Dustin Poirier condemns Dana White for slapping his wife: “You should never put your hands on a woman.”

UFC athletes and collaborators are all in hot water – torn between condemning White and tip toeing around his horrendous behavior.

One athlete who wasn’t afraid to condemn White’s actions is Dustin Poirier. And while Poirier condemns what transpired he’s not sure what repercussions that should have on White’s career.

UFC president has faced criticism after TMZ published footage showing White striking his wife during a conflict on New Year’s Eve at a Cabo San Lucas nightclub. White swiftly apologized profusely for the event, but he has not yet been held accountable for his actions.

When questioned about the possible consequences White would face for his behavior, lightweight Dustin Poirier spoke on the matter in an interview with Bloody Elbow.

“Dude. (long pause) I’m not sure. I have no clue. You should never put your hands on a woman. I don’t know the repercussions that come along with somebody of his stature, running these businesses and doing something like that. I have no clue. It’s not a good look for sure.“

“I’m staying out of it because I’d be talking out my ass. I don’t know what should happen. I don’t know what should happen.”

As TBS pulled Power Slap from its schedule earlier this week, it seemed as if Dana White might finally experience some repercussions for the incident with his wife. The episode was supposed to run on January 11. TBS however said that they were just delaying the premiere episode by one week. It would be broadcast on January 18.

When asked about the idea of the Power Slap, Dustin Poirier said that he is not at all a fan of the concept.

“It’s more of a tough man competition type thing, you know. And I’m just not educated on the techniques of slapping somebody, so.”
