Fight Master Bellator MMA LogoBellator’s reality series, Fight Master: Bellator MMA debuted with less than stellar TV ratings in its first episode but has seen a marked increase in viewership.

The premier drew 432,000 viewers while the second episode improved to 545,000 viewers.  After a week off, the reality series returned with its third episode on Wednesday with 676,000 viewers.

Fight Master: Bellator MMA is similar to its Spike TV predecessor, The Ultimate Fighter, but has a slightly different twist to how the teams are divvied up. Much like the singing competition The Voice the participants select their teams instead of being chosen by the coaches.

The show started with 32 welterweight athletes that pair off, trying to fight their way onto the show. The winners of the fights gain the opportunity to select from one of four coaches.

Much like The Voice, the coaches jockey for position, trying to sway fighters into selecting their respective teams.

The coaches for this inaugural season are former UFC championsRandy Couture and Frank Shamrock, elite coach Greg Jackson, and former Bellator champion Joe Warren.

Fighter Master airs weekly on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET on Spike TV.
