Sean O’Malley thinks Dana White’s wife ‘deserves a slapping back’ in altercation.
In the footage you can see Anne and Dana arguing and Dana places his hand on her hand, she then slaps him and he slapped her back twice and appears to stomp or kick in her direction before the pair are separated.
“I feel bad for Dana. His wife slapped him,” O’Malley said on his YouTube channel. “That is rude and it deserves a slapping back,” O’Malley said (when his brother said she did not deserve to get hit back). “I don’t know it’s a tricky one. It’s like, treat people how you want to be treated. I don’t think, sober, would he have done that? No. I would assume sober, no drinks, she slaps him, I don’t think his initial reaction is to slap back. When that alcohol’s flowing, I’ve never hit a girl, but I’ve been blacked out and I’ve done things that I can’t believe I’ve done. What if that was his like, f**k, he did and was like, I don’t know. I don’t think it was right. Obviously, you should not hit, especially a little girl like that. But, alcohol is flowing and she hit him first.”
Some believe the comment was in jest, others aren’t so sure.

He went on to comment about the release of the video and Dana’s apology, which he feels was genuine.
“This happened New Year’s and it came out Monday which is rare. TMZ s**t usually comes out instantly,” O’Malley said. “They got good PR behind (them). He came out with an apology which I watched. I thought he said everything he needed to say but it seemed genuine. God, it’s hard with alcohol. There’s two things, alcohol and chicks don’t mix. You know what I mean.”
Another fighter to stand up for Dana was UFC light heavyweight title challenger Jamahal Hill who tweeted support for his boss.
“If you don’t want to get hit nobody period!!! #Simple.” He then followed that tweet up with several more comments. “They worked things out between them about the relationship so get out they business like y’all mfs perfect.”
