UFC on Fox 12: Lawler vs. Brown was undoubtedly one of the best free cards that we’ll see this year from the UFC. Matt Brown and Robbie Lawler left it all in the ring and we walked away the better for it. Apparently viewers on Fox felt the same way and UFC on Fox 12 showed marked improvement from UFC on Fox 11, which did under 2 million viewers. Baby steps.
UFC on Fox 12 scored 2.5 million viewers, which might not be up to previous standards, but was definitely better than the last outing. UFC on Fox 1 featuring Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos is still the highest rated UFC on Fox event with 5.7 million viewers. Not a bad showing from UFC on Fox 12, though. [source]
