Dana White Says Stefan Struve is Doing Well Following Near-Fainting Spell
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.06.2014

Dana White addressed Stefan Struve's backstage incident at UFC 175. Struve had what the UFC called a "non-life-threatening, near-fainting spell" and his bout with Matt Mitrione was scratched. Check out the highlights:

White on Struve's career status: "I think it's something he really needs to think about. Obviously, you meet some of these guys that love to compete so much that they overlook certain things. I think tonight showed he's not one of those guys. He started to black out and have a panic attack, like there was something wrong with his heart again, I think. This is all just what I heard. I think he needs to do some soul-searching. He's a super-talented guy. He's a great guy. We love the guy, and we'll see where he goes from here."

UFC medical correspondent Jeff Davidson on what happened: "We took a look at him. Stefan had a near-fainting spell. He's doing great right now. That's the most important thing."

White on Struve's medical status before the show: "Every specialist and doctor has cleared him and checked him out, and the commission approved him. It reminds me of the (Evander) Holyfield thing. The guy's going to have to retire, and then he's back. I guess tonight, he had something like a panic attack. He started hyperventilating. He almost blacked out. His blood pressure dropped. It's just one of those weird things. I'm just glad he's OK."
