According to our friends over at MMAPayout.com, The Countdown to UFC 90 drew 796,000 viewers. The show hit TV’s on Spike last Thursday. If true, that would make it the most watched UFC countdown show in history.
Adam Swift has also come up with a fairly accurate formula to project buys off of countdown shows and is estimating that UFC 90 will draw 626,839.
That would be a huge number given the relative weakness of the card and lack of a mainstream star. We’ll get the official numbers out as soon as they become available.
