Saturday night’s Bellator 55 event drew an average of 168,000 viewers on MTV 2, just short of the average of 176,000 for the season so far.

Curiously the immediate replay showed an unusually steep dip, pulling in just a further 45,000 viewers.

This was the second week in a row in which the promotion had enjoyed little in the way of competition from other MMA promotions, but that will change again this weekend when they go up against UFC 137.
