    Bellator does 556,000 on usual TV channel Spike.

    In the UK on Channel 5, Bellator did 550,000.

    Similar figure in both countries which is pretty incredible when you consider thats about 320m population vs 65m population. The Spike UK prelims did 154,000 at its peak.

    Hopefully Viacom will pull their finger out of their ass now and actually show MMA events on the same day in the UK, even if it was on an hour tape delay.

    550k in the us isn't good.


    550 in the uk is solid I read. I hope they drop this tape delay shit. It's annoying as fuck.

    It's like they don't want to show it live because they think someone going to die so they want to censor it or something. BAMMA is also tape delayed whenever its on. Its completely bizarre. Like a early 2000's US TV attitude towards MMA.
