Bellator MMA put the finishing touches on 2016 last Friday night with Bellator 169 from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
Despite the card airing via tape-delay on Spike, it still generated solid ratings numbers, according to a release from the network.
The ratings for the show included 699,000 viewers with a peak of 965,000, making it the most watched of the international Bellator MMA cards to date.
Bellator 169 included a main event that saw Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal defeat former Olympic gold medalist Satoshi Ishii. Also, James Gallagher earned a win in the co-main event over Anthony Taylor.
Sinead Kavanagh made her promotional debut with a decision win over Elina Kallionidou, Daniel Weichel secured his position as No. 1 featherweight contender with a first round submission vs. Brian Moore and Cameron Else finished Dylan Tuke in just 20 seconds.
