UFC on FUEL TV 2: Gustafsson vs. Silva Ratings Dip Slightly


MMAJunkie reports that last weekend's UFC on FUEL TV 2: Gustafsson vs. Silva fight card pulled in an audience of 197,000 viewers to the obscure cable network.

The ratings show a slight drop from the promotion's first offering on the network, UFC on Fuel TV: Sanchez vs. Ellenberger which generated an audience of 217,000.

UFC on FUEL TV 2 marked the first time ever that the promotion took its traveling circus to Sweden, with the event going down at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. As a result of the event taking place overseas, it aired Stateside in a much earlier timeslot than usual UFC shows.

The main event featured a light heavyweight tilt between the surging Alexander Gustafsson and Thiago Silva. Swedish native Gustafsson outclassed Silva over three rounds to take home a unanimous decision victory, as well as to earn a ton of unfair and off-base comparisons to Jon Jones.

In the co-main event, Brian Stann knocked out Alessio Sakara in one round to get back in the win column.
