Cordillera - Asia's largest sports media property ONE Championship is now amongst the top 10 biggest sports media properties in the world for viewership and engagement metrics across all platforms, according to a survey by Nielsen. 

ONE Championship formerly known as ONE FC also ranked the 3rd most watched global sports media property in the world in terms of TV viewership surpassing UFC which ranked in the 6th spot.

Nielsen survey charts shows that MMA has been the most popular sport being watched in the world next to football.

Meanwhile, ONE CEO Chatri Sidyothong was elated with the latest survey and expressed his gratitude to the team that made ONE the greatest MMA sport in the world.

Read his message below:

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to our superstar team at ONE for everything. The world is still suffering from the worst global crisis in a hundred years. And you have shown the world that impossible is nothing. Thank you to the greatest team in the world for your heart and hustle. 

In 1903, 8 days before the Wright Brothers flew into the skies with the first ever flyable airplane in history, a reporter at The New York Times wrote an article about how it would take at least 1 million to 10 million years for mankind to build a flyable plane. 

No one has ever changed the world with just the limits of logic. It has always been passion, imagination, dreams, and guts that change the world. We have, but one precious life. Let's live our greatness. Do what it is that ignites your soul. Dream big. Do good. Chase your greatness.

On the first quarter of 2021, ONE Championship has signed a deal with United States' prime time television TNT to broadcast four-part series of ONE bout cards. 

The deal is seen to boost ONE Championship presence in the United States.
