Seemingly intrigued, Schaub tuned into the first episode. But his curiosity flipped upside down, as he took to Twitter to note that the event was the stupidest s**’ he’s watched, and how it is a detriment to the UFC.
“This is the stupidest s*** I’ve ever seen. The fact it’s associated with the UFC sets the sport back 10 yrs...” he tweeted, in part.
\u201cChecking out the Slap fight league. This is the stupidest shit I\u2019ve ever seen. The fact it\u2019s associated with the UFC sets the sport back 10 yrs. All that being said it\u2019s entertaining. Anyone wanna bet it\u2019s not around in a year?\u201d
Schaub further said he would get some of his friends to tune into the Power Slap whenever that happens.
“Whiskey, friends, and slapping. How can I NOT! It’s sooo insane,” he added.
\u201cAlso, you\u2019re crazy if you don\u2019t think I\u2019m doing a Fight companion for the Slap league championship. Whenever that is. Whiskey, friends, and slapping. How can I NOT! It\u2019s sooo insane \ud83d\udc4b\ud83c\udffd #slapfight\u201d
Fans and well-known individuals such as MMA journalist Ariel Helwani called the organization “shameful,” calling for the organization to be removed, but it wasn’t.
\u201c"Shame on TBS! if they're going to air that Power Slap Fighting League!"\n@arielhelwani\u201d

Before footage of White slapping his wife surfaced online, Power Slap was already considered controversial because it appears as if no technical skills are required, and contestants are taking unnecessary strikes to the head.
