So whats the consesus? Small Head= Weak Chin?

Big Head= Good Chin?

Dont be Jardine

I can definately agree that one should not fight like Jardine. But I don't think there is a strong consensus here. The size of the head really has nothing to do with the chin.

What about the shape and width of the head?
If your head is wider and more round shaped It would give the brain more room to move without hittin the skull Wall. If you have a very thin head the brain would hit the wall much easier. Alot of these fighters have much squarer jaw lines as well. Can you prove this wrong by thinking of any fighters with solid chins and thin heads? Or Round heads and suspect chins?

Bj penn, Anderson Silva, Chris Leben, David Tua, Mark Hunt, rampage all Have round wide heads.


Jonathan Goulet, Kendall Grove, Amir Khan etc... Have thin heads.

I don't think that the shape and width of the head have anything to do with that. The thing is that Hunt has developed a suspect chin. Anyways Silva has always had a good chin.
