At UFC 180, Jessica Eye punched Smith in her cauliflower ear and it exploded. This typically affects mixed martial artists and wrestlers who don’t wear head gear in training or in competition.
I was pretty mad in the cage. I saw some pictures afterward and I appreciate the doctors looking out for me. I should’ve adjusted to protect my ear before the doctors had to stop it. Thank you for all the support, thank you to my sponsors Kleinburg Private Wealth, Venum, Major’s Pharmacy, Vitality Bowls, and WODBOX. Thank you to my team and my coaches at El Niño Training Center for getting me ready. Thank you to all the fight fans. I’ll do better next time.
