Dana White just dropped a bomb on the MMA scene, teasing some major news about UFC 300. In a recent Instagram story, he couldn’t contain his excitement, hinting that he’s gearing up to spill the beans in a few days. This was after the boxing community announced the Ngannou vs. Joshua scene. White’s words hyped up the MMA community, who were expecting an announcement from him. However, it seems the UFC head honcho was in the mood to joke, as his latest announcement does not justify his words.

Dana White took to his Instagram handle to add a post about Powerslap and not the UFC. White stated that people could now watch Powerslap for free. He captioned the post as “14 hours of nonstop @powerslap is STREAMING FREE all day on Rumble!” His announcement didn’t sit well with the fans who were waiting for a genuine response. The fans flooded the post with comments. Some of the comments by the fans are as follows:-
