In the head-to-head battle Saturday night between Strikeforce and WEC, it looks like Strikeforce wins in ratings. SF Evolution drew a total of 341,000 viewers on Showtime, about average for the network and 11,000 more than WEC 45 did on Versus in the same timeslot.

With the Comcast/DirectTV grudge match, Versus loses 18 million viewers.

And even though they (WEC) have a deal with Dish Network, if you combined those figures that's still a 4+ million net loss in viewers. And don't forget Showtime's only in something like 13 million homes, so that's still almost 3% of them watching SF. They likely both hurt each other going head-to-head, and don't forget the number likely doesn't include the online PPV stream Showtime had.
