 Global said it believes with the help of their numerous television agreements, Fedor vs. Rogers "delivered worldwide more than any other MMA show in the history of the sport."

"We are extremely happy with the preliminary broadcast reports," M-1 Global CEO Joost Raimond said in a prepared statement. "The demographics of these numbers were very promising as our network broadcasting partners in the U.S., Russia, and Korea reach an enormous audience alone."
