UFC President Dana White suffers "bad attack" at the Trinity Awards earlier today in Dublin, Ireland, according to friend and travel companion Nick "The Tooth." Has his Meniere's Disease returned with a vengeance? Details are sketchy, but we'll keep you updated as the situation develops.
Not looking good for the big guy.

Interesting. Sounds like he was robbed or something. Do we know if this was a medical emergency?

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

It's his Meniere's Disease but this could mean he has to stop traveling which could end his career.

When Chael retires, UFC can hire him to take Dana's place. The big guy needs to take it easy. It's not worth his health.

**** Nick the Tooth.

The type of surgery he had was an intrusive surgery done to preserve his hearing which is the alternative surgery that they did by cutting the nerve to his balance.

His brain is altered and causes bits of vertigo while he's recovering.

He just recently had the surgery so this will happen from time to time.

From his twitter.

Probably just had a bad vertigo moment and fell or something.
