Right around New Years eve, the MMA community is hit with the strange urge to write non-stop top ten lists. Top ten fighters of the year. Top ten matches, submissions, knockouts, blah blah blah. Why ten? Most lists are pretty strong up til #5, and then they’re just kinda lame. Are you all such slaves to David Letterman’s golden standard? I’d promise I’ll never write a top ten list but there is a chance that one day I might. But I do promise that the list will only be as long as it should, and if it happens to be a list of 10 that’s just a coincidence.
Anyways, enough hating on the number 10. The first good list I’ve seen so far this year is Cage Potato’s Top 10 cauliflower ears. As mentioned above, there’s really only 5 or 6 really good ones, and they were a bit lazy on finding good pictures of the guy’s ears. But the article is definately worth looking at just to go eeeew. My personal favorites are Frank Trigg’s meat curtains and Frankie Edgar’s severed ear.
