UFC on Fuel TV 2 PosterSaturday’s UFC on Fuel TV 2: Gustafsson vs. Silva marked the UFC’s second live event on Fuel TV, drawing an average audience of 197,000 viewers.

That’s down slightly from the promotion’s premier live event on the network, UFC on Fuel TV 1: Sanchez vs. Ellenberger. UFC on Fuel TV 1 drew an average audience of 217,000 viewers.

While these numbers are modest compared to many networks, Fuel TV executives have been ecstatic with the TV ratings that these shows and other UFC programming has drawn on the network. For Fuel TV, these numbers represent a solid increase over past programming, prior to the UFC.

UFC on Fuel TV 2 featured the further ascension of Alexander Gustafsson up the light heavyweight ranks. He had to go to a decision for the first time in his career, but did enough to win a unanimous decision over one his toughest opponents in Thiago Silva.
