    What kind of a fighter would someone like a small, quick striker have a problem with? i.e. large grappler, that kinda thing..... This is kind of assuming experience and technique are the same

    This is of course a very broad questions which requires you to make a lot of assumptions. If they are a stand up fighter only they will of course have problems defending against skilled ground fighters, really of any size. If they can maintain a safe striking distance they of course will be able to defend themselves well, but if ground fighter is able to get there hands on them they will have issues. Since you said you are assuming both parties are equally skilled in there respective arts the problem will only compound as the ground opponent gets larger.

    A guy like Randy Couture(sp?) comes to mind. He is not giant by any stretch of the imagination, but he is a good sized guy. He is strong and skilled enough to destroy you on the ground, and is athletic enough to hold his own on his feet. His fight against Chuck Liddell is one of the most amazing things I've seen. Liddell is str8 stand up, and pretty damn good at it but Couture handled him none the less. As it has been stated in another thread on one of these forums, stay away from guys with cauliflower ear.

      OK so this is way OT: Why do people still have cauliflower ear? I mean if you go to have the blood drained within a day or two of getting your ear hurt you don't get cauliflower ear. Is it a badge of honor or something? I really don't think it improves the look of your ear any, but I guess I feel the same way about facial piercings and there's a lot of people with those too...

          It's a disfigurement of your ear due to trauma. A sharp blow to the ear causes it to bleed below the skin, and the cartilage dies causing a nasty, lumpy appearance. If you go have the blood drained you dont get it. That's why I wonder why so many folks still have it...

            Click on this link, it takes you to Sherdog.com and there are some pictures of Couture, it will give you an idea of what we are talking about.

            I don't know why they don't get their ears drained, I would say it's probably the repeated injury and number of trips they would have to take to the hospital. I would say there is some truth to what you said about it being a badge of honor, I'm sure that also has something to do with it.

              Well, I think after a while you cannot be bothered: too many trip to the doc.
              I am married and my wife does worry about my ears.
              It's like bad knuckles after Makiwara training, you think it is cool to have them.
              But I guess if I was single, my view on cauliflower ears would be different!

                If you are small size striker against a large MMA/BJJ fighter, you are in trouble.
                You will not have the punching power to keep him at bay.
                It is just a question of time before he takes you down and finish you off on the ground.
