The ratings are in for the UFC 118 Prelims special on Spike and they are the lowest they've ever been. The one hour special that featured three fights before leading into the PPV garnered a 0.83 rating for 1.1 million viewers. The numbers are interesting in that, the show started with an initial audience of 1.2 million viewers and each quarter hour the numbers declined more and more before plateauing at 1.0. The night started with the Andre Winner-Nik Lentz tilt that was supposed to feature the startling knockout power of Winner but instead gave us three rounds of Lentz holding Winner against the cage. That style really does kill the audience. It's a shame too because Joe Lauzon put in a jaw-dropping performance against Gabe Reudigar directly after and Dan Miller was also highly entertaining. Here is the full list of ratings for each Prelims special so far: 1. UFC 109 (February 2010): 1.7 million viewers 2. UFC 114 (May 2010): 1.6 million viewers 3. UFC 108 (January 2010): 1.5 million viewers 4. UFC 104 (October 2009): 1.4 million viewers 5. UFC 103 (September 2009): 1.4 million viewers 6. UFC 116 (July 2010): 1.3 million viewers 7. UFC 115 (June 2010): 1.3 million viewers 8. UFC 106 (November 2009): 1.3 million viewers 9. UFC 111 (March 2010): 1.2 million viewers 10. UFC 118 (August 2010): 1.1 million viewers Source
