Strikeforce ‘Fedor vs. Henderson’ Pulls Solid Ratings For Showtime

Fedor Emelianenko may be having trouble getting his hand raised, but he doesn’t seem to be having any problems attracting viewers to Showtime.

The ratings are in from Saturday night’s Strikeforce “Fedor vs. Henderson” broadcast, and they’re good enough to rank fourth on the list of top-rated Strikeforce-Showtime shows.

This past weekend’s “Strikeforce and M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Henderson” event drew a 1.7 household rating and ranked fourth all-time in Strikeforce-Showtime history with 571,000 viewers.

The event peaked with 778,000 viewers for the night’s main event.

Fedor vs. Henderson was only bested by SF Fedor vs. Silva (741,000), SF Overeem vs. Werdum (624,000) and SF Carano vs. Cyborg (576,000).

Fedor may not be winning, but clearly people still want to see him fight. He at least has that going for him if and when his management team enters their next round of negotiations.
