UFC Fight Night 10 rating is in

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, UFC Fight Night 10 from Hollywood, Fla. drew a 1.2 in the ratings on Spike TV this past Tuesday night.

If you’re looking for past numbers to compare the number to, look no further:

UFN 9 – 1.2 (Stevenson vs Guillard)
UFN 8 – 1.7 (Salmon vs Evans)
UFN 7 – 1.3 (Joe Riggs vs Diego Sanchez)
UFN 6 – 1.5 (Sanchez vs Parysian)
UFN 5 – 1.4 (Leben vs Silva)
UFN 4 – 1.6 (Bonnar vs Jardine)
UFN 3 – 1.7 (Sylvia vs Silva)

My guess is that there are some very happy folks at the Spike TV and UFC offices today.

    It was a good card; I enjoyed it. But why would the folks at Spike TV and the UFC offices be “very happy”? 1.2 is a tie for the lowest rating amongst all of the UFN’s since UFN 3. Not exactly a cause for celebration, right? What am I missing here?

    I think that you’re missing that the card lacked serious star power and easily could have done much worse in the ratings, especially when you consider how much televised MMA is taking place this month.

    Fair point about the lack of serious star power (meaning that 1.2 ain’t so bad). I was excited to see both Fitch and Stout (two guys who will likely be stars), but admittedly they aren’t yet household names.

    Great site, by the way.

    Ralph, don’t get me wrong, I was looking forward to seeing Stout, Fisher, Fitch, and McFedries to. But to the novice/mainstream fan, I just didn’t see a big hook for them.

    Thanks for the kind words about the site.
