UFC 136 Prelims on Spike Hit TV Ratings Low for the Series

As the UFC’s time on Spike TV winds down, so are its TV ratings on the network. At least that was the case on Saturday night.

There have been 22 episodes of UFC Prelims Live on Spike, but none rated lower than the UFC 136 Prelims from Houston. The prelim bouts on Saturday night pulled in an average audience of 1.0 million viewers.

That’s more than a third less audience than tuned in for the last prelims broadcast on Spike. The UFC 135 prelims pulled in an average of 1.6 million viewers.

Saturday night’s prelims featured former WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis winning a split decision over Jeremy Stephens and Demian Maia continuing his stay as a top contender in the middleweight division with a decision win over former Sengoku champion Jorge Santiago.

The UFC Prelims Live have averaged 1.42 million viewers per episode over the course of its 22 showings on Spike.
