Best chin in the UFC

I'm going to be honest, I'm kind of bored. I'm awake at 8 in the morning, and I'm browsing the forums, so I need a good thread to read. I don't think I've seen a thread that's just about strongest chin, (Or heart).

So, who do you think has the toughest chin in the UFC?

My votes are for Leben, Liddell, Rampage, Henderson. There's a lot of them, so who do you think takes it?

Big nog or wandy. For both of them its not about chin its about how fast they recover which is almost instant.

I can't remember seeing Anderson Silva being rocked at all. Usually he doesn't take much damage in the standup, but in his fight with Rivera, he's maintaining a Thai clinch and takes repeated bombs from Rivera and just laughs.

Nog has taken the hardest shots the HW's can throw at him and still subbed almost all of them, he definitely takes it.

Nogeuira def has a rockhard chin, he has taken bombs from all of the hardest hitting HW's but you have to remember he was also eventually knocked down by Cro Cop, Fedor Emelianenko, Tim Sylvia.
The reason to why he won against Cro Cop and Syvlia and survived against Fedor, is more due to his heart and skilled ground than his chin.

Chuck Lidell has a solid chin as well. I cant count how many powerful hooks and overhands he took from Rampage in their frist fight.

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.

Chuck does have a great chin which became under rated when he was knocked out by Rampage. Big Nog has a great chin as well but that is combined with his heart.

Other honorable mentions would be Matt Hamill, Sam Stout, Diego Sanchez, Rampage, Sean Sherk, BJ Penn, Patrick Cote, Anderson Silva, Chris Leben, and I'm probably forgetting some.

Top 3 Favorite Fighters
1. Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell
2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia

Nog and Hendo are light years above anyone else, with Rampage coming in next.

Have to agree with Nog. Liddell has taken some great shots and quickly recovered- one of my favorites is against Guy Metzger when he gets knocked down in round 1 and Metzger thinks he's got him completely rocked. Then at the start of the second round Chuck just destroys him.

Wand's face looked like someone had beaten him with a meat cleaver after the Chuck fight- showed his good chin and amazing heart.

Outside of the UFC- Fujita's head is bigger than a volkswagon. Mark Hunt is freaking amazing too- when Mirko headkicked him he just looks at Mirko like "Seriously? That's it." gets pissed and then comes after him.
