UFC’s Sean O’Malley Condemns Dana White’s Power Slap League-‘I Know How Bad It Is And How Bad It Is To Do That To Your Brain’
The launch of this competition has been received with mixed opinions from the spectators. Though it has provided some brilliant action and knockout scenes, some people have argued that the league ought not to have progressed following a video of White slapping his wife at a New Year’s Eve party amid a heated argument.
And yet, the Nevada State Athletic Commission was the first jurisdiction to officially recognise and approve Power Slap, and it is likely that others will follow.
Recently, on an edition of the ‘BROMALLEY’ podcast, O’Malley voiced his concerns over the sport of professional slap fighting.
He said: “I don’t know. I cannot watch it. I don’t know if I can watch it because I understand what concussions are. I know how bad it is and how bad it is to do that to your brain… I’ve seen thumbnails and look away. I can’t even see it.
“That’s so scary to think about, losing your memory. But you don’t think about it when [you’re in your 20s]. People gotta be careful. You’re gonna want that brain.”
O’Malley may have his concerns, but a world title shot in the UFC is where his focus lies. And he must not lose sight of that.
