UFC President Dana White is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in the MMA world. Being the president, there is obviously a level of etiquette and levelheaded decisions one can expect from someone of that stature. However, Dana White ended up making headlines for slapping his wife. Due to this, he has been mercilessly trolled online.
As previously reported, Dana White and his wife got physical with each other on New Year’s Eve, shocking fans at the Cabo San Lucas nightclub.
Due to Dana White being such a big name, there was no doubt that many people would react to this incident. Unsurprisingly, Dana White was relentlessly trolled. MMA insider John Nash commented on White leading the charge as head of Power Slap League.
My only slap fighting comments — I have no clue what people will accept anymore but one would think that Dana White could not be used as the head of slap league after a domestic violence incident with his wife. And I’m not sure a slap league without his involvement is viable.
Oh damn. I thought it was the new embedded for the Slap league.
Dana White being the type of guy to hit a woman is the least surprising thing ever.
By tomorrow, the ‘media’ will be the real problem, not Dana White beating his wife.
Sellouts will be competing to see who can make smacking her multiple times sound as harmless as possible.
This is freaking awful. I’m very curious how Endeavor, the UFC, and ESPN will respond.”
Dana White already made it clear he deeply regrets the incident and will be a better person from now on. Regardless, we certainly hope White never slaps his wife again.
