Fox Sports officials confirmed the ratings for UFC on Fox 6: Johnson vs. Dodson. The event saw a four fight main card including a flyweight title fight broadcast on the Fox network. Prelims were shown on FX and an additional prelim was shown on UFC’s Facebook page. The event averaged a 2.4/4 average household rating/share, with an average of 4.2 million viewers. The audience peaked to 5.2 million for the UFC flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson.

Fox UFC Saturday out-rated the combined averages of ABC, CBS, and NBC among Men 18-34 (.8 vs. 3.0), Men 18-49 (1.5 vs. 3.0), Adults 18-34 (1.1 vs. 2.2), and Adults 18-49 (2.0 vs. 3.1). The 3.0 men 18-34 demographic ratings is a 7% increase over the 2.8 recorded in the same demo for UFC on Fox 5 last December.

The card opened with a 1.9/3 with 3.4 million viewers for the Erik Koch vs. Ricardo Lamas bout.

The Johnson vs. Dodson flyweight title fight ended the night with a 3.1/5 average and 5.2 million viewers.

The main event averaged a 3.5 for Men 18-34 and Men 18-49. This ranks third for the week in prime time among Men 18-34, only behind the NFL Pro-Bowl and Family Guy. It was fifth among Men 18-49.

The next UFC event to be hosted on Fox will be on April 20 headlined by a UFC title bout with Ben Henderson defending his title against the last Strikeforce lightweight champion, Gilbert Melendez.
