It looks like the lighter-weight fighters are a draw, after all. TJ Dillashaw’s second defense of his UFC Bantamweight Championship against Renan Barao was watched by 2.29 million people, according to TV By the Numbers

Overnight ratings are not official, but the official ratings should be revealed later on this week. Dave Meltzer noted that the report only took into consideration the 8:00 ET – 10:00 ET portion of the card and Dillashaw’s championship defense started at 10:00 PM. As a result of this, numbers are expected to see a big rise when official ratings are released.
