Power Slap Won’t Air On TBS As Dana White Outlines Next Move

Power Slap will no longer air on the TBS network, forcing Dana White into action.

In January of this year, TBS began showing the first glimpse of Power Slap. However, as time passed, viewership significantly dropped, prompting TBS to terminate its agreement to broadcast the competition.

The writing was on the wall, as Stephen Cloobeck, the former NAC chairman who voted in favor of the sport’s legalization in Nevada, expressed regret about his decision to sanction the sport.

But it appears that Dana White has discovered a way to address this issue. Before TBS officially announced its decision to stop broadcasting Power Slap, White had already made public his intention to shift to Rumble’s streaming platform on a permanent basis.

He had also expressed a desire to relocate the show to Abu Dhabi for the second season.

In his comments on the Pat McAfee Show, he said: “We haven’t done the deal yet, but we have a term sheet with Rumble for the next two years to deliver two more episodes [seasons] of the reality show, Power Slap and eight live fights. I am working on a deal right now to film season two on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.”
