Speaking on the Joe Rogan experience some time ago, UFC President Dana White discussed his struggles with Meniere’s disease and how he came to suffer from it.
Meniere’s disease is described as a disorder that affects the inner ear and causes episodes in which you feel as if you’re spinning.
White has suffered from the disease since he was 21 and he can, with absolute certainty, pinpoint the exact moment that caused the illness to inflict itself upon him.
‘When I was 21-years old, I lived in Boston and I got jumped one night at this bar. And these dudes beat the living shit out me for a good twenty minutes… until the police came.’
At one point, I remember I was on one knee and this fucking guy must have punched me in this ear a thousand times. I was getting kicked and hit from all kinds of directions. The guys were from Charlestown, I’m lucky I didn’t get stabbed. I’m lucky I just got the shit beat out of me.’
