KIMBO SLICE CONTINUES TO DRAW RECORD RATINGS FOR UFC

FAT GUY ROY NELSON LAYS ON KIMBO SLICE DURING THEIR FIGHT

The ratings are in and Kimbo Slice continues to set tv viewer records for the Spike TV UFC reality show “The Ultimate Fighter.” A total of 6.8 million viewers tuned in to TUF last Wednesday to watch the fight between Slice and Roy Nelson. Unfortunately, Slice ended up losing the fight thus theoretically being eliminated from this year’s TUF competition. However, the way UFC execs have been talking don’t count out another appearance on the show by Slice. After all, he’s ratings gold.

During the final 15 minutes of the Slice/Nelson fight, Spike TV drew an astronomical 7.86 share with men 18-34. That’s the highest ratings in the history of “The Ultimate Fighter” show. Hell, it’s the highest numbers in the history of the network. More people were watching that fight than CBS. UFC President Dana White called the numbers “beyond huge.” And, all of the people watching Wednesday’s fight are in the key youth demographic.

    I was a bit dissapointed with this fight. I wanted Kimbo to do a little better than he did but I think everyone knew his ground game was gonna be weak. He got a few good hits in but Nelson took him down and who get that guy off? Like you say, he is ratings gold so I hope he’s back at some point.
