Bellator 204 peaked with Gallagher fight with 699K viewers on Paramount

August 22, 2018

Bellator 204 peaked for the James Gallagher-Ricky Bandejas fight with 699,000 viewers  on Paramount according to Nielsen.  The event drew 413,000 in DVR + 3 ratings.

The event drew 319,000 viewers in Live + SD ratings on Friday night.  The event featured Darrion Caldwell as he defeated Noad Lahat.  Gallagher was a top prospect and patterned himself after Conor McGregor.  But, he ran into Ricky Bandejas who scored the upset over Gallagher.

Payout Perspective:

The peak occurred prior to featured main event which reflects the interest in Gallgher as he is a McGregor disciple.  The ratings reflect a decline in viewership from the previous weeks which may be a concern.
