UFC 193 post-fight show for 'Rousey vs Holm' sets ratings record on FOX Sports 1

Matt Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

There was a lot to talk about in the aftermath of UFC 193.

That's because Holly Holm stopped Ronda Rousey in the pay-per-view (PPV) main event last Saturday night (Nov. 14, 2015) in Australia (watch it) and following the two rounds of carnage, fans tuned in to FOX Sports 1 to watch the UFC on FOX team deconstruct "Rousey vs. Holm."

490,000 fans, to be exact.

Additional replays were "strong" with 157,000 viewers (3:30 a.m.), 66,000 viewers (6 a.m.), and 147,000 viewers (8 p.m.), according to MMA Fighting, while the UFC 193 prelims, headlined by Jake Matthews vs. Akbarh Arreola, drew 1,394,000 viewers, the third largest audience for PPV prelims in network history.

By comparison, the UFC 193 pre-fight show did 576,000 viewers, the second largest in network history for a PPV lead in and the largest ever in the key 18-49 demo. In addition, Dave Meltzer reports the "Rousey vs. Holm" weigh-in event returned 161,000 viewers, 44 percent above the 112,000 viewer average.

Not surprising, when you consider this.
