Payout Perspective:

Rampage-King Mo did not seem to evoke the spark you would anticipate however according to Nielsen, the main event drew 1.2 million viewers.  While 907,000 viewers is a nice bump from the general Bellator events, it may show that Jackson is no longer the draw that Bellator would hope it shows that Jackson can still draw.  Likely not helpful that in an ESPN interview hyping the fight he stated he regrets ever starting MMA.  But, based on the information coming in about the ratings, his comments may not have mattered.  MMA Payout will have more on the ratings tomorrow.
