BREAKING NEWS: UFC boss Dana White apologizes for slapping his wife in the face at a bar during a New Year’s Eve party in Mexico
Dana White has apologized after he was filmed slapping his wife Anne in the face during an argument at a club in Mexico on New Year’s Eve.
The UFC boss told TMZ of the incident: “My wife and I were out on New Year’s Eve on Saturday night. Unfortunately that happened.
“I’m one of those guys who says there’s never an excuse for a man to put his hands on a woman, and now I’m talking about it here on TMZ.
“It’s one of those horrible situations. I’m embarrassed. We have three children and since the video surfaced we have shown it to the children and are now more focused on our family.
“People will have their opinion on this and people’s opinion would be right, especially in my case. You never attack a woman.”
His wife Anne, to whom White has been married for 26 years, is quoted by TMZ as saying: “To say this is out of character for him is an understatement – nothing like this has happened before.
“Unfortunately we both drank too much on New Year’s Eve and things got out of hand on both sides. We discussed this as a family and we apologized to each other.
