Steve-O struggles to understand how the Power Slap League is doing on TV 

Steve-O is seemingly not impressed with the Power Slap League and recently weighed in on Dana White’s highly controversial new combat sports venture, the Power Slap League. The sport involves two competitors slapping each other until one gets knocked out or concedes.

The brutal nature of this new sport has not gone unnoticed by the combat sports community, and White has even come under heavy fire for being associated with it. Many health experts and combat enthusiasts have condemned the Power Slap League for its dangerous ruleset and concerns about fighters’ health.

On a recent episode of Steve-O’s Wild Ride! podcast with Chael Sonnen, the American television personality claimed that he found it hard to believe the show would be allowed to be aired on TV despite its brutality. He compared it to his hit show, Jackass, and stated:

“It’s really weird to me. I struggle with it as well. I remember when Jackass came out… The problem I envisioned us having is just being allowed on TV… What we do is we… Work our way around the rules and kind of jump through hoops and a little bit we find ways to get away with showing what we do. I don’t know how this is on TV.”

Regardless, it seems the Power Slap League is here to stay and will continue airing on TBS for the foreseeable future.

Power Slap League slammed by former UFC referee for the health risk it poses to participants

Former UFC referee John McCarthy has joined the list of combat sports personalities to speak out against the new Power Slap League show.

The controversial show takes place at the UFC’s Apex Center in Las Vegas and features both men and women competing. The objective of the game is to slap your opponent hard enough that they can’t recover in 30 seconds. There are 3 to 5 rounds per match, and any knockdown will result in a 10-count from the referee.

On a recent episode of the WEIGHING IN podcast, former UFC referee John McCarthy stated that he believes the sport is just “sanctioned brain trauma”:

“I just find it hard to believe, especially with places like Nevada, that they are regulating sanctioned brain trauma… There’s no defense of any type… How do you talk about this?… There really is no rules to it. What are these guys getting paid? They ain’t getting paid sh*t.”
