The success of UFC "Prelims" became unrelenting since they started airing teasers. And unlike many others, last weekend's UFC 119 Prelims made an exception. Peaking at 8th spot on Spike TV's 10 Best Watched UFC Prelims.

The ratings for last weekend’s UFC 119 “UFC Prelims” special were slightly up and on its peak with 1.36 million viewers. The Sept. 25 broadcast earned a 0.9 household rating and averaged 1.3 million viewers on Spike TV.

The fights were done by C.B. Dollaway’s submission victory over middleweight Joe Doerksen and heavyweight Matt Mitrione’s decision victory with Joey Beltran.

Spike TV’s “UFC Prelims” broadcast, which was tagged along with August’s UFC 118 in Boston, scored a low 1.1 million viewers only. Out of the 11 “UFC Prelims” that were aired since their debut in September 2009, UFC 119’s tied for sixth best viewed.

The UFC offered first a PPV teaser broadcast for UFC 103, when the UFC went big with a boxing PPV simulcast featuring Floyd Mayweather vs. Juan Manuel Marquez. The specials were proven and tested to be that effective at generating last-minute PPV sale. This made the officials from the UFC and the organization’s cable partner for a long time to make it a regular offering.

The full list of “UFC Prelims” broadcasts and ratings includes:

1. UFC 109 (February 2010): 1.7 million viewers
