TUF Live Finale ratings: Prelims on FUEL TV draw all-time best 165,000 viewers

This past weekend preliminary card for The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale drew 165,000 viewers and peaked with 241,000 on FUEL TV, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with industry sources.

That's a new all-time best for FUEL TV's preliminary-card broadcasts, which averaged 123,000 viewers over the first four events.

The TUF Live Finale prelims, which preceded the night's FX-televised main card, featured four fights spread out over two hours.

The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale took place June 1 at The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. In featured prelims, Daron Cruickshank earned a decision victory over "TUF: Live" cast mate Chris Tickle, and Myles Jury submitted Chris Saunders in the first round.

The TUF Live Finale prelims produced the most-watched Friday prime time in FUEL TV history. It was also the second-most watched Friday (all day) in the channel's history.

As MMAjunkie.com reported earlier today, the TUF Live Finale main card averaged 1 million FX viewers.

To date, FUEL TV has aired eight UFC events. The TUF Live Finale ranks fourth overall and No. 1 among preliminary-card broadcasts.

The UFC recently moved much of its live-event programming from Spike TV to FX and FUEL TV thanks to its seven-year deal with FOX. Although currently cable TV's lowest-rated cable station (in which ratings information is available), FUEL TV has increased from approximately 30 million homes to 36 million in the past few months due in large part to the new UFC programming.

The all-time UFC-FUEL TV ratings include:
UFC on FUEL TV 1 ratings (main card): 217,000 viewers
UFC on FUEL TV 2 ratings (main card): 197,000
UFC on FUEL TV 3 ratings (main card): 173,000
TUF Live Finale (prelims): 165,000
UFC on FX 1 ratings (prelims): 148,000
UFC on FOX 2 ratings (prelims): 144,000
UFC on FX 2 ratings (prelims): 113,000
UFC on FOX 3 ratings (prelims): 86,000
