UFC superstar Nate Diaz once released a stunning video of himself Stockton slapping UFC President Dana White. The video quickly grew viral, leaving many curious as to why the incident occurred in the first place.
Speaking on the UFC Unfiltered podcast, Dana White provided some backstory on the slap. The UFC President revealed that the incident was orchestrated by himself and was simply meant to be an added bit of promotion for the Stockton native.
“So what was happening is, we had just left and were heading back to the arena and we were on Crenshaw, and there was a place called the Turf Motel. It just came to me, I said pull the truck over, I want Nate to slap me.
“And Nate looked at me like, what the f*ck? You should have seen the look on his face when I said that. And then we pulled over and he started slapping away.”
