The Super Bowl might not be the most star-studded sporting event in Vegas in the coming days… because Dana White‘s Power Slap 6 Friday night in Sin City featured some of the biggest stars in the world including Tom Brady And Travis Scott!
And we have a ton of photos and videos from the event.
It wasn’t just TB 12 and La Flame in the building… Charles Barkley, Pat McAfee, Johnny Manziel, Taylor Lewan, Bert Kreischer, IShowSpeed, billionaire Michael Rubinand several others were also there for the festivities — and judging by the stars, it was a blow.
Friday night marked White’s first event outside of the UFC’s Apex facility…at the Durango Resort, marking a major step forward for the young organization.
We caught up with Dana backstage at the event (while he wasn’t hanging out with Tom and Travis) … and asked him about the night.
“This is the first time we’ve sold tickets. We’ve sold VIP packages. It was a good night,” White said with a big smile on his face.
As for the action on the mats, the main event, Manny Muniz vs. Christopher Thomas, was a barn burner…and the scrap that DW was most looking forward to.
“Muniz has never been knocked out and Chris Thomas knocks everyone out,” White told us.
Manny ultimately defeated Chris by knockout in the 5th round.
We also spoke to UFC legend Chuck Liddell at the event… and while it’s clear he enjoys watching, it doesn’t sound like he’s coming out of retirement to compete in Power Slap 7.
Jax Taylor was also in the house… and the former Vanderpump Rules star told us how he became a fan of slap fights.
Taylor says he initially saw highlights on Instagram, so he messaged Power Slap… which led to an invite from Dana.
“I’m telling you, you really have to be here to see this. It’s one thing to watch it. I can’t stop watching. It’s the most barbaric, amazing thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” says Jax . said… “It’s amazing. I’m obsessed with it!”
