According to ClutchPoints, things took a wrong turn for UFC President Dana White while he spent New Year’s Eve in Cabo, Mexico with his family.
Sometime during the night, Dana and his wife, while sitting at a bar, apparently engaged in a heated discussion before Mrs. White suddenly slapped Dana in the face. Dana then unleashed his own slap to the face and followed it up with a few subsequent albeit minor-looking shots.
The melee was quickly halted as others got between them while White calmly turned away.
The UFC executive apologized and provided some insight into the incident:
“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.
“… This is just one of those situations that’s horrible. I’m embarrassed.”
“There was definitely a lot of alcohol involved, but that’s no excuse,” White responded. “I literally am making no excuses for this thing at all. It’s never happened before. It’s the first time that it’s ever happened. People are gonna say what they’re gonna say, it’s just is what it is. And whatever people do say, it’s deserved. I deserve it.”
But, should Dana be taking all of the criticism?
When is it right for a woman to physically unleash violence on a man and expect nothing in return? That’s called assault, isn’t it?
How about everyone, men and women, settling their differences verbally instead of resorting to violence?
Credit to Dana for using some restraint in the end as he didn’t press the action as much as he could have.
