Will Dana White cut Overeem if he's found guilty?


Dana White cut former UFC fighter Maiquel Falcao due to backlash over the legal troubles Falcao faced due to his part in the assault on a female in a Brazilian nightclub. Falcao was a promising prospect for the promotion who is notorious for sharing a bizarre fight with Gerald "The Hurricane" Harris in which the latter fighter was cut (I argue unjustly) after their lackluster performance.

Given that Alistair Overeem is currently facing a battery charge for allegedly shoving a woman's face and causing her to stagger back, I'm curious if White will actually display some manner of consistency when dealing with Overeem and cut him as well.

When Roger Huerta's epic street fight when viral Dana White said the following regarding men who put their hands on women: "In no way do I condone street fighting, but when a guy puts his hands on a woman he deserves to be knocked the f*ck out. Good for Roger."

Will Dana follow through or will we be fed some circular logic similar to the bat-shit crazy logic he used to rationalize cutting Miguel Torres for his rape joke while sparing Rashad Evans and Forrest Griffin the same treatment.

It is worth noting that Torres was reinstated and that Overeem has not been convicted of anything so he may be innocent, that said I doubt White will cut the Demolition Man even if found guilty because of his monetary value to the promotion. It would be in the sport's best interest if Dana White were consistent in his decisions to discipline fighters since it seems the regulation of out of ring fighter behavior is conducted somewhat arbitrarily.
