Saturday’s TUF 17 Finale in Las Vegas, Nevada, which featured Kelvin Gastelum defeating Uriah Hall by split decision to win the program’s latest season, pulled series high ratings for FX.

According to a press release sent out by the FOX property, the TUF 17 Finale broadcast drew 1.71 million viewers and 1.16 million adults aged 18-49, which marked series highs for FX.  The card’s broadcast was the most watched program for men aged 18-34 on television that night.

The only program that was watched by more males, aged 18-49, was a NASCAR broadcast on FOX.

The April 13th card also featured perennial bantamweight contender Urijah Faber submitting Scott Jorgensen, as well as Cat Zingano stopping Miesha Tate, to determine who will coach opposite Ronda Rousey in TUF 18.
