NFL legend Tom Brady sat close to the action at Power Slap 6 with UFC boss Dana White on Friday night.
Ahead of the highly anticipated Super Bowl LVIII, the seven-time champion sat alongside the two Whites at the promotion’s sixth event and first outside of the UFC Apex. The card took place at the Durango Casino & Resort in Las Vegas and may have been the most star-studded gathering in Sin City before the NFL season finale.
Brady was briefly presented on the broadcast when he entered the venue dressed to the nines. He then spent much of the event sitting ringside as the four-match main card took center stage.
In addition to Brady, Travis Scott, Pat McAfee, Charles Barkley, The Chainsmokers and Machine Gun Kelly were also in attendance.
Since Power Slap is White’s latest venture, the UFC was also well represented in the audience. The event was attended by former middleweight champion Sean Strickland, recently retired star Jorge Masvidal and UFC legend Chuck Liddell. Former UFC investors Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta also showed their support.

NBA and UFC legends Charles Barkley and Chuck Liddell joined the star-studded guest list
Additionally, internet stars Sneako, Speed, Kai Cenat and the Nelk Boys headlined the star-studded guest list.
White began his slap fighting promotion in 2023 after the sport first went viral in Europe. Power Slap is sanctioned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and was picked up by TBS during its first season.
After the network decided to stop airing the promo, Power Slap became available on the Rumble video platform for season 2.
Despite receiving criticism from viewers and fighters alike for health and safety risks, White continues to market the league alongside the UFC.
Friday’s event ended with Manny Muniz defeating Christapher Thomas via fifth-round knockout to win the Power Slap welterweight title. Sheena Bathory, Brian Ellis and Ryan Phillips also left the slapper podium victorious.
