While the UFC plans on resuming their live events on May 9, it is going to be at least one more month before One Championship does the same thing.

One Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong has taken to Facebook to reveal that the promotion has postponed all their events in May due to the coronavirus pandemic:

BREAKING NEWS: All May events for ONE Championship will be postponed until further notice due to the recent COVID-19 developments (border closings and lockdowns) across most countries in Asia. Our highest priority remains the safety and health of our athletes, officials, staff, fans, and the public during these challenging times. My team and I are working around the clock on multiple options to bring back our events as soon as safely possible. Stay tuned for news! #WeAreONE

The promotion had planned on running empty arena shows starting in April, but coronavirus related travel restrictions have put thus plans on hold.

With no events taking place next month, it means that One Championship: Battle For The Ages on June 5 would be the promotion's next show.
