Saturday's prelims were up +13% on household rating (1.04 vs. 0.92) and +10% on average audience (1,322,000 vs. 1,205,000) over the prelims for Rousey's last main event PPV card (2/28/15) on FOX Sports 1 in which she defeated challenger Cat Zingano at UFC 184 in 14 seconds.

FOX Sports 1's UFC 190 PREFIGHT SHOW on Saturday (7:00 PM - 8:00 PM ET) tallied 518,000 viewers making it the third most-watched PPV prefight in FOX Sports 1 history.
