Power Slap League, Dana White’s controversial new venture, has once again found itself in the middle of a controversy. This time, the organization has been caught lying about the attendance at one of their recent events.
The incident in question occurred when the announcers at the arena proudly boasted about the sold-out crowd, but the camera panned out to show numerous empty seats. This poor attempt to deceive the audience is just one of the many tactics Power Slap League has been using to stay relevant.

Since its launch in January, the league has been a hot topic on social media, with many people criticizing it for being too dangerous and unregulated. Despite the backlash, the league gained a significant amount of attention for its vicious slaps, which knocked out many competitors. Dana White continued to promote the league, posting clips on UFC’s official social media accounts.
However, despite the hype on social media, people have been hesitant to watch the league’s events. The organization is struggling, but White refuses to give up on it. They tried to convince people that Power Slap League was the next big thing, but failed hilariously.
Power Slap League has been using various tactics to promote its events, including using buzzer accounts to leave comments on social media. When the organization shares a post, there are often several comments from “fans” that seem excited about the event. Unfortunately, these accounts are fake.
The league’s struggling status is further highlighted by White’s claim that Power Slap League’s viewership numbers are on par with NBA and NFL. The truth, however, is that the league is barely staying afloat.
What Does the Future Hold?
It’s unclear what the future holds for Power Slap League. The organization’s controversial nature and lack of popularity may ultimately lead to its downfall. However, Dana White has proven time and time again that he is willing to go to great lengths to keep his ventures afloat.
