UFC 141 A HUGE SUCCESS – Ratings Through the Roof – THE NUMBERS

By Vinnie Franklin

Spike TV put up the “Prelims” of UFC 141 and they got the asses in the seats man. They reported a viewership of 1.8 million, making it the second all time among all of the UFC specials that the network has put on.

The one hour special featured Ross Pearson taking on Junior Assuncao along with Danny Castillo facing Anthony Njokuani…and the people LOVED it. We were all waiting for that main event, but we had something to chew on. These guys all threw down and I sat there with my 1.8 million MMA friends and enjoyed the hell out of it. Spike TV spiked the ball right in the face of the other networks. How’d that taste?
