"The Ultimate Fighter 10" ratings slip; rebound likely in week three with Nelson vs. Kimbo

After crushing the single-episode and season-debut ratings for "The Ultimate Fighter" franchise with its Sept. 16 launch, "The Ultimate Fighter 10" saw a ratings slip in week two that results in a 29 percent drop.

The second episode, which aired Sept. 23, drew 2.9 million viewers and 2.2 household rating; an additional one million viewers tuned in for an immediate replay. It remains the second-most-watched episode in "TUF" history.

Despite the (expected) dip, "TUF 10" will likely reset the bar next week for the highly anticipated Roy Nelson vs. Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson fight, which is featured in week three of the series.

I'm not condoning the lack of cardio with most of these guys, but you do realize we are watching guys fight who don't go through a normal 8 week training camp right?That doesn't excuse them to not come on the show somewhat prepared, but still...

Compared to these other guys, yeah probably.Which is sad, but I think they should have enough to not embarrass themselves.

They really should have that fight as a headliner not on a TUF show

Maybe Rashad should get a t-shirt with a triple whopper on back of it made to help with Nelson's cardio.

Certainly not but I'd be surprised if it goes past the first round.

Yeah, but are we really expecting Kimbo and Roy to be the Cardio kings of TUF next week?

29% is a huge drop, but its still better than what the show wouldve done if TUF were Kimbo-less this season. will be interesting to see if they can hold larger-than-average ratings even after Kimbo is eliminated. i think so. congrats to the UFC on a succesful season.
