TUF 17 Logo Team Jones vs. Team SonnenThe Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen is now at the halfway point of its run, and holding steady in the TV ratings.

Tuesday night’s Episode 6 drew an audience of 1.14 million viewers, according to TVbytheNumbers.com. That number is nearly identical to the previous week’s 1.13 million viewers.
