The official TV viewing figures have now been released for Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night 25 event on Spike TV and show that an average of 1.8 million tuned in to see the two hour live broadcast.

The show peaked with 1.95 million viewers during the final quarter of the broadcast and scored a 1.6 rating for both males aged 18-34 and 18-49.

Overall these can be seen as decent numbers given that this was a card that received very little in the way of a promotional push, did not feature a star-studded fight card and was falling in the shadow of the boxing pay-per-view between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Victor Ortiz.

In comparison to other recent Fight Night events this one was was down from the 2.2 million that tuned in for UFN 24 and the 1.85 million who watched UFN 23. It did however better the 1.6 million recorded by UFN 23 back in September of last year.
