Power Slap is a slap fighting league that was approved by the Nevada Athletic Commission in October 2022. Power Slap was started by Dana White of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship).
Prior to Nevada's approval of Power Slap, Dana White had previously expressed an interest in the sport of slap fighting. And, it seems, that after slap fighting's debut appearance at the Arnold Schwarzenegger sporting event in Ohio, Dana stepped up his efforts to start the Slap Fight league and promotion of slap fighting.
Given Dana White's participation and resources, we expect the Power Slap league will be a significant leap forward in taking slap fighting mainstream.
According to recent reports, Power Slap will debut their first event in late 2023. We look forward to seeing more US-based slap fighting.
On April 24th, 2022, the Chin Check Slap Down Championship hosted their first event in Stockton, California.
The 3 slap fights were:
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Logan Paul, together with Fanmio and PunchDown, are bringing you the premier of Slap Fighting Championship. Watch the adrenaline and intensity of one the most exciting new combat sports with 16 different matches including 3-time champion "Zaleś" Zalewski taking on the American slap fighting sensation, Da Crazy Hawaiian, Saturday, March 5, 2022.
On March 5th, 2022 in Columbus, Ohio, two of the world's best slap fighters faced off against each other at the Arnold Schwarzenegger sporting event, hosted by Logan Paul.
Both slap warriors gracefully took powerful shots in the first round. In the second round, Da Crazy Hawaiian gave Zales a slap that stunned him in a way that we've never seen him stunned before. Zales went "out" for a second and stumbled back so hard that it took 3 giant men to catch him so that he didn't fall on his ass.
Ultimately, David Zales won by way of knockout in the 3rd round, with Da Crazy Hawaiian slumping over onto the table before falling to the floor.
During the fight, Koa expressed his dissatisfaction with the fact that all judges were from Poland and that there were no judges from the USA. We also found it weird that one of the guys catching Koa was celebrating at the same time.
Hmmm... I think we need a rematch!
