The ratings are in for the latest Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) "Prelims" event, and let's just say there won't be any bubbly popped in the headquarters of the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion.

That's because the UFC 150: "Henderson vs. Edgar 2" undercard, which emanated from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, back on Aug. 11, 2012, averaged just 974,000 viewers for its FX Channel broadcast, according to a report from MMA Weekly.

That puts it seventh out of nine total events on the cable television network.

Of course, no one expected it to replicate the whopping 1.8 million viewers scored by last month's UFC 148: "Silva vs. Sonnen 2" preliminary card offering, and the UFC 150 "Prelims" special sits comfortably in between UFC 147 (969,000) and UFC 149 (1.0 million).
