Video of Ultimate Fighting Championship Pesident, Dana White slapping his wife of 30 years, Anne hashas taken rounds on social media.
The UFC President slapped Anne while the couple was on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
As he issued an apology, White shared his embarrassment and concern for the effect it caused on their three children.
“You’ve heard me say for years, ‘There’s never ever an excuse for a guy to put his hands on a woman,’ and now here I am on TMZ talking about it,” White said.
UFC spokesman Chris Costello have been silent on the issue.
The video shows the couple arguing before Anne White slaps her husband, who slaps back before others intervene.
In a statement, the wife justified the act, “To say this is out of character for him is an understatement — nothing like this has ever happened before. Unfortunately, we were both drinking too much on New Year’s Eve and things got out of control on both sides. We’ve talked this through as a family and apologized to each other. I just hope people will respect our privacy for the sake of our kids.”
