The audience for
Bellator 181 peaked when the action was the bloodiest.
According to a release from Spike, last Friday’s card averaged
775,000 viewers (+3 DVR) and peaked at 912,000 for the trilogy bout
Campos and Brandon
Girtz in the evening’s headliner.
Campos and Girtz engaged in a wild slugfest for two rounds at the
Winstar Resort in Thackerville, Okla., but the contest was halted
due to a massive gash on Girtz’s forehead after the second stanza.
Campos was then awarded a technical knockout victory in one of the
most entertaining fights of 2017 thus far.
All told, the entire Bellator 181 broadcast attracted 573,000
viewers to Spike for a card that also saw rising middleweight
contender John Salter
Grove with a rear-naked choke 4:37 into the opening stanza in
the co-main event.
