Bellator 102 took place last Friday night and drew an average of 675,000 viewers on Spike TV.
That’s up 26,000 viewers from the previous week’s event and is the second highest audience of the season, with the 700,000 viewers delivered by Bellator 100 still remaining the high-water mark.
The show also produced a peak of 958,000 viewers during the main event between Cheick Kongo and Mark Godbeer.
The ratings have remained fairly steady for Bellator since the move to Friday night’s after the season premiere, with 650-700,000 viewers tuning in consistently each week.
While these are not numbers to get overly excited about, it’s at least a relatively stable platform with which to build upon and it’ll be interesting to see if they can make any significant gains in the remainder of the season.
