The ratings for the WEC’s debut on Versus this past Sunday are in.

The pre-recorded WrekCage show which came on at 8 p.m. ET drew a rating o 0.19 (189,000 viewers). The live two-hour telecast that began at 9 p.m. ET drew a 0.39 (416,000 viewers). The Tapout show at 11 p.m. ET recorded a 0.28 (286,000 viewers).

To give you some perspective, The Ultimate Fighter on Spike last week drew a 1.16 rating (1.6 million viewers). Also, the first game of the NHL Stanley Cup finals drew a 0.72 (523,000 viewers) on Versus.

The rating isn’t terrible but I’m sure Zuffa was hoping for a little better. But since the reviews for the first show was good, I think the ratings will grow over time.




it probably would have better rating if more people got versus. it is on digital cable in my area, and i have basic, so i cant watch it.

I was really impressed with the show. Hopefully more people will watch via word of mouth. However I think the fact it is on Versus is not going to help boost the ratings.
