The Professional Fighters League, a mixed martial arts organization, has postponed its season as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The league plans on resuming next spring, although it may decide to run one-off events during the fourth quarter of this year depending on health and economic conditions.


Peter Murray, the PFL’s chief executive, said the league considered having a condensed schedule this year. But he added that was not feasible because the PFL has fighters from more than 25 countries, and he wanted them and the event personnel to feel safe and not worry about the coronavirus. Fighters under contract with the PFL will receive a monthly cash stipend for the rest of the year.
