During the first clip for the usual round of "fight week" video blogs leading into the weekend, Dana White is giving the public a bedside view of his recent ear surgery to combat his Meniere's disease.
Apparently, the surgery was a complete success.
Now the UFC president just has to see if the procedure makes his life any easier.
According to Mayo Clinic, Meniere's disease is "a disorder of the inner ear that causes spontaneous episodes of vertigo" in its victims.
Aside from bouts of vertigo, it can also induce nausea, vomiting, hearing loss, ringing in the ear and/or increased pressure in the ear—all symptoms that affect the UFC president far more than the usual patient, especially with his consistent time spent flying around the world.
However, the surgery shown above is one proven tactic used to combat the ailment, with doctors removing small portion of bone from the endolymphatic sac and inserting an artificial tube that drains excess fluid from the inner ear.
Dana White's mandatory recovery time prevented him from being present at UFC on FX 7, but it is assumed he will be in attendance for UFC on Fox 6 this Saturday at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
