Controversies struck Dana White after the scandal of him slapping his wife went public.
Dana White is renowned as the combat sports industry’s top business brain. The rise of MMA in combat sports is attributable to the UFC President, who has been with the organization for many years.
White is best known as the current President of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), an MMA organization.
His personal life developed concurrently with the expansion of his business. Most people are aware of UFC president Dana White’s life, but few are aware of his wife’s. The UFC President married Anne Stella White.
Dana White Slapping Scandal
While on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, last month, UFC president Dana White was caught on camera slapping his wife, Anne.
The video, which TMZ made public on Monday, shows White and his wife, Anne, fighting at a New Year’s Eve nightclub in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The video cuts to Anne after 5 seconds, who is visibly upset and has her hands over her face. She tries to flee as White gets closer, but he grabs her by the wrist.
Anne then punched her husband. And White made a cowardly decision at that precise moment. She received two slaps to the face from White, who then pushed her to the ground as if she were a punk from the streets rather than the mother of his three kids.
White admitted to his actions in an interview and wrote it off as a heated exchange between two people who have known each other since childhood.
Why Did Dana White Slap His Wife, Anne Stella White?
Dana White, the head of the UFC, struck his wife in the face, and the ugly incident was recorded on video.

White admitted that they both overindulged in alcohol on New Year’s Eve, which caused things to spiral out of control. He added that they had a family discussion about it and expressed their regrets.
In an interview with TMZ, White expressed his “embarrassment” and concern for the impact on his three children. White and the UFC, according to Chris Costello, would not provide a statement to The Associated Press.
