The UFC Fight for the Troops show that took place last Saturday night at Fort Hood in Texas was a ratings success for Spike TV with a peak of 2.5 million viewers during the broadcast.

Spike TV officials announced the numbers on Tuesday.

The broadcast which benefitted the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund showcased several top fighters from the UFC, and ended up pulling in a 1.3 household rating with a 1.6 rating in men 18-49.

“With our two Fight for the Troops events, we’ve raised over $8.5 million for soldiers dealing with traumatic brain injury, burns and amputations,” UFC President Dana White said. “We’ve created worldwide awareness for traumatic brain injury through our support of the troops.”

The main event showcased lightweight Melvin Guillard in his biggest performance yet as he TKO’d Evan Dunham to catapult him one step closer to the top of the 155lb division.
