The Power Slap league, the new slap fighting combat league that is partially owned by UFC boss Dana White, is set to make its premiere on Wednesday, January 18 on TBS.

The league will feature 30 combatants across an eight-episode season.

Power Slap — which has been criticized by many for allowing fighters to be struck directly in the head without an opportunity to defend itself — will be sanctioned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

“I’m very excited for the launch of Power Slap,” said Dana White when the league was announced. “I’ve been working on this since 2017. I saw some footage of slap fighting on social media and I was instantly hooked. From the first day I saw it, I felt like this could be big. I knew what needed to be done to make it a real sport just like we did with MMA. We got it sactioned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) with defined rules, rankings and weight classes. Power Slap is built for the modern sports fan.”

The Power Slap debut will come at 10:00 p.m. ET.
