While the UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot TV ratings drew 1.1 million viewers and gave a much needed boost to The Ultimate Fighter, the Browne vs. Bigfoot preliminary bouts on Fuel TV drew much lower any past prelim broadcasts.

The UFC on FX 5 Prelims on Fuel TV drew an audience of just 44,000 on Friday. That’s the lowest mark for any such broadcast on the action sports network. The previous low was 86,000 for UFC on FX 3 in June.

Preliminary bouts on Fuel TV typically draw well over 100,000 viewers on Fuel TV, and have peaked as high as 165,000 viewers for the TUF Live Finale.

It remains to be seen if Friday’s numbers are just a blip on the radar, as Fuel TV executives have been extremely happy with the numbers the network has drawn since it became the cornerstone for UFC programming on Fox networks.

TV ratings have grown month after month since the UFC debuted on Fuel TV in January. This year’s third quarter ratings were the highest ever in network’s history.
