UFC Vegas 11, featuring the main event between welterweights Colby Covington and Tyron Woodley, pulled in over one million viewers on ESPN+.
Mike Coppinger from The Athletic reported that the ratings for UFC Vegas 11: Covington vs. Woodlet are great considering there were NBA playoffs and the NHL Stanley Cup on the same night.
UFC Fight Night headlined by Colby Covington-Tyrone Woodley pulled in more than 1 million unique viewers on ESPN+ on Saturday, sources tell @TheAthletic . A big number on its own, but especially considering the NBA Eastern Conference Final and Stanley Cup Final were that night
These are great numbers for the event, particularly since sports fans had multiple big-event options the same night. Instead, over one million people watched Covington defeat Woodley via fifth-round TKO in the main event. Covington and Woodley are not friendly with one another and waited a long time to fight each other in the Octagon, but it was Covington who got the last laugh when he stopped Woodley late.
