UFC’s Max Griffin tattooed a sliced ear on his elbow to commemorate his gruesome win

UFC welterweight Max Griffin got some new ink, and like a lot of tattoos, it marks a special moment.

What is it? It’s an ear being sliced in memory of the ear he destroyed in his bout against Ramiz Brahimaj last month at UFC on ESPN+ 40. Griffin got it tattooed on the outside of his elbow

Griffin (16-8 MMA, 4-6 UFC), who connected with some nasty blows that almost sliced off Brahimaj’s left ear, picked up a third-round TKO win as a result. Brahimaj’s ear was hanging on, and the referee stepped in and stopped the bout to prevent further damage. It was a gruesome sight.

Well, now that memory lives forever on Griffin’s body. It’s certainly a highlight of his career that led to an important win as he was 1-4 in his past five bouts prior.

Below is Griffin’s sliced ear tattoo (via Twitter):
