As you may have realised from the headline, this story has some pretty gross images in - so if you'd rather not see a partially ripped off, bloody ear I suggest you click away now.

Jackass star Steve-O has had part of his ear ripped off during a stunt with MMA fighter Jon Jones yesterday.

In a fairly disturbing clip shared on social media, 46-year-old Steve-O, whose real name is Stephen Gilchrist Glover, tells the camera he wants to know what a cauliflower ear felt like, but it seems he got more than he bargained for if the video is anything to go by.

In the clip, Steve-O can be seen lying down with his ear resting on a piece of gym equipment while fighter Jones stands up holding a hammer over him, while telling the camera: "I'm getting ready to hurt Steve-O." Well, who could have foreseen anything going wrong here, eh?

The video then cuts to a close-up shot of Steve-O's head which has blood pouring down it onto his white t-shirt, meanwhile a pretty big chunk of his ear has gone. Yikes.

Jones can be heard saying: "Steve-O came to town, started talking s***.

"You see how that turned out for him. I ripped half his ear off.

"You think Mike Tyson did something to Holyfield? Mike Tyson had nothing."

Steve-O, 46, has spent some time training with UFC fighters at the Jackson Wink MMA Academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico - and now it seems as though he'll have something to remember the whole experience by.

But of course, it's basically just another day in the office for Steve-O as the clip then cuts to him casually balancing a knife on his nose like he didn't just lose part of his ear by whacked with a hammer by a MMA fighter.

Despite putting himself is incredibly dangerous situation on a regular basis, last year Steve-O revealed the one time he came 'closest to death'.

Speaking on In Depth with Graham Bensinger he said: "The closest I've ever come to death, like actual death, I think was scuba diving. We were somewhere, I can't remember what part of the world maybe... I don't know, we were some part of the world.


"We were getting ready to scuba dive with sharks. I heard them say the sharks were at the bottom so I just go to the bottom... and I keep going to the bottom.

"I don't know if I was coming up or down but at one point someone grabs my fin and I don't know what's going on. When we get up they're screaming at me, 'You mother f***er, you almost died and I almost died trying to save you.'

"It was because I was doing it wrong. I was like, 'Dude, they said the sharks were at the bottom,' so yeah, it's f***ed up.

"And I continue to be able to scuba dive like I don't know if I'm in the system but yeah, I continue to be able to scuba dive and I should not."
