UFC President Dana White is ready to promote another form of combat. Despite being involved in mixed martial arts for nearly two decades, UFC President Dana White is not shying away from trying new things. 

He spearheads the UFC – one of the biggest MMA promotions in the world. Perhaps it is safe to say that he knows how to run a business. Thus, the veteran promoter launching the ‘Power Slap League’ did not surprise combat enthusiasts. Though, it received a mixed reception from the fight fans.

The Connecticut-born took over UFC back in the day when it was riddled with controversies. In his own words, the image of the promotion was so bad that nobody was willing to provide him with a venue to conduct events; White had to struggle for broadcasters. However, he believed in his ideas and received the necessary help from the Fertitta brothers.

Eventually, White turned the promotion into a billion-dollar empire and now perhaps he could do the same with his new idea, which he is very high on.

He said, “The bottom line is, in a boxing match, guys get hit with 300-400 punches in a f****** fight. These guys are going to get hit with three slaps.

Furthermore, the chance of getting a serious injury is reduced in comparison to other combat sports. Instead of being able to hit at any part of the body like in MMA or risking the upper part of the body in boxing, the participants aim at the cheek of their opponents.
