Bellator 82 TV Ratings Stay on the Mark with Season 7 Average


Bellator LogoThe Bellator 82 TV Ratings are in and they’re mostly in line with the better part of Season 7’s average of just over 165,000 viewers per episode.

Friday night’s Bellator 82, which took place in Michigan, drew an average of 156,000 viewers for its broadcast on MTV2. That is just below the season average, but not far off the mark.

Bellator 82 featured the Season 7 welterweight final between former champion Lyman Good and rocketing Russian talent Andrey Koreshkov. It was Koreshkov that took the honors, winning a unanimous decision and improving his unblemished record to 13-0.

Koreshkov will now challenge the winner of the upcoming Bellator welterweight title bout between champion Ben Askren and challenger Karl Amoussou.

Bellator is nearing the end of its seventh season and will be moving from MTV2 over to Spike TV in January 2013.

Bellator Season 7 TV Ratings:

Bellator 74: 190,000 viewers
Bellator 75: 145,000 viewers
Bellator 76: 175,000 viewers
Bellator 77: 149,000 viewers
