Well it looks like there's no doom and gloom after all.

That's because UFC on Fuel TV 4 brought in some impressive numbers last Wednesday night (July 11, 2012) despite very little promotion and a midweek timeslot.

According to statistics released by the channel, UFC on Fuel TV 4 averaged 211,000 viewers with a peak of 289,000 at 10:45 p.m. ET.

Fuel TV executives were obviously pleased with the results. George Greenberg, the Exectuve Vice President and General Manager of Fuel TV weighed in:

"Live fights are a huge draw for Fuel TV. Audiences are also tuning-in for all the live pre- and post fight shows as well. UFC programming has been a ratings magnet for Fuel TV."

UFC on FUEL TV 4, which took place in San Jose, California, featured a bout between middleweight contenders Chris Wiedman and Mark Munoz. Wiedman remained undefeated with a dominant second round knockout in a bout where he was never even threatened.

Weidman called out UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva after his performance. We'll find out where he stands in the division after Hector Lombard faces Tim Boetsch at UFC 149 this Saturday night and once word comes out on whether Rashad Evans will actually drop down to 185 pounds.

Perhaps the event benefited from the fallout of UFC 148, one of the most anticipated and watched events in UFC history.

It will be interesting to see how the next UFC on Fuel TV 5 event, which features a heavyweight headliner between Stipe Miocic and Stefan Struve in Nottingham, England, fares.

What's your take on these numbers, Maniacs?
