Bellator 122: 582,000 viewers

July 29, 2014

MMA Payout has learned from a Nielsen source that Friday night’s Bellator MMA Summer Series on Spike TV drew an average viewership of 582,000 total viewers.  The peak for Bellator 122 occurred during the co-main event of Brandon Halsey defeating Brett Cooper which drew 807,000 viewers.

The overnight rating is down from last Friday’s re-air of Bellator’s May PPV.

Summer Series

Bellator 120 replay

07/18/14 – Bellator 120 replay:  890,000 viewers, 1.334,000 peak

Payout Perspective:

For those wondering, the Live+3 Day ratings for last week’s PPV re-air was 944,000 viewers with a peak at 1,418,000.  Last Friday’s Bellator 122 was not remarkable and actually ended early with Spike showing a Glory fight to fill in the last 10-15 minutes of the show.  If you were wondering, last year’s July Summer Series show drew 679,000 viewers although that show included Michael Chandler and Ben Askren.

    they showed a glory fight because they had space to fill? why not a bellator prelim bout? ive got NO faith in these mother fuckers running an MMA organization.

    “hey, lets confuse the viewer and show a fucking kick boxing match at the tail end of our MMA production! YAY, this is going t work out just fine!” *bunch of stiff suits hi five each other*

    NO FAITH! theyll be gone by 2016

    There is a strong rumour Spike is planning to mix up Bellator and Glory in some way. A yearly cross-over event and multiple fighter-exchanges are the most likely scenario’s.

    I think it will be hard to mix MMA and kickboxing on a frequent base in some sort of an event (not to mention: Bellator is in an oktagon, Glory is in a ring) but maybe a NYE-show with a Japanese flavour could accentuate the partnership.

Got something to say?
