UFC President Dana White and his wife Anne White have been the talk of the town lately. Not long ago, a video of the couple from their new year’s eve celebration in Mexico went viral on social media.
The video showed the two of them slapping each other. In the clip, Dana and his wife Anne can be seen involved in a physical altercation while partying in the VIP section of El Squid Roe in Cabo San Lucas, but they were quickly separated.
In the video, Anne can be seen slapping Dana on his face, and soon after, he slapped his wife twice. Post the incident, Dana had a chat with TMZ and he told the media outlet, “My wife and I were out for New Year’s Eve, and, unfortunately, that’s what happened.”
It further read, “I’m one of the guys, 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. My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years. We’ve known each other since we were almost 12 years old. We’ve obviously been through some sh*t together and we’ve got three kids, and this is one of those situations that’s horrible.”
He further added, “I’m embarrassed, but it’s also one of those situations where we’re more concerned about our kids. We have three kids, and obviously, since the video popped up, we’ve shown the kids the video and we’re more focused on our family right now.”
On the other hand, Anne told the media outlet, “Dana and I have been married for almost 30 years. To say this is out of character for him is an understatement – nothing like this has ever happened before.”
She further added, “Unfortunately, we were both drinking too much on New Year’s Eve and things got out of control, on both sides. We’ve talked this through as a family and apologized to each other. I just hope people will respect our privacy for the sake of our kids.”

Anne White has stayed with her husband Dana White through it all
Yeah, you read that right. Anne’s loyalty to her husband Dana White has been tested in the last couple of years. It seems like Dana may actually be keeping his wife Anne away from the flashing cameras for good. In 2011, his mom June White claimed in her biography, that her son had been unfaithful to his wife Anne.
As per Distractify, while promoting her book Through A Mother’s Eyes, The Dana White Story: An Unauthorized Biography, June alleged that he often had affairs with “ring girls” and that he even had a relationship with his sister-in-law. She referred to her son as “egotistical” and “self-centered.” Up until now, Dana has never made an official comment on his mom’s remarks.
In April 2020, Dana’s name popped up in a lawsuit involving an alleged sex tape extortion plan. According to Essentially Sports, there were rumors of a sex tape involving White and a dancer he met in Brazil. Dana is not afraid of lawsuits since he has an insane amount of money.
A man named Ernesto Joshua Ramos was arrested for trying to extort $200,000 from Dana. In April 2020, a lawsuit was filed against Dana as Ernesto claimed that the UFC president paid him off to plead guilty to extortion charges years earlier.
In his statement, Dana said, “I just found out that a bulls–t lawsuit was filed against me yesterday. This guy went to federal prison for trying to extort me over five years ago. Now he’s hired a lawyer who is also a convicted felon, and he’s trying to extort me again for $10 million.”
White went on to say, “He got no money from me last time and he won’t be getting any money from me this time. I look forward to the court dismissing this quickly so I can get rid of these scumbags forever.”
