Bellator 199 draws 453K on Paramount and another 152,000 on CMT

May 15, 2018

Bellator MMA 199 drew 453,00 viewers on the Paramount Network and another 152,000 on the CMT network for a total of 605,000 viewers on Saturday night per Nielsen via ShowBuzz Daily.

The event featured King Mo taking on Ryan Bader.  It took Bader 15 seconds to take care of Lawal in the first round to move on in the Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament.

The event drew 0.16 in the A18-49 demo on the Paramount Network.

Payout Perspective:

Similar to the UFC Prelims on FX, the ratings for Bellator seemed to be nullified due to the choices on Saturday.  We note that the Lomachenko fight on ESPN was the big winner of the night with over 1 million viewers in the 8pm ET time slot.  The Bellator ratings show that the viewership on both networks (Paramount and CMT) are barely reaching the viewership levels of the prior years when it was just on Spike.
