Through four events, UFC on Fox has average 1.28 million viewers per episode, while UFC on FX 4 pulled in 1.3 million viewers.
UFC on FX 4: Maynard vs. Guida featured the lightweight battle between contenders Gray Maynard and Clay Guida; a fight that he’s received a lot of criticism, particularly for Guida’s strategy.
