After footage surfaced of former Baltimore Ravens running back assaulting his fiancee in an elevator, Dana White was recently asked for his opinion on how the NFL has handled the unfortunate situation.
In the wake of footage surfacing of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice assaulting his fiance, UFC president Dana White was asked for his opinion on how National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell has handled the situation.
“It’s a tough one,” White said Wednesday night on FOX Sports Live. “First of all the video is horrifying. Absolutely horrifying. You’re talking about a guy who’s been in the fight business since he was 19 years old. It is the most disturbing thing you will ever see. The thing that’s just as bad as the punch is that he shows no remorse after he does it. You know, if you did something in anger and you go, ‘Oh my god. What did I do?’ There’s none of that with this guy. I don’t know all the ins and outs of what Roger Goodell did or knew or how it was handled but it’s definitely bad. I can tell you this: I wouldn’t want to be Roger Goodell.”
White was then asked to react to comments made by boxer Floyd Mayweather, who served two months in jail in 2012 after pleading guilty to domestic battery.
Mayweather: “I think there’s a lot worse things that go on in other people’s households, also, It’s just not caught on video. That’s safe to say. I wish Ray Rice nothing but the best.”
“What do you say to that? I mean, what do you even say to that? It’s asinine,” White said. “I don’t even know what to say to that.”
