Bellator got some good news this week as ratings for last Saturday's Bellator 58 garnered a season-high viewership of 269,000, more than twice the number of the week prior and matching their season high.
The show was headlined by Michael Chandler winning the Bellator 155-pound title from Eddie Alvarez in one of the year's best fights. It also featured quick finishes from Marlon Sandro and Middleweight Champion Hector Lombard, along with an exciting women's bout featuring Jessica Aguilar.
The replay numbers for the 9 PM EST airing even beat the season-low 129,000 viewers from Bellator 57, drawing another 160,000. The original airing was at 7 PM EST to avoid going head-to-head with UFC 139.
The 269,000 viewers match the October 1st Bellator 52 event which featured four heavyweight tournament quarterfinal bouts. Over 10 events this season, Bellator has averaged just over 178,000 viewers. Their final show is this Saturday with the heavyweight and bantamweight tournament finals.
