A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats?

The rating for the TUF Finale is in, and it's 1.8, with 2.5 million viewers.  This is an excellent number.  The season 5 finale did a 2.0, but it had Pulver/Penn which was built all season, and had a hell of a lot more hype than Huerta/Guida.

The show did the best numbers during the Mayweather fight.  This is further evidence confirming that boxing and UFC aren't really in competition, they are going after two different fan bases for the most part.  

It's unfortunate though that with such a good rating the UFC did such a poor job promoting the mega card on December 29.
