Though the fight between Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson and former International Fight League champion Roy Nelson may have received criticism for the hype coming in compared to the product going out, it was a resounding success in one key aspect... television ratings.

Episode three of The Ultimate Fighter: The Heavyweights – featuring Kimbo’s first fight under the UFC banner – produced the highest numbers in Spike TV history in many key categories and vaulted into the Top 5 of the most-watched bouts in the history of televised mixed martial arts in the United States.

Not a surprise really. This easily could've been a Strikeforce Main Event or argueably a Fight Night main event.

No...in fact, unless you have a Nielsen box, then you don't affect it one way or the other.
