Hendo landed a good right hand and Ace recovered quickly. I'd say hes got a good chin. He just likes to block knees with his face.

If you watch the lyoto fight, he was deffinately KOd. The headbutt he took was to his forhead, so that has nothing to do with his chin. I'm not sure how good Rich's chin is. I mean, it has to be pretty good, but he's really good at not getting punched so it's hard to tell.

To clear something up for you, having a good chin is your resistance to being knocked out. People get knocked out from shots behind the ear, on the temple, on the jaw, and other spots on the head. Talking about having a good chin or not refers to all of these. If Rich was actually KO'd, he came back to life really quick, but the match was still declared a TKO.

Rich has a good chin but he has never fought someone who hits as hard as Wanderlei.

Dan Henderson and Anderson Silva hit as hard was Wanderlei, IMO.

Lets hope for some more quality bouts. Maybe this card will end up being even better than 100.
