In a UFC press briefing, Dana White commented on the incident.
“It was obviously a horrible personal experience and there are no excuses for it, it is something that I have to deal with and live with for the rest of my life. The people that are defending me, there is never an excuse. You guys have read some of the same stuff that I have seen, there is no defense for this and people should not be defending me.”
“What should the repercussions be you tell me, I take 30 days off how does that hurt me? Me leaving hurts the company, hurts my employees, and hurts the fighters. It doesn’t hurt me and what is my punishment? Here is my punishment, I am going to walk around however long if it is 10years or even 25 years it will be how I will be labeled now. My other punishment is that I know a lot of people whether it be media, fighters, friends or acquaintances who had respect for me might not have respect for me now.”
