Dana White suffers setback in battle with Meniere's Disease
UFC President Dana White was on hand in Ireland on Tuesday to accept an honorary award from Trinity College in Dublin and suffered a bad attack of Meniere's disease.
White's friend Nick "The Tooth" updated the public on the situation from his twitter:

White recently had surgery on his ear to combat the disease, which is known to cause vertigo, buzzing or ringing in the ear, and even hearing loss. One of the triggers for an attack is air travel, which White was guilty of, traveling overseas to Ireland.
Success rate for the the surgery is 70%, unfortunately, the UFC head-honcho may have fallen into the 30% range. However he is said to be "feeling better" since the attack.
