Sean O’Malley likens Slap League format to a ‘recipe for disaster’

Sean O’Malley acknowledged the entertainment appeal of Dana White’s newest combat sports foray into slap competitions. However, he calls it a “recipe for disaster.”

White introduced the Power Slap League earlier this year as his spin on the current slap combat craze. In a recent UFC teaser for the January premiere on TBS, it was revealed that the format of the show would be similar to The Ultimate Fighter.

Throughout the season, many participants will share a home and engage in slapping events. On YouTube, Sean O’Malley and his coach Tim Welch were debating the idea when Sean expressed his opinion that Power Slap would probably be a failure—but in a manner that you can’t possibly ignore.

O’Malley said: “Literally, this is a recipe for disaster. For disaster slash entertainment, I’m going to get 16 guys that slap each other in the face, that want to become famous, that want to become popular.”

“Put them in a f*cking house.”

“That’s f*cked. It looks like The Ultimate Fighter, but even crazier because you don’t have to make weight. You don’t have to be in shape. You can get f*cked up and go and perform.”

Rumble is a well-known site for sharing videos. Rumble and Power Slap just announced a partnership that would bring a whole new exclusive program and a special Power Slap channel to the platform.

Dana White stated, “Rumble is an incredible platform and we couldn’t be more excited to be the first sports league to join. Tune in to the Power Slap page because you’re not going to want to miss this.”

According to the website, The Nevada State Athletic Commission has authorized and sanctioned Power Slap as the top slap-fighting organization in the world. Power Slap pits athletes from all around the world against one another on the ultimate platform to display their strength, skill, and tenacity.
