I trained with a guy who had such a ****ed up ear, the only time he would take the bandage off was to fight! His opponents kept tageting it as well!

I've got sore ears from BJJ training last night. Lots of headlocks and chokes makes it feel like your ears are popping.

I can't remember who had it in TUF 3 but i remember someone had it.

It was either Ed Herman or someont else, i know Ed either had the califlower ear or took the blood out of it with a needle.

I've had it before and it freakin sucks.

When i wrestled in state tourniment my senior year i was wrestling for 3rd place in the state and the guy had my head just grinded into the mat, which i believe was the reason the next day the left side of my face looked like i had been thai kicked about 50 times.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

The calliflower ear is caused by friction,grinding and folding of the ear.The swwelling comes after the skin and cartlidge seperate giving blood and stuff a place to collect.I had a small bit from wrestling in highschool.Its only getting worse with the way I train in martial arts now.
The only prevention is to constantly wear head gear and that's no garentee.
