UFC 105 Averages 2.9 Million Viewers, Spike Boasts About Beating CBS In Young Male Demos

Spike TV logoSpike has released the ratings for UFC 105. The event drew an average 2.9 million viewers and peaked at 3.7 million viewers during the Couture-Vera main event. MMA Payout has more:

UFC 105 on Spike TV drew a 1.9 HH rating for an average 2.9 million viewers last Saturday night. The event also fared well in the M18-34 and M18-49 demographics with a 3.45 and 2.84, respectively.

While Strikeforce/CBS outperformed UFC 105/Spike in average and total viewership, Spike wasn’t shy about letting everyone know they beat CBS in the younger male demographics, especially the rarely-mentioned-but-we’re-going-to-include-it-to-say-we-smoked-them-in-something 18-24 male demo.

  • P 18-34 by 30%  (UFC 105 2.37, CBS Saturday Night Fights 1.82)
  • M 18-34 by 49%  (UFC 105 3.45, CBS Saturday Night Fights 2.32)
  • M 18-24 by 73%  (UFC 105 2.99, CBS Saturday Night Fights 1.73)
  • M 25-34 by 37%  (UFC 105 3.78, CBS Saturday Night Fights 2.76)
  • M 18-49 by 16%  (UFC 105 2.84, CBS Saturday Night Fights 2.45)

The funny, yet kinda sad thing is the TUF 10 Finale in a couple weeks is probably going to blow both events out of the water with Kimbo on the card.
