Ratings Report: TUF 17 Episode 2 Brings In 1.27 Million Viewers | UFC NEWS


The UFC’s hit reality series, The Ultimate Fighter, hit TV sets this past Tuesday on FX and brought in a respectable 1.27 million viewers.

This number signifies a 16% drop from the shows debut just a week prior but still proves that the new format and air-date of Tuesday is a success.

The second episode in question featured an exciting fight between Team Sonnen’s, Luke Barnatt and Team Jones fighter, Gilbert Smith. In the second round Barnatt was able to secure victory with a flying knee KO which earned him the first official tournament win this season.

With the 1.27 million mark the show placed fifth in its time slot amongst the 18-49 demographic.
