Up to this point in the season, episode three had the highest marks with former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson making an appearance, but now the fifth episode is tops for the year to date.
The ratings spiked to a 1.93 share in males 18-49, with a 2.2 in males 18-34, keeping the “Ultimate Fighter” a staple in a key demographic.
The season has showcased Koscheck coaching against UFC 124 opponent Georges St. Pierre, and a cast of lightweights hoping to become the next champion of the show.
