Friday night’s UFC on FX 6: Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson, which was broadcast live from Australia on FX, pulled in the lowest TV ratings of any UFC on FX.

I don't think this should surprise anyone

I don't think this is an issue. Fox are committed and have a long-term deal with the UFC.

They were good cards, but for the casual fan it lacked the big name.

Back to back fight nights will have this result, and like others have stated, lack of name recognition has a lot to do with it. I still don't think FOX is doing that great of a job advertising for these and Fuel shows. They reap what they sew...possibly buttons.
