‘TUF 17’ Episode 8 Attracts 1.1 Million Viewers to FX



Episode 8 of “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 17 averaged 1.1 million viewers for its one-hour broadcast Tuesday night on FX.

Sherdog.com confirmed the figure Wednesday with an industry source. The reported viewership marks a slight downturn for the UFC reality series, which earned 1.26 million viewers during last week’s show.

Episode 8 of the long-running program saw Chael Sonnen defeat Jon Jones in a coaches’ challenge involving heavy machinery. Dylan Andrews punched his ticket to the quarterfinals by outpointing Zak Cummings in a majority decision.

The episode also featured the season’s wildcard selection, which UFC President Dana White uncharacteristically left solely in the hands of the coaches. As a result, Team Sonnen’s Kevin Casey will face Team Jones’ Robert McDaniel next week to determine the eighth fighter in the Season 17 quarterfinals.
