    *groans* more bad trends and more bad ratings. what else is new? im BORED! cant wait for nov 15! cant wait for numbers to come in for UFC 180, WSOF 15, and bellator 131. the head to head to head so called “competition” peaks my interest!

    tired of the same old bellator friday night grave yard story. every friday bellator and spike lose their asses off….. BORING

    please, lets get to nov 15 and 2015 already

    Steady, but not good. The hope for Spike must have been that Bellator would grow to match or at least come close to the UFC’s popularity back in the day. That is not happening and not even trending in the right direction. I don’t see that Bellator will move it’s season on season average much higher than this. The key question is, is it good enough to keep the lights on?
