UFC president Dana White has made it his mission to fly from state-to-state or country-to-country to never miss an event put on by the UFC.
However, not even White could get himself to Virginia for Tuesday night’s UFC on FUEL TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier card.
On his Twitter account, White confirmed that he would miss the event due to surgery in Los Angeles. White made it known that he has Meniere’s disease, which is a condition where fluid in the ear gets too high. It is a severe case of Vertigo.

While some may disagree with White on a number of subjects, there is no denying that the access he has granted the MMA media and fans is second-to-none. So, we hope nothing but a successful surgery and speedy recovery for White.
