UFC & Bellator Head-To-Head Battle On Friday Night Draws Disappointing Ratings


The preliminary numbers are in for this past Friday’s head-to-head battle between UFC and Bellator.

UFC offered their UFC Fight Night 50 event on FOX Sports 1 and according to early estimates, from 10pm to midnight, the show did a 0.54 rating.

Bellator held their Bellator 123 event on Spike TV and from 8pm to a little bit after 10pm, the show did a 0.43 rating.

Based off of those numbers, it appears as though the head-to-head battle didn’t result in additional interest in a Friday fight night, as it looks like the two split the same audience that generally tunes in to a weekend fight show.
