I hadn’t known that “slap-off contests” were a thing till I watched the video below, but now you’d have to call me a diehard fan. Really, where else are you going to see some burly dude KO’d by a single massive blow from another tough guy’s open palm? Yeah, nowhere.

Don’t be alarmed when the first slap in this footage from an Ink Masters Tatt2 Show fails to faze the seemingly immovable target. That’s just a warm-up. Trust me, the big one is coming.

I’d hate to see what that beast of a man can do with an actual fist.
