Here is what fans had to say:

  • He literally slapped slap league to death
  • Slap back to reality
  • I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Dana’s reputation on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched Power Slap glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
  • Should have named it White’s Power Slap for that Dana White Privilege to kick in.
  • Dana is the first and last power slap champion
  • Dana gonna start “kick the crotch” league next . This was definitely the stupidest modern sport ever invented.
  • I was perplexed the first time that I saw it advertised. It seems like something that I would watch for five minutes on YouTube and then forget about.
  • Dana’s bout was ruled a no contest due to Dana’s slapping his opponent multiple times in a row. Clearly a rule violation.

Molly Qerim stood in support of Dana White

While many personalities criticized the UFC boss for the incident, there were some who knew White well enough to stand beside him in support. One among such people was the famous TV personality, Molly Qerim.

Qerim reasoned that the altercation happened under the influence of alcohol. Alcohol indeed brings out the worst in many people. Furthermore, she declared that it was not wise to judge someone on the basis of their worst moments. Nonetheless, she let the world know that White has got some friends backing him up.
