Friday night’s Bellator 107 event was watched by an average of 683,000 viewers on Spike TV.
That marks a drop of 417,000 viewers from the season high Bellator experienced for their previous event, but still places it as the third most watched show of the season so far.
Bellator 107 was headlined by Cheick Kongo’s latest fight, and if your looking for a direct comparison, the last time he headlined at Bellator 102, 675,000 viewers tuned in.
So, despite the impressive last week for their most hyped show ever, Bellator weren’t able to retain a significant amount of those extra viewers and are pretty much back to the 600-700,000 range that’s been the status quo throughout the current season.
This Friday night’s event will be another chance for them to get above that 700,000 barrier however as Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson will be headlining in his debut against another former UFC fighter Joey Beltran.
‘Rampage’ is easily the biggest star to have ever fought in the Bellator cage, but having said that he is down on his luck after coming off three losses in the UFC, so it’ll be very interesting to see how much he can move the audience needle this weekend.
