TUF 10: Kimbo vs. Nelson, Tonight

September 30, 2009

Just a reminder that Spike TV will be airing what is probably the most highly anticipated fight in Ultimate Fighter history – Kimbo vs. Nelson – tonight at 10pm/9 cst.

There’s been a lot of talk in recent weeks about what kind of ratings Kimbo’s fight might do; most agree it’ll likely set the TUF record and hit the 3-3.5 rating range (4.5 to 5 million viewers).

Although during a promotional stop in NYC, Dana White even jumped into the fray predicting the episode will push 6 million viewers.

One of the reasons why you are in town is to promote Wednesday’s TUF fight between Kimbo Slice and Roy Nelson. Are you surprised by how much buzz this fight — as well as the whole season — has generated thus far?
We knew it was going to be big, we just didn’t know how big it was going to be. We did 5.1 million viewers the first week, 4.1 last week, and this Wednesday we think that we’re going to do more than both of those.


I heard you predicted 7 million viewers for this Wednesday’s show.
No, I’m predicting 6 million.


So, 7 million might be a little aggressive?
Dude, if we do 7 million … I’m not going to say anything. I already put my foot in my mouth at UFC 100.

Got something to say?
