its called coliflour ear (i cant spell)

thats what happens when you get hit in your ears to much or they take to much stress from fighting.

Sometimes my ears just hurt while grappling from squezing my head through a choke or something similar.

In TUF2 one of the heavyweights had terrible cauliflower ears in his last fight and the pain from that contributed to him losing the fight. they were blown up like balloons, purple and bleeding.....ouch!!!!!

Wrestlers have this problem frequently as do boxers.. makes sense it would show up in MMA.. Would Wrestling style head gear be allowed? I know it might give your opponent a hand hold but if someone were concerend about this it would offer protection?

Grapplers generally have bad cauliflower ears.

If you grapple enough and people fight for head control on you, it won't matter if you have headgear or not. It comes from constant friction caused by prolonged contact to the ear. The inside of the ear bruises and begins to fill up with liquid, causing deformation of the cartilage. It's very common in lots of grapplers (I've seen Judo and Ju-Jitsu guys with cauliflower ear). But I've also seen receptionists get it from prolonged used of phone handsets, which is the reason why they usually use headsets now.
