The UFC’s Dana White is back with a new sports league…and, boy oh boy, is this thing garnering controversy!

Good morning, sports fans!   Davey Mac here with another Sports Report for ya this morning!   But first!   Let’s talk about Mr. White!

The man who led the UFC to gigantic mainstream success has decided to pursue a league…Power Slap.

UFC 277 Weigh-in

The “game” is pretty simple: people take turns slapping the poop out of each other.   Head shots only.   The first person to either tap out or get knocked out loses.

So far, the league is getting a ton of heat from people throughout sports media.   With all that we know about CTE and head trauma…this seems like a bad idea.

Meanwhile, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs was apparently channel-surfing the other day and discovered the sport.   His commentary is pretty hilarious check it out.

All in all…I think Dana White and TBS probably need to reconsider this “sport.”   It really is just an hour-long program of people giving each other concussions…not a great look in 2023 with all we now know about head injuries.   I’m with Stefon Diggs…what the hay is this?!?!   I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents!

  • Cowboys Sign Backup Kicker

    Well, yesterday the Cowboys said they were sticking with kicker Brett Maher (who missed four extra points).   Well, Maher is still on the team…but the Cowboys have also signed kicker Tristan Vizcaino to the practice squad this week as insurance.   If Maher struggled to kick in practice on Thursday and Friday…Vizcaino will get the job for the Cowboys’ game against the 49’ers.
