It seems to me and once I again I could be wrong but that No one in Max is like Mark Hunt where knocking them out seems out of the question. Which is good for Andre since he has insane power however the key IMO if Dida is able to come back from being dropped well that'll be very good for him.
Bonjasky uses his MT guard very well, and that's how he can block the punches so well. The only person who comes close to that in MAX in that regard is Buakaw.

In terms of elusiveness, I'd say Masato and Sauwer are extremely elusive and very hard to hit.

In terms of great chin, I'd say Sato has a ridiculous chin.
