Bellator 174 this past Friday on Spike TV drew 755,000 viewers and peaked at 1.1 million viewers according to Nielsen. The ratings reflect the adjust DVR+3 ratings.
The overnight rating drew 686,000 viewers and 255,000 in the adult 18-49 demo per Sports TV Ratings. The event featured the inaugural women’s featherweight title bout as Julia Budd defeated Marloes Coenen. Budd is now champion and Coenen, a women’s MMA pioneer, decided to retire after the fight.
Not big numbers here as the card did not have any big names. However, to get the peak over 1 million viewers is still a testament to the fact that Bellator continues to garner a core audience.
