Dan Hooker was brutally roasted by fans after his comments about Dana White's Power Slap League.

Dan Hooker was not always the biggest supporter of the Power Slap League, retweeting a video of a slap fighter whose face got severely disfigured yet he continued fighting. The caption of the tweet questioned how severe the damage to the fighter was.

However, the New Zealand native recently tweeted that it is now his "favorite" thing to watch:

"SLAP is my new favorite show"

Take a look at the tweet:

SLAP is my new favorite show 🔥

While the nature of the tweet, serious or in jest, isn't certain, fans didn't hold back in the comments.

Twitter user @DanielBHervey responded to 'The Hangman' by saying:

"Dana's not gonna sh*g you mate"
@danthehangman Dana's not gonna shag you mate

Another user named @LeHumbleOpinion believes Dan Hooker is trying hard to keep his UFC contract by promoting the Power Slap League:

"Man is begging to keep his UFC contract"
@danthehangman Man is begging to keep his UFC contract

Fans were questioning the contradictory statements made by Hooker just a few days apart. @berkalog asked the UFC fighter how much Dana White paid him to tweet this out:

"How much did he paid u for this brotha??"
@danthehangman How much did he paid u for this brotha??

@themindartist was tempted to unfollow Hooker for his comments:

"Tempted to unfollow you now"
@danthehangman Tempted to unfollow you now

Take a look at some of the other tweets:

@danthehangman Like this tweet if you’re being held a gun point bro

@danthehangman Man that cte is really growing into you
@danthehangman If this is what it’s taking to keep the contract I’ll accept it

Dan Hooker is intrigued by the Power Slap League and explains why he likes it so much

Dan Hooker then went on to say that he had a lot of questions about how the Power Slap League works.

The league is currently surrounded by controversy as fight videos are going viral on the internet. In response, many have questioned the safety of the fighters. Some medical professionals have noted that the slap fighters are at a higher risk of developing problems such as CTE due to the continuous impact on the face.

Hooker tweeted out:

"I have so many questions, when do they weigh in? Do they get drug tested? How much do they get paid?"
I have so many questions, when do they weigh in? Do they get drug tested? How much do they get paid?

He then explained why he likes the Power Slap League:

"It’s like fighting but we skip the bullsh*t and get straight to the knockouts"
It’s like fighting but we skip the bullshit and get straight to the knockouts
