Spike TV's "UFC Prelims" special for UFC 130: "Rampage vs. Hamill" on May 28, 2011, averaged 1.3 million viewers, down from the 1.5 million it scored for the UFC 129: "St. Pierre vs. Shields" undercard offering back on March 19.

The two-fight broadcast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, featured bantamweight "Mighty Mouse" Demetrious Johnson outpointing former WEC 135-pound champion Miguel Torres.

Also making some noise on free TV was a leaner and meaner Tim Boetsch, who knocked around fellow middleweight Kendall Grove for three rounds to earn the unanimous decision win.

"UFC Prelims" for May 28 pulled in a 0.9 household rating including a 1.03 in both Men 18-49 and Men 18-34.

UFC 130: "Rampage vs. Hamill" featured former light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson securing a three round unanimous decision win over division stalwart Matt "The Hammer" Hamill.

But that's not all.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir got back into the 265-pound title hunt with a 15-minute beatdown of Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 champion Roy "Big Country" Nelson.

And what else is there to say about the performance of Brian Stann?
