In what came as little surprise since it was announced that the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights drew the highest rating in the program’s history, last evening’s episode featuring a bout between Roy Nelson and Kimbo Slice surpassed all previous records in the successful cable channel’s six year history.

In total the broadcast drew a household rating of 3.7, with 5.3 million total viewers.

A total of 6.1 million viewers tuned in at one point during the episode, making it the highest rated UFC program in the history of Spike TV, trumping the previous record of 5.9 million viewers during the main event between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Dan Henderson at UFC 75 back in September of 2007.
