Video: Another Exploding Cauliflower Ear

The first exploding cauliflower ear I can remember seeing was James Thompson’s when he fought Kimbo Slice. Then most recently, there was Leslie Smith’s ear at UFC 180. Now, at Atlas Fighting Championship 4,┬áDion Rizzuto is the latest to have his ear explode like something in a horror movie.

At Atlas Fighting Championship 4 this Fall in Biloxi, Mississippi, professional welterweight Rance Jones Jr faced debuting pro Dion Rizzuto. Rizzuto apparently suffered a cauliflower ear during training, but didn’t have it packed or drained.

Fighters talk about having dynamite in their hands, but this was different. When Jones landed a left to Rizzuto’s left ear, it earxploded.

Then the referee stopped the bout at just 36 seconds of the first round.
