Dana White’s Power Slap League is set to debut this Weds. night (Jan. 18) on TBS and for those fans who aren’t sure what to expect from a sport where two opponents slap the s—t out of each other, may I introduce you to International bruiser Sorin Comsa, who survived 10 rounds of open-handed violence to win the RXF heavyweight title in Romania.
Here’s a sample of his Las Vegas Casino slapping:
This guy's face swelled like crazy and he's bleeding but he's still going, can't be too healthy pic.twitter.com/jSIae09dt2— Matysek (@Matysek88) January 16, 2023
Former UFC champion Conor McGregor was impressed.
“Absolutely gorgeous technique, congrats to the new heavyweight champion,” McGregor wrote on Twitter.
Watch the full event below:
Slap fighting has been around for a few years and even made its way to last year’s Arnold Classic, but White’s Power Slap promotion — which launches just a few weeks after his own “embarrassing” slapping incident — is the first genuine effort to launch the sport stateside.
Whether or not fans tune in remains to be seen.
