UFC made its premier on an Irish Station on Saturday night, and 243,000 Irish fight fans tuned into 3e to watch Irish hero Conor McGregor win again in the Octagon, with a spectacular TKO.
The show peaked at a massive 7.80 ratings for adults 15-24 and smashed all previous 3e ratings for sporting shows!
The 3e mega show, even managed to do a blistering 5.88 ratings for HK+CH, which bar ‘I’m a celebrity get me outta here’ is the highest a show has achieved for this audience in the last three years. Let it never be said that UFC isn’t for the fairer audience!!
On a side note, if anyone was lucky enough to be at a certain pub on O’Connell street on the eve of the fight, UFC president Dana White, was rumoured to be buying rounds for the whole bar!!
