ufc 194

Officials promised record-breaking numbers for UFC 194, and the prelims have delivered.

The four-bout card that aired this past Saturday night, was watched by an average of 1.931 million viewers, according to numbers from Nielsen.

Over the two-hour block, fans saw Urijah Faber defeat Frankie Saenz, Tecia Torres top Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger, Warlley Alves submit Colby Covington and Leonardo Santos finish Kevin Lee.

The number was the highest since prelims moved over to FOX Sports 1.

UFC 194, highlighted by Conor McGregor knocking out Jose Aldo, drew 16,516 fans to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for a live gate of $10.1 million.

Both those numbers were tops for the UFC in terms of live gate and attendance for an event in Nevada – which has hosted 96 prior cards.
