Spike TV Outdraws UFC On Fuel TV 1 With Re-Runs Of Old UFC Fights

On Wednesday night Spike TV counter-programmed the live ‘UFC On Fuel TV: Sanchez Vs Ellenberger’ event with a repackaged collection of Diego Sanchez past fights and a re-run of the TUF 13 finale.

The programming produced an average of 674,000 viewers, a little over three-times as much as the amount of viewers Fuel TV were able to muster for their live broadcast (217,000).

These numbers aren’t unxepected given that Spike TV has a long-running association with being the place for UFC coverage, plus the network reaches almost three times as many homes as Fuel TV (99 million compared to 36 million).

Ross launched MMA Insight (previously FightOfTheNight.com) in 2009 as a way to channel his passion for the sport of mixed martial arts. He's since penned countless news stories and live fight reports along with dozens of feature articles as the lead writer for the site, reaching millions of fans in the process.
