Facebook’s Top 10 Sports Properties

For perspective on the combat sports industry, ONE generated 8.8 billion organic video views in 2021 versus UFC’s 1.7 billion organic video views in 2021. Bellator generated 115.6 million organic video views in 2021 versus PFL’s 88.5 million organic video views in 2021. Congratulations to all of my teammates at ONE for this extraordinary achievement! #WeAreONE
