Bellator 200 peaked with 804,000 viewers

June 1, 2018

Bellator 200 peaked with 804,000 viewers on The Paramount Network according to Nielsen.  The event drew 500,000 viewers in DVR +3 ratings.

Bellator 200 was tape delayed this past Friday on The Paramount Network.  The event was headlined by Gegard Mousasi as he captured the middleweight title from Raphael Carvalho.

The additional viewership reflects a 16% increase from the Live + SD rating of 421,000 viewers.

Payout Perspective:

I am a bit surprised that the DVR numbers did not increase the overall viewership more.  This could be a condition of the tape delay and the knowledge of the results prior to the event airing on Paramount.  For an event that was to be a milestone for the company, viewers treated like an ordinary Bellator event.
