    Combat sports: "Protect yourself at all times or we will literally stop the contest and declare you the loser."
    Slap and forth: "Stay still and let this other person wind up to hit you as hard as they can"
    Same Athletic Commissions allowing both of these, I can't help but wonder what steps were taken behind the scenes to get the ACs to contradict themselves on athlete safety to this degree. I hope there are investigations.

    It’s not really slapping either. It’s an open palm haymaker right to the face. Thrown by big men with full rotation and speed. And you’re not allowed *per the rules* to defend yourself by blocking, dodging, deflecting etc. This isn’t going to end well. It literally is the dumbest thing I have seen in sports ever.

    • Kevin“Housekeeper”Holland
      Kevin“Housekeeper”Holland 4 หลายเดือนก่อน +77

      Yes. Literally no different than hooks or any difference between their forces is minute enough to be negligible. The audacity to call these slaps and undermining the intelligence of the viewers of mma/ufc

    • DTLA Kai
      DTLA Kai 4 หลายเดือนก่อน +71

      Yup exactly. From what I've read, a trained fighter throwing an open palm strike can hit with around 80% of the force of a punch.
      So they're taking massive hits to the head with zero protection, just a terrible idea.

    • JG
      JG 4 หลายเดือนก่อน +13

      Even in the ridiculous video where Dana White is explaining the rules, he says how "you can't lead with the palm of your hand" and then the only 2 examples shown are literally slaps where they're leading with the palm of their hand.

      #GuitarCovers 4 หลายเดือนก่อน +11

      @SnakeKingBlues Well exactly. Imagine in the UFC before Francis left if he was allowed to throw his hardest 1 punch at someone leaving their face and head completely still and unprotected. At least in Boxing/MMA the fighters get a chance to protect themselves and are wearing gloves that distribute the damage rather than just getting smashed repeatedly in the same spots undefended with a bare hand lol

    It takes a lot of courage, bravery, and raw skill to be at the breaking edge of an upcoming sport. A lot of people won't understand the complex training and research that goes into becoming a refined slap artist. That is what I refer to these brave legends, they are artists unlike anyone has seen from our time and anyone will see for futures to come. Embrace, sit back, and enjoy the show.

    Great video as always Dr. Sutterer! While your information and insight about the facial nerve is absolutely correct, I don't think this is the case here. There is always a possibility of facial nerve trauma caused from hits to the face like this, but after watching the video it's unlikely that this is the reason why his face is droopy. In the post fight interview, the fighter appears to be still blinking on his left side (something he would not be able to do with facial nerve damage). It's also hard to tell if the left side lip muscles are actually working or if it's just his right side mouth pulling them up when he talks so damage to the buccal or mandibular division of the facial nerve is a possibility, but in my professional opinion (dentist here), I believe it's just a MASSIVE hematoma.

    • Bodhi Daruma
      Bodhi Daruma 4 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      @Dime10 1 Because honestly this guy’s face has gone very viral and it might at the bare minimum attract more eyeballs to the sport (good or bad … publicity is publicity).

And so as a matter of honor, he backed out cuz that person didn't even got half the damage as this man got...

    Unless he were to come out and say "I don't really care about the people competing in Power Slap as much as I care about UFC fighters," which would be a disturbing message of its own...after following through with Power Slap I just don't get how Dana White could ever try to claim that he takes the topic of brain trauma seriously. Clearly he's okay with people taking repeated and defenseless strikes to the head if there's enough money involved.

    Never let someone put a hold on you. Never let someone slap you at full force without any measure of defense. It's a 100% offense sport, which in itself is stupid. Like letting two basketball players cross each other up and seeing which one bows out from embarassment first.

    • Semi

      @blue80 -- I think you misunderstand where I'm coming from with my statement.
      I am fundamentally challenging the athletic requirement to call it a sport.
      Is bowling a sport or is it a competition?
      Is chess a sport or a competition?
      Is NASCAR a sport or a competition?
      Is Golf a sport or a competition?
      I believe NASCAR and Golf are sports.
      I believe chess and bowling are competitions.
      I believe slapping is a competition. The only requirement is to have hands that can move horizontally through the air which is a lower requirement than what bowling takes.
      Yes, there is a greater requirement to win, but the requirement to participate is very minimal.
      Toughness and willingness are a greater requirement than any athletic ability.

    NFL: "we're doing everything we can to prevent major head trauma"
    UFC: "if you don't defend yourself, we'll stop the fight"
    Slap fighting: "you cannot defend youself and must take major head trauma"
    How is this a thing and how has it not been shut down yet?

    My main issue is, like you said, most of the time it's not even a slap, it's more of a palm strike. I must say tho, I have no problem with the booty slap contests!

    I discovered a lump in my left mandible about 20 years ago that turned out to be a golf ball sized tumour, an ameloblastoma, and I had several operations to have it removed. They dislocated my jaw and went in through the floor of my mouth, and when I woke up following the surgery, my face was black and blue, plus the pain was almost a religious experience. I looked nowhere near as bad as the guy in the slap video. I was somewhat swollen, absolutely, but nothing like that guy. The drooping mouth is a cause for concern

    My daughter is deaf and is always being asked about her cochlear implant. She was implanted when she was 3, 15 years ago and is very open to answer any questions. I've always taught her to be a great self advocate, and freely share her experience and never feel shame for others' curiosity, because when they know, they can share the information, too. It would be cool if you did a video on how the actual surgery works, as that's the most popular subject when parents ask me about it. Most folks don't understand how invasive the surgery is, its risks, and how complex the internal equipment actually is. Love your vids!

      He's going to come off extremely sarcastic but I'm being 100% serious there are a bunch of doctors on TH-cam you should find the one that does surgery videos not the one that does sports videos. They each have their specialties for a reason each degree is different. The doctor helping you overcome a sports injury is not going to be the same doctor doing any sort of surgery on your head

    I miss when slap fighting was a niche thing people who didn't actually train to fight did. Dana White is going to get people crippled or even killed by giving this mainstream press and okays from commissions. People can do whatever they want but this should have never been cleared by actual "experts".

    The poor aspect too is that if you unconscious after getting the slap, you can't slap him again. You just lost. If the slap is in the same time for both, that is better. Everyone get slapped equally.

      Where I’m from, a slap fight was a non-serious fight with no fists or grappling. 5.5 times out of 10 it would eventually elevate into an actual rumble tho…

    Let me tell you, I broke my cheek and had to get a plate put in but the bone mangled my facial nerve.
    I thought it was cool at first…. But oh man, the right side of my face doesn’t move, I can’t feel my entire right side of my face. (From cheek to chin)
    When I floss if I don’t look in the mirror I’ll be flossing the top of my teeth because I cannot feel my teeth as much.
    I cannot smile, my face sags, I can no longer blow, or whistle, and I can’t wipe the excess from drinks off with my top lip.

    Dana White:
    > keeps fighters broke so he can use their economic desperation as leverage
    > therefore he crushes any fighter unionization attempts
    > doesn't provide adequate health insurance to the fighters he's exploiting
    So obviously he'd willingly back a "sport" like slap boxing knowing the consequences. He doesn't see people for anything other than cash cows.
    There is nothing unique about Dana either. All CEOs do this. Yes, even at YOUR workplace. Unionize, guys :)
