The reality is that I stand on the shoulders of the great men and women of Team ONE. They deserve all of the credit for our achievements. Without a doubt, Team ONE is the world’s greatest sports media team in history. Thank you to my team at ONE Championship for your passion, excellence, and inspiration in pushing our dream forward together! I am blessed to serve you as your leader. #gratitude
