Dana White, Power Slap

The last few weeks have seen a whole lot of promotion for Power Slap. The league, founded by UFC president Dana White, was set to debut on TBS last week.

However, the scandal surrounding Dana led to that being pushed back to Wednesday 18th.

Finally, last night, fans and critics got the chance to see the highly-produced show that is Power Slap.

In terms of the highlights, it’s about what you would expect – a whole lot of people slapping each other without much safety involved.

We’re in a particularly strange era for combat sports. While many have accepted the likes of karate and bare-knuckle boxing making a mainstream comeback, this is different.

There are so many uncertainties involved with something like this. Who knows, perhaps it will be a resounding success – but there’s definitely a long way to go.

What do you think about Power Slap as a concept? Will it be a success or will it be a failure? Are we going to see Dana White receive any kind of punishment for his NYE actions? Let us know in the comments, BJPENN Nation!
