UFC Fight Night 108 took place at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville,
Tenn., and saw Cub Swanson
take a five-round verdict over Artem Lobov
in the evening’s main event. Ratings peaked during the
featherweight headliner at 831,000. The beginning of the main card
aired on Fox Sports 2 until 10:32 p.m. ET/7:32 PT because a Major
League Baseball broadcast ran longer than expected.
The main card drew 415,000 viewers in the adult 18-to-49 year-old
demographic. Meanwhile, the Fox Sport 2-televised preliminary card
drew 320,000 viewers overall and 178,000 viewers in the 18-49
The ratings reflected a drop from previous Fox Sports 1 Fight Night
events in 2017, as the previous four non-Fight Pass events drew a
minimum of 907,000 viewers (UFC Fight Night 105) for the main card
and peaked at 1.158 million (UFC Fight NIght 104). UFC Fight Night
108 had competition, however, including the NBA and NHL Playoffs as
well as a Showtime Boxing card.
