The fight of the telecast saw Justin Frazier stop Michel Batista to move on to the heavyweight finals.  The telecast also showed the ongoing saga with Maurice Greene’s drinking problems in the house.

Payout Perspective:

This series is becoming more of DVR show that something that people watch live.  The 119,000 viewers is a big drop from the week prior.  One would think that the show ratings would ramp going into the finals but that has not been the case.
