Yeah, just because someone has a big head means nothing about your chin. Head movement is definately the only way to determine not getting knocked out. I also agree Henderson has amazing recovery time.

It must also help to have no chin. A la BJ Penn. When I say no chin, I don't mean a weak chin. I mean his chin doesn't petrude from his rock head too much.

I have one special trick to increase your chin immensely. With this one trick mike tyson would break his hands on your head and you could just point and laugh. You could take a baseball bat to the face and not get knocked out.

This will cost you around 200$ usd, buy a racecar helmet = instant iron jaw son.

lol

But seriously don't get hit you won't need a good chin

I don't think that will work out. Is the Mike Tyson thing serious though? That would be an interesting thing if you think.

The reason people get KOed from being punched on the chin is rather complex. There are a lot of factors/effects that being punched on the chin cause.

Firstly at the point where the mandible connects to the tempular region connects to a series of nerves that can cause the shutdown of the brain, which means one manner in which a person can be knocked out is by shocking the condylaris mandibulae. This is most commonly done with straight punches or hook punches.

A second method is by directly shocking the mandibular nerves (which run throughout the inside of te jawbone). This is the done usually by directly vertical attacks like knees or uppercuts.

The question then becomes what kinds of physical properties prevent this from happening? It comes down to genetics. If someone has sensitive nerves in their skull they are easier to knock out. If the nerves are less sensitive they are harder to knock out. Its that simple.

I have been dropped twice in a fight. Once in highschool I was sucker punched hard from a kid who ran at me full force from behind and jacked me square in the back of the head. I dropped, I got back up continued fighting and ending up on top of him some how ( I cant remember the fight though I was in zombie mode) Then at a bar last year I was tackled by a bouncer during a fight and cracked my head on the floor. I got back up and again was in zombie mode,

So basically Ive had two or three concussion.. Am i more likely to get Koed now because of these incidents? Or have I healed up?

Well I was making a joke :P but yea it probably would work in that exact same situation. I mean mike would probably just go to the body and it would be OV. That or he takes off your helmet but lol

Yes, I think it would be fair to say that when your body stops growing your chin can't really improve and all the damage you take will be diminishing over time. That being said its not an end of the world for you to have had a couple concussions. If you get hit just right regardless of how your chin is or ever was you'd still go out. I mean you do recover to an extent but never back up 100% as it was. Squirrel would you agree with that statement?

edit: also i'd like to add ive had 2-3 concussions as well and I've not noticed a difference in my ability to take a punch.

...I think jawbone structure plays a part. Most of the fighters with great chins have rounded, thick facial structures. Anderson, Rampage, Leben and of course Cabbage to name a few. Yes, avoid getting hit on the button is the other half of the equation!...lol

its hard to say if some fighters have good chins or just dont git hit on the button often..

like Miguel Torress, GSP, Jake Shields, Frankie Edgar, Mark Hominick, etc....

Well we know for sure that if GSP gets hit right he'll get clocked. Matt Serra proved that to all the world. Also we know that Jake Shields can get clocked as we saw in his fight with Dan Henderson, but we also know he has a quick recovery time.
