Bellator 175 ratings for the Quinton Jackson vs. Muhammed Lawal-led mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Friday night (March 31, 2017) from inside Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois (results here), returned the promotion’s second-best numbers of the year for Spike TV.

To the tune of 909,000 viewers with a peak exceeding 1.3 million, according to MMA Fighting.

That’s practically double the numbers “Rampage” pulled for his Satoshi Ishii fight in June 2016, but far short of what Tito Ortiz and Chael Sonnen were able to draw last January (more on that here), though it should be noted Bellator 175 averaged what a typical UFC Fight Night would pull in terms of ratings.

In the Bellator 175 main event, Jackson dropped a unanimous decision to the Bader-bound Lawal, who came up short against “Rampage” after their first go-round at Bellator 120 back in 2014. A rubber match is unlikely, as this was the final fight on Jackson’s Bellator MMA contract.
