The ratings for Saturday's UFC 105 broadcast on Spike have been released. The event did a 1.9 rating and 2.9 million total viewers with a peak of 3.7 million for the Brandon Vera-Randy Couture main event. Although it drew fewer total viewers than Strikeforce on CBS the week before Spike did note that UFC beat SF in virtually all the key men demos.

Of course it's going to draw fewer numbers. CBS is available in A LOT more homes than Spike.

It was a fairly weak card IMO and the truth is, who doesn't have cable? Seriously, the statistics are that over 90% of people have cable and the people who don't---probably don't watch fights. Spike got trounced. That's okay though, UFC is the big brand and they'll be back soon.

You'd be surprised. There are lots of people living in Bumblef*ck, USA that don't have access to it.
