Report: Bellator 110 averages 850,000 viewers

Bellator 110 kicked off Bellator’s season 10 with a bang. Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson sealed his ticket to the Light Heavyweight tournament finals by knocking out Christian M’Pumbu in the first round. Earlier in the night, King Mo booked his spot in the tournament final by defeating Mikhail Zayats by unanimous decision. To top off the night, Mo and Rampage had a controversial in cage scuffle that caused major uproar in the MMA community.

According to reports, Bellator 110 averaged 850,000 viewers:

During the main event, which was the Light Heavyweight tournament semi-final, Bellator racked in 1.1 Million viewers:

 

These are great numbers to start the season for Bellator, and shows that the Rampage Jackson signing has worked. Clearly Rampage is still a big draw, and his refound ability to knock opponents out has certainly paid dividends. Expect the King Mo vs Rampage Jackson tournament final as the co-main event of Bellator’s first pay per view. With the right promotion and card, Bellator can pull in nice numbers.

Check out this poignant tweet from Mookie Alexander:

If you recall, Rampage said last week that Bellator is getting better ratings than the UFC. It will be interesting to see how Bellator’s numbers fluctuate throughout the season.
