I mean it could be possible that the older you get, the slower you get. Thus meaning late reactions to blocking your face and such. More shots land clean giving a higher % of a KO.

Erm, I don't know much about internet lingo so ill just say this my way. I mean no malice in what I say but was the question in the title of the thread honestly 'does a chin really age?'

Come on. Really? I think 1 or 2 people mentioned, yes! Of course it does! Its called the ageing process? And of course getting repeatedly hit on the it will make the bones more susceptible to future injuries. I come in peace.

That is true with certain bones and nerves but with others they really do degenerate overtime. The chin is one of those areas that will degenerate overtime. It comes with aging and it is an inevitable process we will all have to go through!

No worries, I tried not to make it a prick reply. Its true bones, like muscles do grow stronger through injury. I didn't think I worded it quite correctly. What I mean is a 40 year old MMA fighter whos been through the wars is more likely to get knocked out, generally, than a 25 year old fighter whos only a few fights in. Yes the bones get stronger, but knockouts become more common, thus leading to more injuries. I'm not a doctor, evidently, so I can't explain why.
