Between the hours of 8 and 10 p.m Saturday night 1.5 million fans tuned in to watch UFC 198 prelims (786,000 viewers) and Bellator (709,000 viewers).

UFC 198 prelims were headlined by Demian Maia and Matt Brown. The main event saw Maia defeat Brown via rear-naked choke, much to the pleasure of the Brazilian crowd. In fact, had you tuned in you might have seen a tussle between Brown and multiple fans during his walkout.

Bellator's card was headlined by Phil Davis and King Mo Lawal in San Jose, California. Davis ended up de-crowning Mo via decision. This card was also particularly important as it was first show since Bellator fighter Jordan Parson's passing.

Both cards were the top watched live sports events on television that night.

I'm curious which of the big shows you tuned in to watch?


Which card did you watch on Saturday night?
