Episode three of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15: "Live" this past Friday night (March 23, 2012) averaged about 1.2 million viewers on the FX channel, according to Sherdog.com.

That's an improvement from last week (1.1 million), however, still not the high-water mark (1.3 million) that the debut episode set a fortnight ago, featuring 32 fighters and 16 live, one-round elimination fights to earn a spot in the TUF house.

In episode three, Dominick Cruz-coached Justin Lawrence put his stamp on Urijah Faber-coached Cristiano Marcello with a knockout in round two. Faber was warning his Brazilian pupil throughout the Lightweight fight to keep his "chin down," but something was clearly lost in translation.

The next installment of TUF 15: "Live," episode four, is scheduled to take place this Friday night (March 30, 2012), beginning at 10 p.m. ET on FX. "Team Cruz" has gotten off to a strong start and is currently undefeated (2-0), meaning that the pressure is on Al Iaquinta to take out "Team Faber's" Myles Jury this weekend.
