UFC president Dana White was in Ireland today to accept an honorary award at Trinity College. White recently had surgery to "repair" his inner-ear disorder known as Meniere's Disease, apparently suffered a "bad attack" during the ceremony, which his good friend "Nick the Tooth" relayed via Twitter earlier today.

Those affected by this disease frequently experience random bouts of vertigo, hearing loss, and/or loud ringing or buzzing sounds in at least one ear. White has battled with Meniere's since 2011. There have been no further comments or reports from either NickTheTooth or Dana White.
