Bellator 87 PosterThe ratings for the third Bellator show on Spike TV have been returned, and while the numbers are down slightly, the promotion still reached highs in one particularly strong category.

Industry sources confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that Bellator 87 averaged 705,000 viewers over the two hour broadcast on Thursday night.

The re-broadcast at 12 midnight pulled in additional 323,000 viewers, with the totals for both shows at 1.028 million viewers.

Now the 705,000 viewer mark is down from the first and second shows on Spike TV, but overall not a dramatic drop considering this card featured no title fights and also had a late change to the main event when lightweight Patricky “Pitbull” Freire was forced out of his scheduled bout.

One mark that bodes well for Bellator are the ratings in the coveted 18-34 male demographic where the reached a .6 rating, which is the highest for the promotion since moving to Spike TV three weeks ago.

Overall through 3 shows on Spike TV, Bellator has averages 858,000 viewers thus far.
