This past weekend's UFC 145 preliminary-card broadcast scored a record 1.6 million viewers on FX.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the ratings information with industry sources.

The April 21 broadcast, which preceded the night's pay-per-view main card, bested every UFC on FX main-card broadcast and PPV preliminary-card special since the UFC moved from Spike TV to the FOX family of channels earlier this year.

UFC 145 took place at Atlanta's Phillips Arena, and in the headliner, UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones defended his title with a unanimous-decision victory over Rashad Evans. On the two-hour FX-televised prelims, which followed earlier prelims on Facebook, notables such as Travis Browne, Matt Brown, Mac Danzig and Anthony Njokuani picked up victories.


Previously, Spike TV aired 27 "UFC Prelims" specials that averaged 1.5 million viewers. The UFC 145 prelims special is the first on FX to best that average.

Additionally, every FX-televised UFC prelims special has topped ratings for the previous one.

That's good stuff, good growth. From about 1 million in January to 1.6 million in April? That's how you do it. This deal is just getting started too, I can't wait to see what things are looking like a year from now
