It is what it is. We’re human beings. Don’t jump in your f**king car and drive when you’be been drinking. You know, you have a couple of drinks and you’re like ‘I’m fine’.
You start driving and you get pulled over and you blow in that breathalyzer, and if it goes over a .8, you’re in trouble man. Let me tell you man, they don’t mess around with DUI’s. DUI’s are serious.
The guy made a mistake. The guy jumped in his car. I think everyone standing here, unless you don’t drink, has had a couple of drinks and jumped in their card and tried to drive home. It’s stupid. There’s no need for it. He’s got 50 guys out there that he’s training with that he could’ve called. He’s got money, he could have taken a taxi.
You know, it’s just one of those bad choices you make at that moment. And everybody that I’ve ever known that’s got a DUI, unless you’re a stone cold alcoholic lunatic, no one gets a second one man. You lose your license, you go through all that sh*t you gotta go through. So, he’s a good guy and I like him and respect him, and we’re gonna help him get through this.
I’m a realist. You know, you can’t expect all these people to be perfect. You put these athletes on this…you know, I understand that they’re role models and all these other things. They’re human beings man. They’re all gonna make mistakes. I’m one of those guys that believes that we’re all gonna make mistakes, and it’s how you handle it, handle yourself after you mad that mistake, tells who you really are.
* Although this took place two weeks ago, it will be interesting to see if Dana White has the same opinion about the recent arrest of UFC light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones.
