    UFC president Dana White is scheduled to undergo a procedure today in Los Angeles for a condition called Meniere's disease, which affects 50,000 to 100,000 people per year.

    Because of the procedure – which ideally will eliminate some of the symptoms he's had for the past few months – White had to skip last night's UFC on FUEL TV 3 event in Fairfax, Va.

    It's the first UFC show White couldn't attend in an 11-year span that's included 168 consecutive events under the current Zuffa LLC ownership.

    The most common symptoms of Meniere's disease are intense dizziness or vertigo, lack of balance, and hearing loss. The exact cause of Meniere's is not known, but it's believed to be related to an increase in fluid pressure of the inner ear, which is the body's equilibrium center.

    Meniere's may develop as a result of head trauma, middle or inner ear infection, allergies, recent viral illness, fatigue and stress – just to name a few.

    An attack of Meniere's can be quite debilitating – causing sudden loss of balance, decrease in hearing, profound dizziness, nausea, vomiting and severe sweating.
