    Been back training full-time for only two weeks and damn I'm getting Cauliflower ear already in both ears one worse than the other. Its small but I can see the red spots and the blood building up and if I have one more roll I'm pretty sure it will bust. This is the first time this has happen to my ears and I want to stop it before it gets out of hand.

    Spent hours today going to store and all they had were the dumb wrestling ones and I can't use them because I will be getting my head caught in subs all day. I saw a guy in my gym with a BJJ ear guard that is total different than the bulky wrestling ones. I been looking online but can't find nothing please help me. I'm taking tomorrow of from the gym to let my ear heal a bit. Please if you guys know any place i can find them I truly need your help. I typed in BJJ ear guard in google and nothing comes up just the wrestling ones!

    I recommend the Asics gel models. They are pretty soft and smooth for earguards. I only wear them when my ears are getting sore though, so I don't need them all the time.

    Well, first you should go to a doctor to get them drained (if you don't know how to properly do it yourself).
    Then take a bit of time off to heal. You could also go to class and skip the rolling part, so you don't even have to stop training and get fat.
    Then start wearing ear-guards.

    I have Brute Quad III ear guard and they are awesome. They have a very low profile and are plastic, so they cannot collapse in. My training partners have never complained. I've also tried basic Asics ear guards which weren't bad either, but the Brute Quad III were definitely the best.

    I think you can find them on ebay.
