• Dana White & His Wife Issue Statement After Video Of Them Slapping Each Other Goes Viral

UFC President Dana White and his wife Anne spent their New Year’s Eve in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

They got into an argument with each other, which resulted in Anne slapping Dana, and Dana slapping her back.

This incident was caught on camera and released by TMZ. You can watch it below:

Dana had the following to say about his incident:

“My wife and I were out on Saturday night on New Year’s Eve, and unfortunately that’s what happened. I’m one of the guys, you’ve heard me say for years, there’s never, ever an excuse for guy to put his hands on a woman, and now here I am on TMZ talking about it.

My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years, we’ve known each other since we were 12 years old. We’ve obviously been through some sh*t together, we’ve got 3 kids and this is one of those situations that’s horrible, I’m embarrassed, but it’s also one of those situations that right now, we’re more concerned about our kids.

We have 3 kids and obviously since the video popped up, we’ve shown the kids the video. We’re more focused on our family right now. People are going to have opinions on this, and most of the people’s opinions would be right, especially in my case. You don’t put your hands on a woman ever.

My wife and I love each other, we’ve been together for a very long time. We’ve known each other since we were very little, and this is just one of those unfortunate situations.

There was definitely a lot of alcohol involved, but that’s no excuse. I literally am making no excuses for this at all. It’s never happened before. It’s the first time that it’s ever happened, and people are going to say what they’re going to say. It is what it is, and whatever people do say is deserved. I deserve it. It happened. I don’t know why it happened.

My wife and I have apologized to each other. We’ve apologized to our kids, and this is one of those things where everybody is going to chime in. I could care less what anybody else thinks about this. Right now what we’re more concerned about are our kids and taking care of our family.

That was the beginning of it and the end of it. We’re still on vacation. We’re obviously best friends, she’s my wife and we had too much to drink, and whatever happened that night happened. That was it and it was done.

Obviously, it’s one of those situations, it’s embarrassing for both of us but what we’re more concerned about is our kids. Nobody knows you better than your kids know you. They grow up in your house, they see everything, they hear everything, they know everything.

Everybody always asks me questions about do I care about this, do I care about that? My legacy and all this other stuff with work doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s all about your family. It’s about your wife and kids.

This situation, too, everybody’s going to have an opinion. We’re just worried about our family and focused on our kids right now. But me and my wife are cool, we’re good.”

Anne issued the following statement about this situation:

“Dana and I have been married for almost 30 years. 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.”
