UFC NEWS – UFC Ends Relationship With SPIKE TV With 1.8 Million Viewers Tuning Into To The UFC 141 Prelims Special
An era is over, but it went out with a bang.
The UFC 141 Preliminary card special on SPIKETV which aired live last Friday marked the last live UFC program to air on the cable network.
With the New Year, comes the new FOX deal and the UFC now moves to a host of new FOX affiliate networks, leaving SPIKE TV in their dust.
Still, the very last airing of UFC content, UFC 141 Prelims Special, cashed in on an astonishing 1.8 million viewers. The result marks the second highest watch prelims show on the network in UFC/Spike TV history.
The one-hour special featured Ross Pearson vs. Junior Assuncao and Danny Castillo vs. Anthony Njokuani. The show was the 26th Preliminary card to air live and free on SPIKE TV.
