UFC Fight for the Troops Pulls in Strong Rating

UFC Fight for the Troops averaged 2 million viewers and a 1.43 household rating on Wednesday night, according to MMA Junkie:

Wednesday's Spike TV broadcast of the "UFC Fight Night 16: UFC Fight for the Troops" event drew a 1.43 household rating and averaged two millions viewers during its three-hour run.

Spike TV today announced the ratings details for the Dec. 10 broadcast.

The event, which served as a night-long fundraiser for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, drew more viewers in the key men 18-49 demographic (961,000) than ESPN's broadcast of an NBA game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers (893,000).

The number is particularly strong considering the fact that the show had little to no star power on it.  The last 3 hour Fight Night was in April 2008, on a loaded card headlined by Kenny Florian and Joe Lauzon.  That card only drew a 1.1.
