Dana White Receives Honorary Award In Dublin, Suffers Meniere’s Attack At Ceremony

UFC president Dana White is in Dublin, Ireland this week to receive an honorary award from Trinity College. Yesterday, Dana he arrived in Dublin with sidekick Nick the Tooth, and spent the evening hanging out with Irish fans at the local Temple Bar. Today, he attended a ceremony at Trinity College to accept an honorary award, where he delivered an acceptance speech to the crowd. While the ceremony was taking place, Dana suffered a bad bout of Meniere’s Disease. He has been battling with this disease for some time now, and recently underwent surgery to help repair it. As you can see in the twitter post above, Dana seems to be okay, and Nick the Tooth tells his followers they will “be back soon”.

In case you aren’t familiar with Meniere’s Disease, it is an inner ear disorder that affects balance and hearing. Severe dizziness and vertigo are common symptoms, and they can be intensified after air travel (high altitude). There is no known cure for the disease, but it can be treated with medication, surgery, and lifestyle changes.

    DAMN THAT SUCKS BIG TIME. THAT HAS TO BE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE & VERY FRUSTRATING AT THE SAME TIME. HOPE DW GETS & FEELS BETTER.

  2. dave says:

    Get Well Dana! Take a little rest before you fly back, or hop a ship!

  3. GET RID OF FITCH says:

    All the flying around the world cannot be doing his meniers disease any good. Doesn’t sound like that surgury was a complete success afterall. Wish Dana the best but i think at some point eh may have to slow it down and stay grounded for awhile

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      MMA is where it is today because of Dana White PERIOD.

      Whether you love him or hate him without Dana’s passion and hard work MMA would still be in dark ages

  5. Padjo says:

    We spent half the night the night before looking for them and hours again last night waiting on Dana, there was even some talk about it being a bluff.
    Hope he has a speedy recovery, I was genuinely looking forward to seeing Dana and hearing some stories.

    Feel better big man
