Based on reports, 2 million viewers watched Anthony Pettis on MTV’s “World of Jenks.”
According to MMAJunkie.com, the number above represents Monday’s debut at 10PM ET/PT, as well as the same-night replay at 11PM ET/PT. Furthermore, their sources indicated that well over 2.3 million viewers in total have watched the half-hour episode courtesy of the MTV’s never ending reality replays.
“I grew up watching MTV and never thought I’d get the chance to be on one of their shows,” Pettis said of the unforgettable opportunity. “It was an absolute honor to work with Andrew and the staff at MTV. I hope fight fans tune in to see Jenks join me in the days leading up to my fight with Castillo.”
Not only did “Showtime” get his face plastered on television sets across the country, but he was also rewarded with a title fight against champ Ben Henderson just hours before the episode aired. The lightweights will do battle at WEC 53 in December.
