UFC 116 Prelims on Spike TV draw 1.3 million viewers

Down just a fraction from the 1.5 million viewers that tuned in to watch the UFC 115¬†Prelims on Spike TV, the preliminary bouts aired on Spike TV for last weekend’s UFC 116 drew a healthy 1.3 million total viewers.

The preliminary card that aired on Spike TV served as an appetizer to UFC 116 which aired on pay-per-view.

Two bouts were featured on the broadcast, as Brendan Schaub TKO’d Chris Tuchscherer with ease in the first round of a havyweight contest, and Ricardo Romero battled back with a broken jaw to submit Seth Petruzelli in the second round in light heavyweight action.

The preliminary bouts on Spike served to set up the main card where Brock Lesnar became the undisputed king of the heavyweights with a second round submission of Shane Carwin.
