So it’s a shame that the fight itself was something of a disappointment. In less than 3 minutes, Eddie Alvarez avenged a 2008...
UFC 145's live prelims that aired on FX on Saturday garnered a record-breaking audience. The show drew 1.6 million viewers on average, which is the highest-rated UFC program to ever air on FX.
