Cauliflower Ears

i always see this things and many MMA fighters have this, IMO all the Org.s should have a mandatory after fight treatment on this, Fighters are still human and have the right to look good on their Fans....

The fighters may not want it. Most dudes see it as a sign of experience, a lot of them pride themselves on it.

There's not all that much you can do about cauliflower ear bro. You can drain it but there's no gaurantee that it will look normal afterwards.

Like Gluteal Cleft said, most of these guys look at it as a sign of experience so they don't mind having it.

You'll get cauliflower ears just training wrestling, if it's a big part of your game it's pretty inevitable. Well unless you wear head gear or something...

Honestly Most fighters enjoy the look it proves that you were in there giving ti your all its like a battle wound. Randy stated many times before that he is proud to have them that shows people that he will always give it his all in the cage.


For the ones who don't want it they have no choice lol not much you can do if your in a hold and getting pounded in the ear lol

Why do wrestlers get it alot if it's from taking damage to the ear?
Seeing as there are no strikes in wrestling, i'm confused.

Well, cauliflower ear is caused by the skin getting seperated from the cartilidge in your ear and filling with fluid which in turn creates scar tissue as the ear repairs itself.

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.

Luckily, I keep my hair relatively long so when I'm grappling my ears are generally protected.

You are joking?
Surely hair doesn't protect the ears?
