TwitPic: Dana White is finally heading to Los Angeles to undergo surgery for Meniere's Disease. He then plans to walk out of the operating room and onto a plane to Brazil to catch UFC on FX 7 this weekend. For more on White's dizzying battle with vertigo click here.
Dana White's birthday is today (Sat., July 28) and the timing couldn't be better with this being a rare weekend without a UFC event. He was born in Manchester, Connecticut, in 1969, which makes him 43-years-old. You Maniacs can wish him the best on his Twitter right here. I'm just wondering how one would shop for a gift for a guy like White. What does one get for a man who seemingly has it all? Have fun with that question in the comments section below.

Despite the fact that Takeya Mizugaki lost a unanimous decision to Chris Cariaso on the FX broadcasted portion of the UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" preliminary card last night (Sat., Feb. 25, 2012) in Saitama, Japan, he was still paid his win bonus. That's because UFC President Dana White felt Mizugaki was the rightful winner of the bout and compensated him accordingly.
When Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) first hit the FOX airwaves for UFC on FOX 1: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos," company President Dana White and the now retired Brock Lesnar served as booth analysts. So who's handling duties for UFC on FOX 2? That would be retired former heavyweight champion Randy Couture and current light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Anyone excited to see "The Natural" back in the fold as an analyst for FOX?
