Bellator 80 and 81 TV Ratings Remain at a Low Ebb


Bellator LogoThe Bellator TV ratings for their two most recent events were nearly identical, but unfortunately a little on the low side.

Bellator 80 pulled in 148,000 viewers, while Bellator 81 did 149,000, according to MMAWeekly.com’s industry sources.

That’s barely above the Season 7 low point of 145,000 for Bellator 75, and well below the high of 222,000 for Bellator 79.

Bellator 81 took place on Friday, Nov. 16, at the Ryan Center in Kingston, Rhode Island. Marcin Held and Dave Jansen won their lightweight tournament semifinal bouts, and will now face each other in the finals.
