James Thompson cauliflower ear at Elite XC (Pic)

An alien life form. Christmas ornament. London broil.

Whatever you want to call it, the pulsating, throbbing cauliflower ear that James Thompson sported in the cage last night during his fight with Kimbo Slice at Elite XC: "Primetime" was down right hideous.

How on Earth does a professional walk into a cage with that? Perhaps more important, how on Earth does his camp let it get that bad right before such a big fight?

It wasn't that bad at the weigh-in just the day before.
