The Jackass stuntman Steve-O was a guest on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast recently,
Steve-O discussed the multiple efforts he had over the years in order to get a cauliflower ear.
Cauliflower ears have long been a staple of life long martial artists particularly if they come from a wrestling background. Longtime MMA fans wouldn’t think much when they see these produce looking ears. However, new fans are always alarmed when they see tumor like shapes the athletes ear sometimes take on.
Giant UFC fan Steve-O spoke about making a helmet to protect his skull, but left his ear off. The first participant was UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell, who attempted to drive a golf ball off of Steve-ear O’s with a golf club, but failed.
After spending two days with Liddell, Steve-O enlisted Ronda Rousey and her husband, former UFC heavyweight Travis Browne. The pair beat on his ear all day long till they thought he had a cauliflower ear. But finally, it vanished.
Jorge Masvidal was the next person Steve-O went to. He said that Masvidal used the “BMF” belt to press his ear against the door while he pounded it. Masvidal believed he had given Steve-O a cauliflower ear. However, it did not stick around.
He finally went to UFC Hall of Famer Jon Jones, which prompted Rogan to exclaim:
“You are such a glutton for punishment.”
“I had the who’s who of the UFC Hall of Fame give their best shot and everybody said ‘dude, we got it’ and then it didn’t work. Jon Jones blasted my ear into oblivion… He so upsettingly overdid it that my ear got blasted apart.”
