Heaviest hitter and hardest chin?

Two questions:

1 Who has the most heavy hands? My vote goes to sokky. His hands to MMA is like the Shotgun alternative in resident evil 4.

2 Who's chin is the hardest. My vote goes to BIG NOG or Mark Hunt no explanation needed.

I'd be thrilled to hear your opinions

you could also do this per weight class

I pretty much agree. Arlovski might hit harder then sokky. Hard to tell from watching but he has a lot more mass.

It's hard to call an LHW the heaviest handed fighter in the world, because he only has 205 pounds behind his hands, here a guy like Butterbean definitely hits harder because his fat ass has 250 pounds slamming into the guys face.

You have to look at this a few different ways: Heaviest hands (lands the hardest combinations), heaviest punch and best chin.

Since I'd have to name a heavyweight for I'll do it by weight class, just to be fair.

Best Chin

Heavyweight: Mark Hunt sort of a no-duh
LHW: ??? seems like all of the guys I would give this two (Lil Nog, Forrest Griffin) have gotten KO'd recently
Middleweight: Kazuo Misaki his only TKO loss is on a broken arm and, less face it, he just won't go down, regardless of how hard he gets hit
Welterweight: Karo Parysian 17-4 and he's never given up or been knocked out, the only stoppage over concern in his corner, and with the level of competition he's faced, that's saying something
Lightweight: Nick Diaz Let's face it, the guy has a chin and, as much as I don't like him, he's got the best chin at 155

Heaviest Punch

Heavyweight: Tank Abbott Cabbage in one shot, case closed
LHW: Sokoudjou again, sort of a no-duh
Middleweight: Robbie Lawler I watched UFC 37.5, that was a KO
Welterweight: Joe Riggs all it takes is one punch, he doesn't always land it, but it's still there
Lightweight: Melvin Guillard knock out with a body shot

Heaviest Hands

Heavyweight: Andrei Arlovski sick combos and follow up, he can stop with one punch, but that punch seems like it's always part of a combination
LHW: Rampage a little while ago I would have given this to Chuck, but Rampage is more aggressive and his strength is overwhelming
Middleweight: Dan Henderson when he's on, he's on
Welterweight: ??? couldn't think of anyone who has done anything impressive, and I didn't want to give it to Matt Serra
Lightweight: Takanori Gomi he hits hard and fast, I really don't have any doubt

Hunt for the hardest chin
Cro Cop for the hardest Kicks
Abbot or Cro Cop for heaviest hands. I think Liddells are a tad bit overrated. And he hasn't fought many guys with hard chins except for Rampage

Hayato Sakurai has some pretty heavy hands too and so does Rob McCullough

for WW I think it has to be St Pierre just because i've seen more of his striking ability than Serra.

And for HW i think Igor Vovchanchyn's hands are a lot heavier than Arlovski's

Butterbean doesn't have number 1 hardest punch imo. He's not quick enough, mass is not everything.

For chin id say either:
Hunt
Fujita
Big Nog
Page isnt bad

Heaviest hands:

Abbot
Hendo
Igor
A.A
Lawler
Gomi
Sokky

i dont think C.C has the heaviest, he's hit alot of his opponents with alot of good shots, does he even have a KO with punch? I know he broke Sapps orbital...
