my dad is a casual fan who watches fox sports 1 all the time. Today he told me he doesnt care about this PPV because the PPV's have sucked lately and he hasnt seen a good fight. He only watches what the UFC shows him and never goes on the internet.

I wouldn't argue that MMA has peaked because I agree but to be fair like I said all combat sports have either peaked or don't have main stream appeal at all.

I think all combat sports are niche sports. No matter what the UFC envisioned, MMA (along with kickboxing and boxing to a degree) will never be on par with baseball, football, basketball, hockey, and soccer. There's just people out there that aren't into the concept of two opponents fighting and trying to knock their opponent out.

averaged the last 7 Bjorn shows and the first 7 Coker shows (counting 131 as first Coker show).

124: 771,000
125: 742,000
126: 656,000

135: 607,000
136: 655,000
137: 594,000
------
Bjorn:664,286
Coker Non-Tentpole: 637,600
Coker Tentpole Only:1,056,000
Coker:757,143

Under Coker non-tentpole ratings are down 4%. Overall ratings are up 14%.

So far so good. The first tentpole was epic and the second one also pulled great numbers though not the same as the first.

The real test is the upcoming Tentpole.

Yeah I believe the Bellator ship is floating pretty good but they need to make some HW Grand Prix a la Strikeforce to get to the next level. Some co-promotion with the biggest european and asian promotions would also help.

Los Angeles, CA (February 25, 2015) -- Multimedia entertainment studio Electus, an operating business of IAC (NASDAQ: IACI) today announces that Electus International has secured new deals for Bellator MMA with broadcasters in Australia (Network Ten), France (RTL9), Italy (Discovery), Spain (15 TV), Portugal (SIC) and Croatia (Fight Channel), exemplifying the widespread growth the emerging mixed martial arts (MMA) league has shown since appointing veteran fight promoter Scott Coker as Bellator president in June 2014.

Electus International has also renewed deals with broadcasters in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong (Celestial Tiger Entertainment), Israel (Ananey) and Poland (NC+). Bellator continues its partnerships in Latin America (Fox Sports), Brazil (Esporte), Russia (R2), the Middle East (OSN) and New Zealand (Sky Networks).

Bellator MMA can now be seen in over 400 million homes worldwide in over 120 countries, further growing the promotion globally.

"Bellator has made record-breaking strides, establishing itself as an elite MMA promotion with an expansive global audience and we're thrilled to bring it to viewers and fans worldwide" said John Pollak, President of Electus International.

In November 2014, Bellator 131, the first major event under Coker, smashed rating records during its broadcast for Spike TV. The main event between Tito Ortiz and Stephan Bonnar delivered 2.2 million viewers, making it the most-watched MMA fight on cable in 2014. Bellator 131 was also the highest-rated Bellator event in league history.

Bellator is ufc junior.

If they provided an alternative to the ufc I would be cheering them on. They dont provide an alternative though.

They are another run of the mill American cage brawling company with unified rules. Putting out garbage main events on their biggest shows like Kimbo vs. Ken Shamrock.

They represent what is wrong with mma.

You are an mma hipster peretti.....sad Sad

Bellator is a different version they make fights intended to produce finishes,they give sponsorship freedom,they have entrances and different cage,patented their own gloves that help the fighters stay healthy and reduce eye pokes,but nost important they are RIVALS to zuffa.

If you don't support literally the only org heading up the opposition to zuffa.....wtf are you doing?

MMA is dead.

This PBC shit sort of rubs me the wrong way also.

They're looking to take over boxing and it just seems douchey. The Spike broadcast today was just awful.

And now they axed Friday Night Fights in favor of monthly PBC shows? Truly WHAT THE FUCK is all I can say.

At least its still boxing and not cage humping.

spike tv is trash. they ruin every combat/sporting event they get their hands on TNA, Bellator, UFC, Boxing, Glory.

I miss the days of when strikeforce was on showtime...now that was a good production

Unified Rules are an athletic commission thing, I don't think Bellator can get around them.
