Jamahal Hill is gearing up to fight Glover Teixeira for the light heavyweight title next month but instead of preparing for the biggest fight of his life, he’s defending Dana White.
On Monday video surfaced of White and his wife Anne in a physical altercation where they are seen slapping each other. The video shows Dana holding her arm by her hand before she slaps him on the face, he then slaps her back twice and appears to stomp or kick in her direction before they are separated.

And, “The clown is the dummy who’s being a punching bag for somebody who clearly don’t respect u miss me with that shit!! Everybody is held accountable in my book.”

“They want equality but then we suppose to take the high ground no we human to bruh,” he said. And how Anne should have acted better.
“She should of acted like a real women with respect and class!!” he said.
Dana White slap apology
After the video was released White issued a statement apologizing for his behavior.
“You’ve heard me say over the years, ‘There is 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. “My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years. We’ve known each other since we were 12 years old. We’ve obviously been through some s— together. We’ve got three kids.
“This is one of those situations that’s horrible, I’m embarrassed — but it’s also one of those situations that right now 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.
“I’m literally making no excuses for this thing at all. It’s never happened before. It’s the first time it’s ever happened. People are going to say what they’re going to say and it is what is. Whatever people say is deserved. I deserve it.”
