Two live fights and the announcement of Urijah Faber's UFC 148 replacement opponent weren't enough to prevent the latest episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Live from earning the lowest ratings in the show's history.
MMAWeekly reports that last week's episode pulled in only 821,000 viewers, with viewership dropping below the 900,000 mark (previous season of TUF never fell below the one million mark) for the first time in the show's history and keeping up a trend of low ratings this season.
Episode eleven of TUF: Live featured the final two quarter-final bouts of this season, as well as the revelation that Renan Barao will be fighting Urijah Faber for the UFC interim bantamweight title at UFC 148 this July, replacing the injured Dominick Cruz.
