UFC president Dana White apologized for a physical altercation with his wife, but there’s been silence in other quarters since the video of the incident was published by TMZ on Monday.
ESPN — UFC’s broadcast and streaming partner — declined comment when reached by Front Office Sports on Tuesday. Endeavor, the parent company of UFC, and UFC haven’t returned messages seeking comment.
Anne White could be seen in the footage captured at a New Year’s Eve party at a Cabo San Lucas club slapping her husband of 26 years after Dana White said something to her. White then slapped his wife before the altercation was broken up.
“There was definitely a lot of alcohol involved, but that’s no excuse,” White told TMZ. “I am making no excuses for this at all. It’s never happened before. It was the first time. I don’t know why it happened. My wife and I apologized to each other. We apologized to our kids.”
