UFC 135 ‘Prelims Live’ Nets 1.6 Million Viewers on Spike TV
Spike TV’s UFC
“Prelims Live” broadcast netted an average of 1.6 million
viewers on Saturday night, network officials announced Tuesday.
The hour-long live special featured two bouts and immediately
preceded the promotion’s pay-per-view telecast. The first televised
prelim saw Tim Boetsch
continue his winning ways at middleweight, as “The Barbarian”
outpointed previously undefeated Nick Ring on
all three judges’ scorecards. In the second Spike bout, Tony
Ferguson did not allow his scrap with Aaron Riley
to go the distance, as “El Cucuy” stopped the veteran via
first-round technical knockout.
The broadcast earned a 1.1 household rating, as well as ratings of
1.4 and 1.7 in the Male 18-49 and M18-34 demographics,
respectively. The show peaked during its second quarter-hour,
attracting over 1.73 million viewers. The telecast was also the
highest-rated program in its time slot in each of the
aforementioned male demographics.
Headlined by a light heavyweight title confrontation between
Jones and Quinton
Jackson, UFC 135 marked the promotion’s first trip to Denver
since 1995. Emanating from the Pepsi Center, the event showcased
Jones’ dominant first title defense, as “Bones” cruised to a
fourth-round submission victory over “Rampage.”

There are far bigger, more relevant fighters to main event a mixed martial arts card than James Te Huna and Nate "The Great" Marquardt. However, when it comes to sheer desperation, Te Huna and Marquardt should have plenty.
Both men are on a losing streak and can ill-afford another loss. That dynamic could make the feature bout of UFC Fight Night 43 in New Zealand a smashing affair. This card will be exclusively broadcast Saturday, June 28, on UFC Fight Pass. Click here for details.
