The ratings are in for Bellator 106, the mixed martial arts (MMA) event that went down last Saturday night (Nov. 2, 2013) on Spike TV from the Long Beach Arena in California, headlined by a lightweight title fight rematch pitting Michael Chandler against Eddie Alvarez (watch it again here).
And the numbers weren't just good, they were the promotion's best ever.
The telecast delivered 1.1 million viewers (9:00pm-12:45am), the most-watched in Bellator event history and the most watched mixed martial arts show on television this fall. The "Chandler-Alvarez II" fight card peaked at 1.4 million viewers at 11:17pm and reached its high mark with Men 18-49 with a 1.1 rating for the Alvarez-Chandler bout. The telecast also ranked #2 in cable in its timeslot with Men 18-49.
