UFC 125: ‘Resolution’ prelims draw 829,000 viewers in Ion Television debut


The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) drew 829,000 viewers in its debut on Ion Television. This is the first televised UFC preliminary card that failed to attract over one million viewers.

The three-fight broadcast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada featured the demise of "The New York Bad Ass" Phil Baroni as he was knocked out by Brad Tavares.

Josh Grispi failed to mount any offense on Dustin Poirier as the former number one contender to Jose Aldo's featherweight title lost to "The Diamond" by unanimous decision.

Marcus Davis looked to be cruising to a unanimous decision victory until Jeremy Stephens put his lights out at two minutes and 33 seconds of the third and final round.
