UFC president Dana White seen on video slapping his wife

LAS VEGAS (AP) — UFC President Dana White was seen on video posted by TMZ slapping his wife, Anne, while the two were vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on last month.

White told TMZ in an interview on Tuesday that he was “embarrassed” and concerned about how his three children have been affected.

“You’ve heard me say for years, ‘There’s never an excuse for a man to get his hands on a woman,’ and now I’m on TMZ talking about it,” White told the site. website.

UFC spokesman Chris Costello said neither the organization nor White would release a statement to The Associated Press. Costello referenced White’s comments to TMZ.

The video shows the couple arguing before Anne White slaps her husband, who slaps the face before others intervene.

“Dana and I have been married for almost 30 years,” Anne White said in a statement to TMZ. “To say it’s not like 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 talked about it family and we apologized. I just hope people will respect our privacy for the sake of our children.
