That ear explosion , combined with the Seth Putrezelliziz popping on TUF 2, were 2 of the nastier things I've seen in MMA.

Was it the earlobe that busted? Because it didnt look like it drained out at all, blood was down his face but that ear was still wobbling, It almost seemed like his eardrum busted.

Thompson's ear was way beyond the common cauliflower variety we have seen in Randy Couture and Dan Henderson. This ear looked like it was 99% spent and only needed to touched to blow up into a bloody mess. Kimbo tagged it hard and I almost hurled. That was effing disgusting. CBS just scared away all of the newbies!

I don't understand why Thompson didn't have that thing drained. He had it during the weigh-ins, and he had to have had it at least a few days before. Surely it doesn't take that long to recover from draining a cauliflower ear, and even if it wouldn't be ready, just tape it up. In the end, it cost him the fight. I thought that fight was gonna be stopped before it even started because of it.

Eddie Wineland's ear against Chase Beebe in the WEC Bantam-Weight title fight was much bloodier than that.

Yea it was pretty bad.
It looked like the steroids he takes just went straight to the ear.

He didnt look like the JT of old. I almost didnt think it was him.

I mean we expected this JT and we got this one.
It should have just been Kimbo's beard vs JT's ear

Why have it drained when he got Kimbo to do it for free?

Seriously though. It was gross.
