Bellator 78 PosterFive events into its seventh season and Bellator seems to have hit a fairly consistent groove in its TV ratings on MTV2.

Friday night’s Bellator 78 drew an average of 154,000 viewers, according to MMAWeekly.com’s industry sources.

Season 7 has ranged from a high of 190,000 viewers for Bellator 74, the season’s premier, down to 145,000 for Bellator 75.

Bellator 78 featured the semifinals of this season’s welterweight tournament with former champion Lyman Good and undefeated Russian fighter Andrey Koreshkov winning and now set to square off in the finals.

Following season 7, Bellator moves from MTV2 over to the greater reach and more MMA friendly Spike TV in January 2013.

Bellator 74: 190,000 viewers
Bellator 75: 145,000 viewers
Bellator 76: 175,000 viewers
