Hey, Who Wants to See Another Exploding Ear in an MMA Fight? [VIDEO]

That was a rhetorical question, of course, because everybody wants to see another exploding ear in an MMA fight. Exploding ears are in our DNA, bro.

In the wake of Leslie Smith’s cauliflower ear blowing up at UFC 180, BloodyElbow has dug up an even messier clip of welterweight Rance Jones Jr. popping Dion Rizzuto’s ear at Atlas Fighting Championships 4 back in September. At the 1:14 mark, you will see a geyser of blood so propulsive that it must have drenched a few cageside spectators.

And that’s how the ebola virus began to spread in the United States.

We’re no strangers to cauliflower-ear draining videos around these parts. But Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold has definitely raised the grossness bar here by draining his ear, then — after threatening to eat his harvest — shooting it out into his bathroom sink, spelling the word “champ” in perfect cursive. Fuck, dude. No.


Gross Video of the Night: ‘Karmaatemycat’ Drains His Ear, For Your Entertainment

(Props:, the Internet’s #1 source for Karmaatemycat video blogs.)

The life of an MMA fighter isn’t all loose women and free lollipops. It’s a 24/7 grind, and if you’re a hungry up-and-comer without the benefit of fancy-shmancy UFC accident insurance, you might have to perform some home surgery once in a while.

Our dear friend Jefferey “Karmaatemycat” Watts recently posted the following vid on his official site after a nasty cauliflower ear flare-up, with the following description: “Oh yeah thats right I did it, I drained that bitch. I am sure it wont be the last time but dammit if I am not worried anymore and it beats waiting on useless Doctors who went to school for ten years to tell me about shit they don’t know anything about.

So how did Karma’s ear-drainage go? Well, hit that play button and find out.


Week in Review: Ross Pointon Axe-Wound Panties

(Yes, they’re available for purchase. Keep reading.)

UFC 79, the IFL World Grand Prix, Yarennoka!, and K-1 Premium Dynamite!! gave us a week-long hangover.

— We became unhealthily obsessed with cauliflower ears.

— A championship belt hit the black market; profits will go towards buying an entire school’s worth of drugs.

Floyd Mayweather Sr. and Wladimir Klitschko tried to talk some sense into the boy.

Tiffany Fallon was gone in 60 minutes.

— In commenter news, Joe Lauzon and the lawyer suing Quinton Jackson stopped by to chat, 65 people (and counting!) had something to say about this video, and we were betrayed by those closest to us.

— And most importantly, we came up with a kickass idea for a movie called Red Devil. So far, a filmmaker named Roger has offered to direct, and we’ve made some promo tees. Buy 12 from the CagePotato General Store Presented by CafePress and start your own street team!



Randy Couture’s Cauliflower Ear Gives Riveting Performance on ‘The Unit’

From last night’s episode…




Wow. Just look at that thing. My goodness.

As for Randy himself, I gotta be honest and say this was one of those “don’t resign from your day job”-type situations. As an actor, he enunciates every word in a very unnatural sort of way (no pun intended). Plus, he’s got those horribly disfigured ears. I just don’t see “leading man” in his future. Though I would love to see a romantic comedy starring him and Sandra Bullock…
