Bellator 174 peaks at 1.1M viewers

March 8, 2017

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.

Payout Perspective:

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.

    I agree Wil. For just another average Friday night line-up to be breaking 1M is pretty solid. And sustainable (I’m guessing).

    Yup and they did that with minimal overhead unlike PBC.

    And of course the mental patient cannot just speak on bellator without bringing up his obsessive hatred for boxing. Kid, get it together.

Got something to say?
