Dana White’s Power Slap League to air on TBS

Earlier this week, more information was revealed in a press conference as to what Dana White’s Power Slap League is and where it can be found.

White revealed during the UFC 281 fight week that an eight-episode deal is in place for Power Slap to air on TBS beginning in January. Last month the new league gained acceptance from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Two competitors take turns delivering powerful open hand strikes to each other’s faces until one wins the match.

Rules below are from the Power Slap League website

A coin toss or seeding method will determine who gets to elect to slap or defend first.

THE CLOCK
30 seconds to slap. 30 seconds to recover. Repeat.

DIVISIONS
Mens and Womens division.

ROUNDS
The number of rounds depends on the format, with the minimum being 3.

In each round, both competitors have the opportunity to deliver a single strike to their opponent’s face. And the obligation to receive their opponent’s strike in return.

METHOD OF VICTORY
KO, TKO and points.

Like boxing and MMA, Power Slap judging is based on a “10-point must system,” with a round winner scoring 10 points and the opponent scoring 9 or fewer.

Judging criteria is based on the strikers effectiveness, as well as the defender’s reaction and recovery time.
