Saturday afternoon’s Bellator 176 draws 438,000 viewers

April 12, 2017

Bellator MMA drew 438,000 viewers on Saturday afternoon per Sports TV Ratings.  The promotion aired the event from Italy live instead of tape delay.

The telecast drew 198,000 viewers in the Adult 18-49 demo according to Sports TV Ratings.  The event featured Melvin Manhoef versus Rafael Carvalho.  The Brazilian Carvalho won via TKO.

Payout Perspective:

Probably a good idea for Bellator to avoid UFC programming but a Saturday afternoon spot without any real fighter of notoriety on the card results in this rating.  With The Masters and baseball on during the day, this event could have got lost in the shuffle.

Got something to say?
