UFC President Dana White has been caught on camera slapping his wife, Anne White, at a club in Mexico on New Year’s Eve.
And, even though White emphasized that he is sorry and that there were no excuses for what he has done, he admitted that there will be no punishment for it.
He shared this during the first public press conference after the incident:
Nobody’s happy about this. Neither am I. But it happened, and I have to deal with it. And what is my punishment? Here’s my punishment: I’ve got to walk around for however long I live — is it 10.4 years, or is it another 25 years — and this is how I’m labeled now.
My other punishment is that, I’m sure a lot of people, whether it be media, fighters, friends, acquaintances, who had respect for me, might not have respect for me now.
Dana White’s punishment will be to “live with it”:
There’s a lot of things that I’m going to have to deal with for the rest of my life that are way more of a punishment than what, I take a 30-day [or a] 60-day absence? That’s not a punishment to me.
The punishment is that I did it, and now I have to deal with it.
