    Decent numbers for a combat sport. Huge drop in numbers from the Kimbo-Dada card. Bellator can draw bigger numbers than the UFC but it has to have a niche, a gimmick, etc etc. Bellator has proven you dont have to have the best fights for ratings, you just have to have the biggest names and the best promotion.

    Also being on spike helps a lot, which has more average viewers than FS1.
