ONE Championship must postpone the start of its next Atomic Weight Grand Prix to eight women.
The tournament was originally scheduled to start on May 28 at the ONE: Empower event at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. However, the promotion announced on Friday that the event “has been postponed due to the current COVID-19 situation.”

Seo Hee Ham vs. Denice Zamboanga
Alyona Rassohyna vs. Stamp Fairtex

The Grand Prix winner will receive a title opportunity against current atomic weight champion Angela Lee.
A pair of flyweight bouts were also scheduled for the May 28 card. Champion Jingnan Xiong was to defend her title against Michelle Nicolini, and Anissa Meksen and Martine Michieletto were to meet in a kickboxing bout.
