Steve-O is trying to get the look of an MMA fighter by enlisting the help of the top MMA fighters in the world.
Steve-O has made a career out of doing stupid things and making people laugh. Along with the rest of the Jackass crew, he has undergone millions of pranks and skits that have caused him harm throughout the years. Now Steve-O is discussing some work he has done with MMA fighters while trying to emulate their unique look.
Many fighters have spent years training. They are constantly sparring and wrestling on the mat. Due to the severity of the training involved in getting great at MMA and fighting, these athletes sometimes cause wear and tear to their bodies, especially their ears. In the combat sports world, the puffy, scarred-up potions of their ears are known as cauliflower ear. The looks of cauliflower ear have become synonymous with looking tough, something that Steve-O is envious of. So he called on some of the best UFC fighters in the world to help him out.
Steve-O recalls using pro-MMA fighters to bash his ears in hopes of getting cauliflower ear
Steve-O was a guest on The Joe Rogan Experience and discussed his journey to cauliflower ear with the man who knows all about fighting. At first, Rogan did not approve of Steve-O taking a shortcut to cauliflower ear.
“I was trying to get cauliflower ear as like as part of my multimedia comedy, and I remember telling you that I was trying to get cauliflower ear and I remember you telling me that you were like, No, I don’t support that. You said, I think the cauliflower ear is something that should be earned,” he said.
Despite the lack of support by Rogan, Steve-O continued on his mission and called in the likes of Ronda Rousey, Jon Jones, Jorge Masvidal, and more to help him out.
“Chuck Liddell and I got together we made the f–king funniest, craziest video of him trying,” he said. “I designed this helmet that left my ears sticking out to protect my head from like headshots a little bit, and my ear sticking out and I got Chuck Liddell to f–kign set a golf ball on my ear and f–king wack it with a golf club. Then I got together with Ronda Rousey, and was on the mats with her and Travis just like roughing up my ear all day long. Then I got together with Jorge Masvidal. He put his BMF belt over my ear, and he’s just like punching it against a door and he’s like, dude, that’s it right there, man, that’s cauliflower. I got together with Jon Jones. Jon Jones blasted my ear into oblivion.”
Throughout all the damage he took from these fighters he never achieved the cauliflower ear. He did say that Jones took a piece off of one.
