Did you know that Jackass star Steve-O had part of his ear chopped off by none other than former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones?! This of course was a total accident.

As reported by talkSPORT, Steve-O and Jones became friends during the summer of 2020; because of this new friendship, the Jackass star invited Jones to be part of one of his stunts.

You may be aware of a condition known as Cauliflower ear – it can happen to some fighters depending on how they are hit in the ear. Steve-O wanted to try and get Cauliflower ear (holy shit guy), and asked for Jones to help him out.

Via the Multifaceted podcast (as transcribed by talkSPORT), Steve-O said:

“Jon Jones got a try at giving me cauliflower ear. So we’re at Jon Jones’ house and he’s got barbells with the weights.

“We put my ear in between the weights and he’s like elbowing them. My ear comes out of there and he says, ‘that’s it, you’ve got it, that’s cauliflower ear’, and then a few days later, nothing happened.”

When the Jackass star realized that nothing came to be from this stunt, he reached out to Jones asking for his help once again. This is where the gruesome accident takes place. Steve-O shares:

“So, the last thing we did on one of Jon Jones’ workout machines, I put my ear on like the metal base bar. He puts his belt, which at the time was the current light heavyweight championship belt.

“It was right after he defended the belt against Dominick Reyes. He puts in on my ear on this metal thing and he’s hitting it with a hammer – a full-blown, Home Depot hammer.”

But something goes wrong in the stunt, and Jones ultimately ends up chopping off a part of the Jackass star’s ear with a pair of scissors!

“It seems like everything’s cool and in this footage, it’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen. In this footage he hammers, hits it, and then all of a sudden, one hit, then blood just splatters from underneath this belt. We all freaked out.

“My ear is blasted to where a whole piece of my ear is just hanging down and it’s the most intense thing you’ve ever seen. We got a pair of scissors and just chopped off this whole piece of my ear. Jon did it. Jon chopped it, just one piece.”

Holy shit! Thank goodness Steve-O still has most of the ear!
