UFC Fight Night 25 Draws 1.8 Million Viewers

Jake Ellenberger

1.8 million viewers tuned in for UFN 25

An average of 1.8 million viewers tuned into Spike TV this past Saturday for “UFC Fight Night 25.”

MMAjunkie.com reported the news.

The event took place on September 17 and featured Jake Ellenberger‘s first round technical knockout victory over Jake Shields in the evening’s main event. In the co-main event, Court McGee defeated Dongi Yang via unanimous decision.

To go along with the impressive amount of viewers, the event ranked first in the time slot for the demographic of men ages 18-34. Meanwhile, the amount of viewers peaked at 1.95 million near the midpoint of the broadcast.

While Spike TV certainly received good numbers for the event, the company’s relationship with the UFC is about to come to an end. The leading MMA promotion has teamed up with Fox, and Spike TV, which was called home by the reality series “The Ultimate Fighter” for 13 seasons, is set to air just one more season of the show.
