Bellator 110′s “Rampage” Jackson-Christian M’Pumbu Bout Draws Over 1 Million Viewers
By FCF Staff
“Rampage” Jackson is unquestionably one of Bellator’s biggest names, and the former UFC champ’s bout with Christian M’Pumbu Friday night drew over one million viewers.
According to a press release sent out by the promotion’s broadcasting partner SPIKE, 1.1 million people tuned in to watch Jackson battle M’Pumbu. The light-heavyweight quickly stopped M’Pumbu with a flurry of ground-and-pound punches, and advanced to the tourney finals.
“King Mo” Lawal worked his way to a UD win over Mikhail Zayats in the other light-heavyweight semifinal and will fight Jackson in the coming months.
Bellator 110, which went down in Uncasville, Connecticut, averaged880,000 viewers. In addition, the card’s television audience was up +99% in Persons 18-49, +81% in Men 18-49, and +54% Men 18-34 compared to the Season 9 premiere in August, 2013.
Those numbers reportedly do not reflect DVR figures which are expected later this week.
