MMA has a new most-watched fight in U.S. television history.

This past weekend's UFC on FOX headliner between Cain Velasquez and new champ Junior Dos Santos peaked with a solid 8.8 million viewers on the FOX network, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with industry sources.

Within three minutes of the bout's conclusion, the audience dwindled to 5.9 million viewers. Overall, the event averaged 5.7 million viewers.

UFC on FOX took place this past Saturday, Nov. 12, at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. While the UFC's landmark seven-year deal with FOX doesn't begin officially until 2012, the Nov. 12 event served as a "teaser" show. Only the main event aired on the one-hour FOX broadcast, and the entire undercard streamed on Facebook and FOXSports.com.

I guess the reports of the UFC on Fox failing to top the EliteXC on CBS ratings were early. Last time I checked, if you have a higher number of average viewers, and higher peak ratings.... Well, you get the idea.

Let's hope they can get numbers like that back for the first UFC on FX!!! It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia + UFC= Best channel ever.

I've gotta spread the love but It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is awesome. Wilfred is pretty jokes as well. And I can't forget Louie. All and all, a great channel.

True! Even if the UFC had only moved to FX, I would have been stoked. It really is an infinitely better channel than Spike.

Was a little worried about the numbers that were being reported early. This is much better.
