UFC president Dana White shared a video on social media to promote his new slap-fighting league on Tuesday, less than a fortnight after footage emerged of him slapping his wife in the face on New Year’s Eve.
The 53-year-old was filmed slapping his partner Anne in the face during a row as the couple celebrated the turn of the year at El Squid Roe in Cabo San Lucas.
The debut of White’s new Power Slap League was delayed as a result, following plenty of backlash and a grovelling apology from the UFC chief.

Revealing that the league will now commence on January 18, as opposed to its initial launch on January 11, White tweeted a promotional video of athletes slapping each other to the floor.
The American insisted in November that the new TBS show will help the ‘sport of slap fighting go to a whole new level’.
In his apology last week, White said: ‘I am one of the guys who says there is never, ever an excuse for a guy to put his hands on a woman and now here I am on TMZ talking about it.

‘This is one of those situations that is horrible. I am embarrassed. We have three kids and since the video popped up, we have shown the kids and we are more focused on our family right now.
‘People are going to have their opinions on this and people’s opinions would be right, especially in my case. You don’t put your hands on a woman, ever.’
In response to White’s promotional tweet, fans piled in to slam and ridicule the UFC president.

One Twitter user wrote: ‘Hmm yeah, too soon too soon.’
Referring to the incident between White and his wife, a second account tweeted: ‘I thought the first episode debuted on New Year’s Eve.’
Another chimed in and said: ‘Seems like you’re ready for the season with the practice!’
A fourth person tweeted: ‘Sorry Dana, but I do not see why anyone would want to compete or watch this’.
