Accurate Portrayal of Cauliflower Ear in "The Expendables"

In Fall of 2010, the movie "Expendables" directed by Sylvester Stallone was released to lukewarm reviews. A patient mentioned to me that though the plot was thin and the dialogue shallow, there was a scene where one of the actors (Randy Couture) accurately described his cauliflower ear.

On a side note, the actor's cauliflower ear is actually real. He was a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) and wrestler before getting into acting.
