Bellator Dynamite breaks attendance and live gate records but doesn't do as well in views

http://www.mmafighting.com/2015/9/22/9373157/bellator-does-800000-viewers-for-first-installment-of-dynamite

It averaged 800,000 and peaked at 914,000 viewers.Its a far cry from the millions they were hoping for.

I didnt think this would break ratings records but i thought it'd break a million.Perhaps thecard could have been stacked a bit more i agree especially the kickboxing bouts but i also think its still such a different concept it wasnt a turn on for everyone.

Personally i felt it was a good card and live it was incredible but i haven't watched the tv version,once i do i will give my opinion.

In the future i see them only getting better and hey the event still broke 2 records.

This is reason why they will not spend money on stars but put Kimbo-Shamrock and those.

It's a slow buildup, let's give them some time. To be fair this is the first big event that they put on.

Lets blame the kickboxing side of it!

We all know Bellator is a ratings winner but that kickboxing was just fucking pointless I bet viewers switched off not knowing what they were watching

p.s I love scott coker with all my heart ....he is god

Tito-Bonnar and Kimbo-Shamrock were considered big events.

Going forward they need to put on better kickboxing matches if they will continue to co promote with glory. Some better name fighters would be cool.

The kickboxing side sucked ass... Just a mess to have the event split like that

Just no need for watered down kickboxing. get rid of the ring.... most people were there for the MMA not paul daley vs some tomato can

The 4man tournament was good... they need to do a Welterweight or Middleweight some time

I wouldn't mind if they put on good kickboxing matches with the likes of

Badr hari
Ghita
Ghokan saki
Schilt
Feitosa
Sprong
And many more



Disclaimer: I don't know their status', so if they are retired, my bad.

It was the first dynamite event so we shall see how future events do.I think more big names next time will help mcgeary is a killer but not a huge star yet and is pretty mild mannered.

The peak was during the tournament the rest was a wash.I agree better kickboxing matches and better supporting mma fights will help.

This was historic either way.

Glory has some money problems most of those fighters are not in Glory
Hari is fighting in G.F.C and AKHMAT, Saki also in G.F.C, Schilt is retired, Feitosa is retired too, Spong is doing boxing and MMA. Ghita could been put on card!

Basically Glory is in serious trouble they lost most of big stars!

Overall the card could have been built better with more stars and kickboxing coulda did without Daley or the female fight.

I think its a good idea just wasnt executed perfectly,i actually thought the event should be longer but maybe thats just me.

Also ive been thinking since SAMURAI is in the game we may be in for a treat in the future,the first taste of that will be the card in japan on spike.

Bellator has lent out quite a few fighters and not just scrubs,im hoping this was part of building a solid working relationship and hoping the favor is returned on some big cards

All in all being there was much more exciting then the tv version but it was still a cool idea and was really good just think it needs fine tuning.
