Looks like Jimmy Conrad got the last laugh.
If the plan is to unseat international soccer's reign of supremacy in the ratings, you'll probably first have to beat soccer in the United States, but that didn't happen this past weekend.
UFC on Fox 8 didn't exactly bring the house down on Saturday night (July 27, 2013) in Seattle, Washington, taking home 2.04 million viewers for a 1.6 overnight rating.
Believe it or not, the event, which was headlined by a UFC Flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and John Moraga, wasn't even the most watched sports programming on Fox this weekend. The United States men's soccer team competed in the 2013 Gold Cup, defeating Panama (1-0) on Sunday afternoon, managing to bring in a 1.8 rating to edge out UFC despite the latter's primetime placement.
Not bad for, as White calls it, "the least talented sport on Earth."
