The final numbers are in for UFC Fight Night 24 in Seattle. It is now the most watched UFC Fight Night telecast since September 2009.

The rating released on Tuesday revealed that the show reached a peak of 2.4 million viewers during the Anthony Johnson vs. Dan Hardy match-up. The welterweights promised to become the main event, and according to the numbers, they certainly fit the bill.

Overall the show averaged 2.2 million viewers for the Saturday night broadcast, and rated a 2.3 in males 18-34.

The card already pulled in some of the largest numbers ever for attendance and live gate, and now the ratings back it up with some strong pull from the television audience as well.
