Saturday night’s hour long preliminary show for UFC 133 on Spike TV drew 1.4 million viewers according to figures released today.

The show peaked with 1,436,000 million viewers in the third quarter of the broadcast and delivered a 1.0 household rating while also providing the No.1 spot in the key 18-34 and 18-49 year-old male demographics.

The figures are within the ballpark we’ve come to expect from the Spike TV prelim shows over the past couple of years, placing it joint 9th out of the 22 that have aired since September of 2009.

On this occasion the show featured what would later prove to be Matt Hamill’s final fight before retirement against Alexander Gustafsson, coming just a few months after Hamill headlined UFC 130 opposite ‘Rampage’ Jackson, plus a significant featherweight fight between title contender Chad Mendes and Rani Yahya.

Here’s the 15min breakdowns for the Spike TV broadcast:

8:00 p.m.: 1,326,000
8:15 p.m.: 1,414,000
8:30 p.m.: 1,436,000
8:45 p.m.: 1,303,000
