Spike TV's "UFC Prelims" special for UFC 139: "Henderson vs. Shogun" on Nov. 19, 2011, averaged 1.2 million viewers, up from 1.1 million viewers for UFC 137 back on Oct. 29 but still down from the 1.6 million it scored for the UFC 135: "Jones vs. Rampage" undercard offering back on Sept. 24.

The two-fight broadcast from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California, featured Ultimate fighter (TUF) 8 champion Ryan Bader getting back into the win column with a thunderous knockout over fellow wrestler Jason Brilz.

In addition, Michael McDonald made his presence felt in the UFC's crowded 135-pound division by beating the brakes off fellow bantamweight prospect Alex Soto.

"UFC Prelims" for Nov. 19 pulled in a 0.9 household rating, including a 1.10 in males 18-49 and a 1.1 in males 18-34.
