Spike TV says its Tuesday, Oct. 10, Ultimate Fighting Championship bout drew its biggest-ever audience at an average 4.2 million viewers.
Its previous record was 2.8 million viewers on June 24 for the finale of Ultimate Fighter 3.
The Tuesday bout was a two-hour event, but the fight itself was a short one. Tito “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Ortiz knocked out Ken “The [inaptly named] World’s Most Dangerous Man” Shamrock in the first round.
The bout drew more men 18-34 than the MLB playoff game up against it on Fox, said Spike.
