Dana White is again under fire for low fighter pay – but this time in regards to his Power Slap League venture with TBS. Thus far, the league hasn’t had a ton of great coverage in its infancy. From Dana White’s altercation with his wife prior to the league’s debut, injury concerns, and low ratings, it’s not necessarily the start that all involved were hoping for.

Now, the Power Slap League is facing another hurdle – that being criticism for low fighter pay. One former UFC middleweight competitor, Eric Spicely, was offered a deal to compete for the Power Slap League, and revealed the fighter pay. It was very underwhelming to say the least.

Dana White & Power Slap League Under Fire For Fighter Pay

Spicely reveals that he was offered a staggering $2000 to show up and $2000 for a potential win bonus. Check it out here:

MMA analyst Luke Thomas followed up with a report of his own, suggesting that he has seen evidence of Spicely’s claims:

It should also be noted that Spicely claimed the winner of the league could win a likely payout of $10,000. The longtime middleweight hasn’t competed in mixed martial arts (MMA) since September of 2021. He’s currently on a four-fight losing streak.

His last fight under the UFC’s banner took place in June of 2019 when he was defeated by Deron Winn. The last time Spicely competed under the OKTAGON banner was in September 2021, in which he suffered a first-round TKO defeat. After a weight-cutting incident resulted in the cancellation of a scheduled bout against Markus Perez in August 2020, Eric Spicely’s tenure with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) came to an end due to a string of four consecutive losses.
