UFC Prelims See An Increase In Ratings

A month after their lowest ratings of the year, the UFC Prelims prior to UFC 119 last Saturday earned a 0.9/1.3 rating on Spike TV.

The live broadcast peaked with 1.36 million viewers according to Spike TV officials, which featured two preliminary-card bouts from Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The UFC Prelims before UFC 118 drew a series-low 1.1 million viewers.

UFC’s concept of teasing their pay-per-view broadcast with live fights is a great idea that boxing should consider … if they had undercards worth caring about.
