Fitch weak chin? Hmmm okay.

Chuck, Forrest, Jardine are all looking pretty bad these days chin wise.

He kind of seems to get punch drunk easily, but it's really hard to actually put him down. Let's not forget that GSP DOES have KO power and the dude he fought last night had arms made from trees or something >_>

I was impressed with Belcher's chin, he walked straight through some shots unphased like Santos did to Carano or Brown did to Faber.

Yes..this obviously means weak chins.

And Fitch has decent recovery but he gets hurt like every fight lol.

Jardine for sure...

Franklin has been criticized in the past... But I don't know. The shot from Belfort didn't seem too powerful. At the same time, he did take some shots from Hendo.

The shot from Belfort also clipped him behind his ear. You don't always have to hit someone hard in that spot in order to knock them silly.

Chinniest, means strong chin or weak chin?

I'm confused b/c I thought Fitch had a good chin.

I don't think Chuck or Wand belong on the list. They've been in the game far too long and have taken probably three times as many hits in the head. We've all seen them take serious damage, but after absorbing a super KO punch it's really hard to be 100% ever again mentally and physically.

Alessio is definitely there.
Kendall Grove
Wilson Gouveia
I'm surprised Stefan didn't get KOed. He looks like a clumsy giraffe although he's fun to watch.
Forrest
Yoshida


CHINS OF STEEL

Hendo
Rampage
The Nightmare
The Carpentar
The Prodigy

I would include The Talent, but I seriously hate that guy. He's fricken goofy. Can't wait til he gets KTFO.

Honourable Mentions: Oleg Taktarov or Don Frye

Though he's no longer in the UFC Andrei Arlovski has to be the all time chinniest fighter to compete in the UFC. Which is a shame as he's one of the best stand up fighters in the division.

Penn's probably got the best chin. Hendo's been dropped a lot more than BJ.

Anderson Silva deserves mention for a granite chin as well. He let Jorge Riveira punch him in the face with his hands down like it was nothing.
