Power Slap chief Dana White is billing the contest as the first 800-pound clash.
‘Slap for Cash’ – real name Adam Hutchinson – chomped on a chocolate bar as he weighed in at a staggering 33 stone [461 lbs] for his Power Slap debut.
Dayne ‘Da Hawaiian Hitman’ Viernes came in at almost 100 pounds less, hitting the scales at 26.2 stone [367lbs].
It is set to be the heaviest match-up in Power Slap’s history as the two goliaths go head-to-head.
Special measures have been put in place to prepare for the duel, including the introduction of two new catchers.
White revealed two strongmen have been hired to prevent the two fighters from falling after they are hit.
He told BroBible: “What we had to do is we brought in, you know the World Strongman Competition, we brought in two of the strongest guys in the world from the strongman competition.
“One guy’s name is Evan Singleton, and the other guy is named Trey Mitchell, those two dudes are 400 pounds each, so they’re going to be the catchers.”
