Bellator 148 draws 566,000 viewers

February 1, 2016

Bellator MMA 148 drew 566,000 viewers on Friday night according to Sports TV Ratings.  The event is off approximately 18% from the last Bellator event this past December.

The event on Friday featured Paul Daley in his first round KO of Andy Uhrich.  His quick work sets up his fight with Josh Koscheck nicely.

Bellator 148 – 566,000 viewers

In other ratings, the UFC Weigh-Ins for UFC on Fox 18 which aired from 7-8pm ET drew 156,000 viewers according to Sports TV Ratings.

Payout Perspective:

Bellator actually did better in ratings than any live cable sports programming on Friday outside of the Australian Open Women’s Final on ESPN.  It outdid the X Games on ESPN which drew 544,000 viewers.  Notably, the X Games was a 4-hour block which started at 7:00pm and went until 11:00pm.  The ratings are below 2015 levels as last year averaged approximately 749,000 viewers.  Of course, this is just one event with a big tentpole event due in a couple weeks.
