For the second time, a UFC on FUEL TV event's same-day replay outdrew its live broadcast.

But given the UFC's most recent installment, UFC on FUEL TV 6, and its early-morning start time, it's understandable.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with industry sources that the Nov. 10 event, which aired live from Macau, drew 88,000 viewers for its initial airing (9 a.m. ET/6 a.m. PT).

Ten hours later, a replay drew 143,000 viewers.

A second replay, which aired the following morning at 1 a.m. ET, drew 59,000 viewers. The three showings produced an overall audience of 290,000 viewers.

It helped produced the third-most-watched day in FUEL TV history (and its fourth-highest primetime ratings in the channel's history)...

FUEL needs to be free, like Fox, FX, ESPN free... watch those ratings jump 1,000-5,000% easy.

Not that surprising, on the ratings spike, given that it was on a time much more people are awake. Plus all the chatter of the huge KO by Le, would probably help too.

I agree with P$

Fuel just isn't as accessible, as most other channels, you pretty much always have to have a higher tier cable package in order to get the channel.
