The live Spike TV broadcast of Saturday’s UFC “Fight for the Troops 2” earned an average of 1.85 million viewers. The event, which took place at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, also garnered a 1.3 household rating and peaked with 2.5 million viewers.

A replay of the event, shown immediately after the live airing, earned a 0.5 rating and garnered an additional 632,000 viewers.

Sherdog.com confirmed the ratings with Spike TV executives on Tuesday. The numbers were first reported by MMAJunkie.com. Headlined by a lightweight bout between Melvin Guillard and Evan Dunham, the show was attended by approximately 3,200 members of the United States Armed Forces and served as a fundraiser for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

In the evening’s main event, Guillard shocked oddsmakers by dropping Dunham with a laser-like right hand midway through the first round. From that point, the outcome was elementary, as Guillard finished his opponent with a flurry of punches and a nasty knee from the Thai plum.

The card also featured a pair of heavyweight clashes, as former K-1 talent Pat Barry chopped down Joey Beltran, and Matt Mitrione used great movement to dispose of Tim Hague.

Lightweight Yves Edwards earned two post-fight bonuses for his efforts against “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 12 alum Cody McKenzie, as Edwards took home both “Submission of the Night” and “Fight of the Night” honors. Edwards escaped a scare early in the second frame, during which the lanky Alaskan took his back, only to reverse the position and sink in a fight-ending rear-naked choke of his own. Edwards’ bout, along with three other preliminary contests, was streamed live over social networking site Facebook.

Additionally, Mark Hominick cemented his status as the UFC’s top featherweight contender, as the Canadian destroyed George Roop with a lightning-quick, 88-second knockout. Rounding out the main card was a lightweight affair between Matt Wiman and Cole Miller that saw Wiman bully Miller for three rounds en route to a unanimous decision victory.
