Jeremy Stephens (20-8), Jon Jones (17-1) and Ian McCall (11-3-1) are just some of the UFC names who have been arrested over the last three months. While Dana White always stands by his fighters, he recently revealed that during his youth he had a few run-ins with the law himself.
“Yes, I was arrested a few times,” said White to TATAME. “Nobody ever asked me that before, but I’ve been arrested for assault. Always got into fights as a child, street fights and drinking as a minor.”
His answer can be seen as just another example of White’s attempted honesty, which people have credited him for and pointed the finger of doubt. While the crimes White may have committed were as a youth, he is clear to state that they were petty crimes and it was a long time ago.
“But I never stole any bank or anything like that,” said White.
White should be present at tonight’s UFC 154 event from Canada.
