Live: Dana White’s Power Slap press conference video

If you enjoy watching people slap the s—t out of each other, I’ve got great news for you.

UFC President Dana White has created (some might say stole) a professional slap fighting promotion and will debut “Dana White’s Power Slap League” later this year at the APEX facility in Las Vegas. In addition, White and Co. will introduce the media to his new endeavor during a special pre-slap press conference TODAY (Fri., Nov. 11, 2022) at 2:30 p.m. ET live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

You can watch the full presser in the embedded video above.

YEAR-END PPV BLOWOUT! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) closes out its final pay-per-view (PPV) of the year on Sat., Dec. 10, 2022, with a battle for the vacant Light Heavyweight crown between former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Jan Blachowicz, looking to stop the momentum of No. 3-seeded Magomed Ankalaev. In the co-main event of UFC 282, which will take place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, breakout star, Paddy Pimblett, intends to keep his momentum going at the expense of gritty veteran, Jared Gordon.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

“We’ve spent the last year sort of beta-testing this in a controlled environment to really test and see the dynamic of how this would function as an actual league and real sport,” UFC chief business officer Hunter Campbell told the athletic commission just last month. “What we’ve found is that this is actually a skill sport that the participants, who are at a high level in this, are skilled athletes in. They train. They’re in good shape. They take it seriously, not dissimilar with what you see in MMA and boxing.”

White is expected to reveal “a major network partner” for his new league at today’s presser.
