A Limited Liability Corporation which is owned and operated by Dana White, Lorenzo Fertitta, and Lawrence Epstein, has introduced “Slap Fighting” to the Nevada Athletic Commission, for approval.

The Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) will review its case and approve the request if, “Such contests or exhibitions qualify as unarmed combat … and thus fall under the jurisdiction of the Nevada Athletic commission.” Writes MMA Junkie. “Slap Fighting” may or may not fall under NAC jurisdiction as it pertains to unarmed combat.

According to the NAC website, the organization focuses on, “regulates all contests and exhibitions of unarmed combat within the state of Nevada, including licensure and supervision of promoters, boxers, kickboxers, mixed martial arts fighters, seconds, ring officials, managers, and matchmakers.

The request comes from Schiaffo LLC which in addition to Dana White, Fertitta, and Epstein, also lists The Ultimate Fighter producer Craig Piligian as a manager. It is not clearly stated exactly what the rules are of “Slap Fighting.”

Dana White on Instagram recently did a casting call for the biggest slap competition in history. On Instagram, the UFC President last week shared:
