Rafael dos Anjos Continues To Struggle With Keeping His Ear On His Head

Unbeknownst to many MMA fans, former UFC lightweight world champion Rafael dos Anjos has been having severe ear issues for his past few fights.

Three times now, the former UFC champion has had to undergo surgery to keep his ear in place, and it continues to be an issue for him.

Helwani has the story, plus photos:

These photos were provided to me by RDA. He suffered a cut behind his left ear before the Lawler fight in Dec. It re-opened 2 weeks before the Covington fight. That’s the 1st pic. 2nd is right after the Covington fight & the last one is earlier this week, few wks after surgery.
