Dana White media scrum: Meniere's disease cured by stem cell treatment in Germany

Check out Thursday's media scrum video where Dana White discusses what cured his Meniere's disease and a ton of other topics.

Last year, UFC president Dana White revealed that he'd been diagnosed with the inner ear condition Meniere's Disease. The attacks he experienced were bad enough that he was unable to appear live at UFC On Fuel TV 3 last year, the first event he'd missed in 11 years. Since then, he's undergone two procedures to fight the disease, both of which failed to prevent attacks.

On Thursday, in preparation for UFC On Fox 7, White engaged in a media scrum where he announced that he's been cured of the disease after taking the advice of Alex Rodriguez (via MMA Mania):

"Well, A-Rod from the Yankees, hit me up and told me that when he was hurt Kobe called him and they both went to Germany and did this stem cell stuff. Right. So he says listen bro, I don't know if this is going to help you, but I'll tell you what it's worth a shot. Well long story short, we had the fight out in Sweden. I went to Germany. I got the stem cells. Dude, I am 100 percent cured. I am 100 percent a new guy, man. I'm working out again. I'm doing all the things that I used to do. I'm traveling. My life is back. All they do is they go in there, they take your blood, they incubate it, they spin it and add stuff to it. I don't know what the hell they do, I'm no scientist. I'm a million bucks now, man. I couldn't feel better."

The results must come as a huge relief to White, who's hectic lifestyle was seriously impacted by the disease. Check out the rest of the scrum video above where Dana covers a plethora of topics including the future of MMA in New York and what's next for Welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre.
