The debut of Dana White’s Power Slap League will still be on TBS… just at a later date.
It was unclear whether or not TBS would partake in White’s new promotion after the UFC boss was caught on video slapping his wife on New Year’s Eve. Especially on Thursday, when TBS had pulled Power Slap from their programming schedule, which was originally slated for Jan. 11.
Despite the looming controversy of White hitting his wife recently, TBS will continue to showcase Power Slap on their channel.
As of Friday, TBS has rescheduled the premiere episode of Power Slap to air one week later on Jan 18. The UFC has since promoted the new date on their social media.
Other than Dana White speaking to TMZ about what happened between him and his wife, there has been radio silence from the UFC and also Turner Broadcasting and Warner Media, who are airing Power Slap.
