Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers pulls 5.46 million viewers

5,460,000 viewers is about 5,459,992 more than what my functional alcoholic neighbor pulled when she was arguing with my other neighbor last month because ‘her car was too yellow’ (true story). The Nielsen ratings are in and Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers pulled in a total of 5.46 million viewers. The broadcast was king in the 18-34 demographics and it beat out all college football games that aired during the 9:00pm – 11:30pm time slot (including my University of Arizona’s homecoming game. Damn you Stri…oh we played Washington State? Never mind). So what does this mean for CBS and Strikeforce? Well, a lot of guys like seeing men in butt shorts mounting each other in a cage. It also means that Strikeforce can now claim at top spot as one of the most watched MMA events in history. However we all know who the ratings king of MMA is…

Despite having a record of only 4-1, three of the four most watched MMA events in history belong to Kimbo Slice. Two of which aired on CBS (which technically makes CBS the most watched provider of MMA in history?) and the other was the ‘vicious’ ground and pound from Roy Nelson on this season of TUF 10. 

To save you from scouring on the net the rest of the afternoon, the four most watched MMA events are: Kimbo Slice vs. James Thompson – 7.281, Tito Ortiz vs. Ken Shamrock – 6.524, Kimbo Slice vs. Seth Petruzelli – 6.451 and Kimbo Slice vs. Roy Nelson – 6.1. [Source]
