The Ultimate Fighter Live Ratings Hit New Low

It's been said from the very start that the UFC's move to Fox would have an adjustment period where fans would have to look for their favorite shows, and the ratings might suffer a bit. That makes sense in some cases, but not in the case of TUF Live, where ratings have steadily gone down since the show began on FX back in early march. The debut episode drew 1.3 million viewers. Last Friday's eleventh episode drew just 821,000. That's the lowest number in the history of The Ultimate Fighter.

The show featured two live fights and an added bonus where they announced who TUF coach Urijah Faber would be facing at UFC 148 after opposing coach Dominick Cruz had to bow out with an ACL tear. It turned out to be Renan Barao.

Dana White has stated in the past that he's happy with the TUF Live ratings, but they plan to shake things up for the next season. That definitely seems like a good idea at this point.
