UFC on Versus 1 Draws 1.24 Million Viewers

UFC on Versus 1 PosterSunday’s “UFC on Versus 1: Vera vs. Jones”, the UFC’s debut card on Versus, drew 1.24 million viewers, the sports network today announced.

Headlined by Brandon Vera vs. Jon Jones, the event outdrew most Versus-televised cards of sister promotion World Extreme Cagefighting, including this month’s WEC 47, which drew just 373,000 viewers, but fell short of June 2008’s WEC 34, headlined by Urijah Faber vs. Jens Pulver, which drew more than 1.5 million viewers.

UFC on Versus 1 also ranked behind most UFC Fight Night cards on Spike, including January’s UFC Fight Night 20, which was headlined by Gray Maynard vs. Nick Diaz and averaged 1.7 million viewers.

The UFC will return to Versus on August 1 with UFC on Versus 2 in Oakland, California.
