May 10, 2018

The Ultimate Fighter 27 Episode 4 on FS1 drew 207,000 viewers according to Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.

The event drew 0.10 in the A18-49 demo.

The fight of the show featured Bryce Mitchell as he took on Jay Cucciniello.  Mitchell defeated Cucciniello by unanimous decision.  Also on the show, the cameras followed Luis Pena as he faced a potential issue with ending his stint on the show.  It was revealed that Pena would have to pull out of his chance to be The Ultimate Fighter due to a fractured foot.

Payout Perspective:

The telecast did slightly better than the season debut which does not say much in terms of ratings.  Last year, TUF 25 drew 348,000 viewers for its fourth episode.  TUF 26 drew 261,000 viewers for episode 4.  Thus far, live viewership is taking a hit this season.  If there is some excuse, Game 5 of the Philadelphia-Boston series occurred at the same time on TNT and drew nearly 6 million viewers.
