Episode 7 of “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 16 averaged 676,000 viewers during its Friday night broadcast on FX, and Bellator 78 earned 154,000 observers the same night on MTV2.

Sherdog.com confirmed the numbers on Tuesday with an industry source. The “TUF” viewership figure marks the second-worst showing of Season 16, surpassing only the 624,000 observers that tuned in two weeks ago. The figure also represents a downturn when compared to last week’s Episode 6, which pulled 811,000 observers. The “TUF 16” season high was set in week four, with 1.1 million viewers.

The seventh episode of Season 16 saw Team Nelson’s Michael Hill take a curious split decision over Team Carwin’s Matt Secor, despite Secor putting forth a strong effort in the second frame of their two-round exhibition bout. Nevertheless, the team score now stands at three victories apiece.

Meanwhile, Bellator’s 154,000 viewers represent a slight increase from last week’s Bellator 77, which attracted 149,000. Now five shows into its seventh iteration, Bellator set its season high during the Sept. 28 premiere, as Bellator 74 earned 190,000 viewers on MTV2.

Bellator 78 took place at the Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio, and was highlighted by the Season 7 welterweight tournament semifinals. Lyman Good and Andrey Koreshkov will square off for a guaranteed title shot after taking out Michail Tsarev and Marius Zaromskis, respectively.
