    For those who missed it, Max Griffin threw a Hellbow that almost detached the ear of Ramiz Brahimaj at UFC Vegas 13. The bout had to be stopped approximately 2 mins into round 3.

    Check out this nastiness, yuck.

    I am completely convince some of these guys give them selves cauliflower ear on purpose, I wrestled for 10+ years and all I have is the smallest pieces in the center of one of my ears. Some of these young guys, and even more so the women who with out a doubt aren't getting hit as hard in the ears as men, should not have the amount of cauliflower ear that they have.

    You heard it hear first, the newest sherdog conspiracy, fighters are giving themselves cauliflower ear on purpose.

    Well it is definitely avoidable as many fighters don’t have it. They probably wear ear protection though.

    Antonio Carlos Junior said in a video that some people(like him) have soft ear cartilages, that doesn't break often, so they don't get couliflower ears.

    Or maybe it's the fact that people have different genetics, and some people develop cauliflower ear more easily than others?

    But I do enjoy the conspiracy.

    We never used head gear in practice, the only way you get the gnarly cauliflower ear is by grinding it against someone elses head or, surprisingly to some, from hips. When shooting takedowns you use your head to push their body to the side, like how you get taught not to drive straight back but to cut the corner when going for a double. When you hit the ground theres sometimes a pretty good impact on your head from their hip bone if you land in a weird way. Other than that I guess elbows or punches and kicks will do it I'm just not convinced some of these fighters, the chicks especially, have put in as much work as someone who is an Olympic caliber wrestler like Mark Coleman, that's the kind of person who I would say earned to have the ugliest ears in the world and yet he doesn't even have cauliflower ear!

    I mean, it's titled properly, so what's the problem?

    See above.

    Renowned MMA journalist Steve-O thinks there should be a bonus for making someone’s ear explode.

    I got “black belt level cauliflower ear” and I was more of a striker.

    it started from getting out of a guillotine and crushing my ear when popping my head out. It got worse from sparring and punches to an already compromised ear. It'll swell back up after any contact and needs to be drained again.


    The reason these guys have ears that pop is because they don’t drain them and they’re still full of blood. If I never drained my ear it would be puffy like that but it hard to deal with having a massive ear

    That makes sense about the guillotine, a similar situation happens with wresters in the front headlock position. I guess maybe that's what is causing younger guys to have it is the bjj.

    Watching this live was an "oh shit" moment. The ear jus tore and flopped over and jiggled.

    Ramiz was like naw dawg I'm good to fight.
