The UFC 145 preliminary bouts televised on FX drew TV ratings of 1.6 million viewers on average over the course of the four-bout, two-hour telecast.
Travis Browne’s submission of UFC newcomer Chad Griggs headlined the action on FX.
The UFC got off to a slow start on FX with the UFC 142 Prelims in January pulling in an audience of just 880,000. Each successive event has shown a slight improvement, with the promotion now averaging 1.345 million viewers per event.
Those ratings are right in line with the two UFC main cards on FX, which pulled in 1.3 million viewers for UFC on FX 1 and 1.4 million for UFC on FX 2.
