In addition, internet stars Sneako, Speed, Kai Cenat and the Nelk Boys rounded out the star-studded guest list.

White started his slap fighting promotion in 2023 after the sport first gained virality in Europe. Power Slap is sanctioned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and was picked up by TBS during its first season.

After the network decided to stop airing the promo, Power Slap became available on video platform Rumble for Season 2.

Despite criticism from viewers and fighters for health and safety risks, White continues to co-market the league with the UFC.

Friday’s event ended with Manny Muniz knocking out Christapher Thomas in the fifth round to win the Power Slap welterweight title. Sheena Bathory, Brian Ellis and Ryan Phillips also left the slapper’s podium victorious.
