Spike TV Sets Series Record For “UFC 109 Prelims”

Spike TV has just announced that this weekend’s one-hour UFC Prelim broadcast for UFC 109: Relentless garnered a series-high 1.7 million viewers.

The free lead-in show featured two preliminary bouts – Melvin Guillard’s impressive unanimous decision victory over Ronys Torres and The Ultimate Fighter 6 winner Mac Danzig’s win over Justin Buchholz – was aired live just before the night’s pay-per-view telecast.

UFC 109’s UFC Prelim broadcast was the second of 10 shows the UFC and Spike TV have planned for 2010. The latest edition just edged its predecessor, UFC 108 which captured 1.5 million viewers, for the top spot.
