Bellator Fighting Championships didn't fair well either in the ratings department this past weekend. Still in a battle with "TUF: Live" for Friday night viewership, Bellator 63, which featured the season six welterweight quarterfinals, averaged 140,000 viewers on MTV2.
Are the two sides taking viewers away from each other or the eyes just not there for the time slots, on a Friday night at that?
Meanwhile, Bellator 63 attracted an average of 140,000 viewers on MTV2, a decrease of 35,000 observers from last week’s Bellator 62, which posted a season-high 175,000 viewers. However, Bellator 63 still handily beat the season low of 108,000 viewers, set by Bellator 61 two weeks ago.
Featuring the Season 6 welterweight tournament quarterfinals, Bellator 63 saw Karl Amoussou, Ben Saunders, David Rickels and Bryan Baker advance to the semifinal round, which will be contested May 4 at Bellator 67 when Saunders faces Baker and Amoussou meets Rickels.
