I really questioned whether he'd even bother.

At this point I have to think his hearing would be better without the deformed remains of his outer ear. And he wouldn't have to worry about it falling off again in a fight.

Yeah, but the thing is he shouldn't be fighting anymore. And before anyone asks, no, he can not hear you now.

Great to hear. Man has probably the biggest heart in the history of the sport. but it is definitely time to hang up the gloves. Only potential matchups I would like to see him retire on would be Saku-Royce 3 or Saku-Rickson....but probably never happen

Hmm... When your ear falls off, it might be time to consider retiring from your profession.

 he is gonna end up being the guy that dies in the ring someday

or, if were lucky, he'll just be in wheel chair punch drunk

either way, the mere thought of it brings tears to my eyes .....
