UFC present Dana White was seen slapping his wife on New Year's eve in a nightclub in Mexico.

Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) business, and his wife, Anne, attended a New Year’s Eve party in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on Saturday, Dec. 31.. During the party, the two reportedly got into a heated altercation. As the argument escalated, Anne White slapped Dana White. He then slapped her back, Yahoo News reported.

A video of the assault has gone viral on social media sites. In the viral video, White and his wife can be seen standing on the balcony of a VIP room at El Squid Roe in Cabo San Lucas.

Following this, what looked like heated words between the two, Anne can be seen hitting White across the face after he grabbed her left wrist. After Anne slapped him, White then retaliated by striking his wife before other members of the party intervened, BBC reported.

After the video of the assault went viral online, Media and entertainment company Endeavor saw its shares fall on Tuesday. Endeavor shares closed down nearly 6%.

"There was a lot of alcohol involved, but that's no excuse," White said.

"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 that after the incident, he and his wife had apologized to their three children.

"My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years, we've known each other since we were 12 years old. This is one of those situations that is horrible; I'm embarrassed. Right now, we're more concerned about our kids. Since the video popped up, we've shown the kids the video. We're more focused on our family right now," White added.

White helped convince brothers Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta to purchase the UFC for $2m in 2001. After the purchase, White was named president of the company. After 20 years, the brothers sold the company in 2021 for more than $4bn. At the time the company was sold, White reportedly owned nearly 10% of the company.

White has also overseen the rise of MMA as a mainstream sport and has been president of the UFC since 2001.
