Bellator 107 took place on Friday night at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma and Cheick Kongo defeated Peter Graham by unanimous decision to win the season nine heavyweight tournament.
According to Nielsen sources, Bellator 107’s preliminary viewership landed at 683,000 total viewers and has since increased 14% to 782,000 total viewers thanks to the live+3 DVR numbers.
This increase now pushes Bellator over the 700,000 viewers mark in the live+3 (DVR) for the first time for a Friday show in over five-weeks. Safe to say, they needed this bump.
For more information on what this means and on Nielsen ratings in general, check out my article here.
As a reminder, this adjustments was due to the live + 3 (DVR) numbers which will be released every Tuesday. For those new to Nielsen ratings terminology, live + 3 is a equal to a total of live viewership plus 3 days worth of DVR usage.
