The police searched for the shooter who opened the fire outside a bar that he had just been refused entry to. He reportedly wounded eight people.
The incident started on Friday evening when a group of gunmen belonging to the shooter was denied access to a bar because they were drunk, said San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.
McManus said the shooter said, "Don't you know who I am? I'm a UFC fighter from California," before returning to his car, taking out "a long gun" and then walking back across the street and opening Fire.
"He met eight people," said McManus. "Everyone was transported to local hospitals."
White could only shake his head in disbelief at the incident and hoped that the man who claimed to be a UFC fighter was lying.
"How crazy is that?" White said after the fight at the UFC at ESPN 10 press conference. “This world is fishing bananas.
"Well, if you don't think I heard about it at 7:00 this morning, do you know what I mean? I hope it's not true."
