UFC Fight Night 40 "Brown vs. Silva" drew 655,000


UFC Fight Night 40 "Brown vs. Silva" drew 655,000 viewers to Fox Sports 1.

Last week's UFC Fight Night 40 event on Fox Sports 1 saw a slight uptick in viewership from April's "Ultimate Fighter: Nations" Finale on the network.

According to a report from MMAPayout.com, the May 10 broadcast drew an average of 655,000 viewers to FS1, which was up slightly from the 641,000 who tuned in last month. Additionally, 352,000 viewers tuned in for the Fox Sports Live broadcast following the event, a much higher number than the show normally garners.

The UFC Fight Night 40 card was headlined by the fantastic Matt Brown vs. Erick Silva bout, but had competition on the night with both the NBA playoffs on cable, and a replay of the previous week's Mayweather-Maidana pay-per-view on HBO.

Congrats on finally making it to last week. ;-)
