Bellator 155 peaks at 916,000 viewers

May 25, 2016

Bellator 155 last Friday peaked at 916,000 viewers per Nielsen.  The main event between Rafael Carvahlho and Melvin Manhoef averaged 812,000 viewers.

The overall event, factoring in the adjusted numbers, came to 715,000 viewers and was the second most-watched live sporting event on last Friday.

Peak viewership for last 3 Bellators

Bellator 153: Henderson-Koreshkov 1.1M viewers

Bellator 154: Davis-King Mo 1.3M viewers

Bellator 155: Carvahlho-Manhoef 916,000 viewers

Payout Perspective:

Bellator 155 was not the best of cards and yet it did pretty well in the ratings.  Comparing the peak viewership, it is slightly off the last couple Bellator events.  But, those ratings included known fighters in those main events.  While Manhoef might be a fighter you might know, it’s not someone you would usually see in a main event.
