Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez combined at UFC on FOX to put on the most-watched fight in U.S. television history.

But UFC officials aren't done counting.

At Thursday's UFC 139 pre-event press conference, which took place at San Francisco's Fort Mason Center, UFC director of media relations Ant Evans said the company expects the final tally to reach more than 9 million viewers.

"We're consolidating numbers today, and we will have a full breakdown soon," Evans said. "The 8.8 million was the people who actually tuned into the actual fight. That doesn't include people who watched it on DVR, and it doesn't include about 400,000 who watched it in Spanish on FOX Deportes.

"This could go over 9 million."
