Had there been an opponent in there with a lesser chin, that opponent would have woken up disappointed.
Silva's got a solid chin, but it's not exactly unbreakable. Velasquez and Cormier got to it.
I think Hunt has a lot of power, but his striking is very straight forward and predictable. When it's that straight forward, a strong guy like Dos Santos and Silva will be able to weather the storm.
