Wednesday night’s edition of “The Ultimate Fighter” scored an average audience of 1.7 million viewers for a 1.3 household rating. The ratings slipped slightly from last week’s 1.8 million viewers, but the rating was high enough to make it the second-highest-rated cable program among men 18-48 and 18-34.
The episode featured a bout between Nick Ring and Court McGee. Ring, a member of Team Ortiz, won the bout in a controversial decision that angered coach Chuck Liddell. Ring advanced to the season quarterfinals with the win.
