This past weekend Bellator’s sixth season debuted on MTV2 and EPIX with Bellator 60. The sixth season debut netted an average of 169,000 viewers according to MMAJunkie.
The numbers were down from the season five average of 186,000. The numbers being down should not be much of a surprise as the card opened in competition with the new season of The Ultimate Fighter on FX and Viacom’s counter-programming of TUF on Spike TV.
Bellator 60 was headlined by Pat Curran’s devastating knockout of Joe Warren to earn the Bellator featherweight title. The card also kicked off the season six featherweight tournament.
