Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Gross Video of the Day: NASTIEST. ELBOW. EVER.

Well, there’s one way to deal with cauliflower ear. Today’s video comes to us courtesy of Fight Lab 20: MMA Cage Fights @ Coyote Joe’s in Charlotte, North Carolina. Making his professional debut, Kenneth Crowder took on 1-1 Shane Tyner in a bantamweight contest that provided more than its fair share of highlights, but we’re going to focus on one in particular. After completing a takedown midway through the second round, Crowder unleashed an elbow that shall forever be known as “The Nastiest Elbow Ever Thrown By Anyone Ever.” Trust us on this one.

With the surgical accuracy of a laser in a James Bond movie, Crowder’s elbow sent a piece of Tyner’s ear flying across the ring like an ejected mouthpiece. And as it turns out, this would only be the beginning of this poor bastard’s suffering. Yes, despite having half of his ear sliced clean off, Tyner would go on to lose the fight BY UNANIMOUS DECISION. No word yet on whether or not the referee for this match was John Kramer, but let’s just assume it was for the time being. We have a feeling the money Tyner walked away with for his fearless efforts will not be enough to cover the hospital bill that inevitably followed, so everyone raise a glass and order a bucket of baby clams¬†for lunch in this man’s honor. It’s the least we can do.

Word has it that after the fight, one of Tyner’s cornerman attempted to communicate with him through the missing piece of ear to mixed results.

I'll bet that is the guys mouthpiece and not his ear.

elbow is the knife of the human body, in the Thai army they say f you loose your knife use your elbow. also in muaythai there are nastier elbows than this one maybe not as gross but way more deadly bows.

The recipient of the elbow probably had a cauliflower ear and the elbow just popped it like a zit- so my guess is that you're seeing what used to be inside the pinna or outer part of his ear. That's probably why it looked "normal" after the shot. I'm sure it won't look like that after it's had a chance to swell for a bit.

Is that even...possible? Did the guy have a freaking razor blade Wolverine-spring out of his elbow when he throws them?

Does your ear really matter? It's not a beauty contest anyway.
Now if someone's nose flew off like that...
