    This is a joke, right? Either see a doctor or leave it alone and let it heal.

    I would avoid repeatedly poking holes in your ear to drain it, especially if you are still training, you might end up with a nasty infection. Rolling around on the mat with sweaty mfers is a great way to expose a cut to some bacteria.

    I know a guy who wrestled for about 20 years, he said you can drain it with a hypodermic (get a friend who's an MD or RN to do it), then you want to put a dressing on it to keep pressure, so that it doesn't refill with liquid. If you don't put a pressure dressing on after draining, it will probably just swell back up. And make sure you clean it well before and after draining w/ alcohol or something.

    another question to ask is "Why are you forcefully pulling your head out of a noob's headlock?"

    I have been sticking in some needles in there and draining it manually,and now its just bruised up and puffy, the first day i thought it was kinda cool, now its just annoying the crap outta me.

    bought myself some earguards last week, that should help it out, but what to do about the lump that is already there?

    I have heard crap from...
    -draining it (which has worked to an extent)
    -icing it
    -putting a piece of tape around it
    -going to sleep sitting up untill gravity drains it down
    -go to the damn doctor you fool.

    anything else I can do to stop this crap? its just getting bigger and bigger at an incredible rate.

    the girlfriend won't like this one bit. :besos:

    My ex boy friend was a wrestler and currently a mixed martial art fighter he had a nasty case of cauliflower ears. They annoyed him so much that he ended up having surgery don't know if you are that bad but if they bother you enough there's always surgery.:eusa_clap

    I consider my self a bjj nub (3 months training to my name) and all I do when a noob puts me in a half assed headlock is crossface them and they quickly tap. I dont know if that is a reliable way out of a headlock but its easy thats for sure.

    I find driving the knuckles under the chin works good too.

    I've been seriously thinking about wearing headgear, but my ego keeps me from doing so.

    Headgear sucks ass. **** how it looks: it gets in the goddamn way and always comes off.

    I had a long informative post including humerous anecdotes. Unfortunately I lost the post.
    So in short:

    Just cut your ear off.

    I've got some of those Brute Shockwave ones from when I had to have my ear surgically drained. They've never come off or got in the way, the only problem is that you don't hear so good in them (my hearing is pretty **** anyway, so YMMV) and people occasionally miss your collar and grab you by their straps.
