Spike TV's "UFC Prelims" special for UFC 135: "Jones vs. Rampage" on Sept. 24, 2011, averaged 1.6 million viewers, up from the 1.3 million it scored for the UFC 134: "Silva vs. Okami 2" undercard offering back on Aug. 27.

The two-fight broadcast from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, featured Anthony Ferguson continuing his success since winning The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 with a jaw-breaking stoppage win over Aaron Riley.

Tim Boestch also notched another victory at middleweight, utilizing his self-proclaimed redneck judo to man slam his way past Nick Ring.

"UFC Prelims" for Sept. 24 pulled in a 1.1 household rating, including a 1.4 in males 18-49 and a 1.7 in males 18-34.

UFC 135: "Jones vs. Rampage" featured a main event of Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones continuing his dominance over the rest of the division by becoming just the second man to submit Quinton Jackson in a mixed martial arts fight.

Rashad Evans is next.

Josh Koscheck wanted to let the world know he's still got some fight in him after getting his face caved in by Georges St. Pierre and he did just that by knocking out legendary former champion Matt Hughes in the first round.

And don't forget about Nate Diaz making the 209 proud by punking Takanori Gomi in every way imaginable.
