It does for me. Granted, I've only been rolling for a short while now, but my ears are hardly scathed by the hands of my opponents.

Your response may have been sarcastic, but I really have no idea thanks to the indecipherable internet.

Kimbo is targetting Thompson's cauliflower ear but i think its not smart to do that because it wont be able to stop the fight,it will just make the ear bleed, Kimbo should focus on the Jaw not on the cauliflower ear

Prob just some tape on the ear should stop it from happening. Sakuraba always had tape on his ear right? Wrestling practice means your head getting held a lot, the constant friction causes cauliflower ears. Rugby players get it too.

Cauliflower ear is a sign of experience so most fighters don't want to get rid of it.

I see it as a sign of experience
although the fighters that do want it to be unnoticeable should be able to get their own little after fight treatment.

Grapplers and wrestlers actually get it the worst because of the constant rubbing and twisting that their ears are subjected to. A strike can deffinetly cause cauliflower ear but its even easier to tear the skin from the cartilidge while trying to escape from a hold or clinch.

I boxed and wrestled when I was younger and while I never got cauliflower ear from boxing I did get it from wrestling.
Yeah, rugby players will get it if they don't tape up or wear headgear when they go into scrums.
