The final ratings for Saturday's UFC on FOX 15 event are in. According to Sports TV Ratings, the fifteenth installment in the UFC on FOX series averaged 2.745 million viewers or the two-hour plus broadcast. Those figures are up slightly from the 2.43 million viewers the event pulled in overnight ratings.
Notably, the broadcast peaked during the main event, a middleweight battle between former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold. The broadcast reached its highest ratings from the 10 p.m. ET to 10:21 mark, reaching 3.325 million viewers during that block (the peak technically took place only from 10 p.m. ET to 10:15 p.m. ET, but specific ratings from that shortened frame aren't available). That figure represents a relative decline from UFC on FOX 14, where the broadcast peaked with 3.65 million viewers. That bout, however, took place during the NFL season, a time of the year that traditionally yields higher UFC ratings.
In specific demos, UFC on FOX 15 earned a 1.6 rating in males 18-49. The median age of the broadcast is 41.7. UFC on FOX 14, by contrast, earned a 1.8 in the aforementioned demographic.
In adults 18-49, the event drew a 1.1 rating.
UFC on FOX 15 took place at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.
