The UFC Fight Night 134 main card averaged 492,000 viewers on Fox Sports 1 on Sunday, according to figures released by ShowBuzz Daily.
That ranks as the lowest figure for a Fight Night card on FS1 this year, but the ratings are comparable to other UFC events recently held on Sunday. For example: Last year’s UFC Fight Night 113, which took place on Sunday, July 16 and was headlined by a welterweight clash between Santiago Ponzinibbio and Gunnar Nelson, attracted an audience of 402,000 to FS1.
UFC Fight Night 134 took place at Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg Germany. In the evening’s main event, Anthony Smith knocked out Mauricio Rua in 89 seconds, while Corey Anderson earned a decision victory over Glover Teixeira in the co-feature. Both bouts featured replacement opponents, as Rua was originally scheduled to face Volkan Oezdemir and Teixeira was initially paired with Ilir Latifi.
Meanwhile, the UFC Fight Night 134 prelims averaged 271,000 viewers on FS1. That portion of the card featured a lightweight tilt between Damir Hadzovic and Nick Hein, which Hadzovic won via split decision. The card was not one of the promotion’s most memorable and featured a grand total of 10 decisions – tying it for the most in UFC history.
