Bellator 69 Draws Season-High 209,000 Viewers on MTV2



Bellator Fighting Championships posted a season high in the ratings department last Friday night, averaging 209,000 viewers for its Bellator 69 broadcast on MTV2.

The figure tops the previous high of 175,000 viewers set last month by Bellator 64. Sherdog.com confirmed the figure Tuesday with an industry source.

Bellator 69 took place at L’Auberge du Lac Casino in Lake Charles, La., and was headlined by a middleweight tournament final between Maiquel Falcao and Andreas Spang. Falcao snatched a unanimous decision from the Swede to earn a shot at the vacant 185-pound title against two-time tournament champion Alexander Shlemenko.

A welterweight semifinal pitting Karl Amoussou against David Rickels was also featured during the MTV2 broadcast, as Amoussou narrowly advanced to the Season 6 finals by earning a split decision over “The Caveman.” Amoussou will lock horns with Bryan Baker this summer to decide who will next challenge welterweight kingpin Ben Askren.

Rounding out the televised portion of the card was a women’s strawweight affair between Megumi Fujii and Jessica Aguilar, as well as a heavyweight collision showcasing Abe Wagner and Mark Holata. Aguilar handed “Mega Megu” just her second career defeat in a unanimous judges’ verdict, while Holata forced Wagner to submit to an Achilles lock in 2:24.
