Episode four of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15: "Live" this past Friday night (March 30, 2012) averaged about 1.1 million viewers on the FX channel, according to MMAWeekly.com.
That's less than last week (1.2 million) and nowhere near the high-water mark (1.3 million) set by the debut episode back on March 9. It would seem excitement ran high but has ultimately faded away and we're back to the same old, same old.
In episode four, supposed favorite Myles Jury failed to put his game plan to good use against top pick for Team Urijah Faber, Al Iaquinta, and was bounced from the competition after three grueling rounds. The win put Faber's squad back in control and finally gave "The California Kid" something to write home about.
The next installment of TUF 15: "Live," episode five, is scheduled to take place this Friday night (April 6, 2012), beginning at 10 p.m. ET on FX. The fight Faber ultimately chose was Michael Chiesa, who just lost his father not long ago, taking on Jeremy Larson. The staredown was nasty and the fight should be too.
