Strikeforce Scores Low 274,000 Viewers, Bellator Draws 235,000 for Sept. 10 Events

Josh BarnettRatings for this past Saturday’s Strikeforce and Bellator events were much closer than expected, as Strikeforce’s Heavyweight Grand Prix Semifinals event averaged just 274,000 viewers on Showtime and Bellator 49 drew 235,000 on MTV2, according to MMAjunkie.

The Strikeforce event, which featured semifinal wins by Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier, ranks as the second-worst ratings for the promotion’s major events on Showtime and well below its 453,000 average and the 741,000 and 624,000 that tuned in for the quarterfinal events earlier this year.
