The PFL has pulled the plug on its entire 2020 season.
According to PFL CEO Peter Murray, the promotion will resume operations in 2021, and all contracted fighters will receive a monthly cash stipend to hold them over.
MMA Junkie confirmed the news with a PFL official on Monday after it was first reported by ESPN. The PFL later issued a statement in a press release.
“In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Professional Fighters League has rescheduled our upcoming 2020 season for Spring 2021,” Murray said. “PFL is a global MMA league with athletes from over 25 countries, and our decision is guided by the health and safety of our fighters, fans, partners, and event personnel.
