Which is what I meant by my original post. Frankie's easier to knock down because of fighting style, not quality of chin.
I think we're on the same page now

Hard to say cause he does an excellent job of not getting hit. From the few times he has gotten hit I would say it's average to a little above average meaning about 6-7 bispings.

The Condit headkick was set up on a nice angle so he didn't see it coming, but IMO it definitely didn't have much power on it as he was slightly off balance from the set up combination beforehand so I wouldn't justify surviving that means GSP has a Hendo like chin.

And to the guy saying GSP has a better chin than Silva, LOL.

It's ok, but nothing compared to Condit's. Hendricks shall be the new champion.

Go watch his fights again. He has taken hard shots and been totally unphased.

Against Serra he got hit behind the ear... that knocks most people down. It messes up your equilibrium... then he just got followed up on.

Condit just knocked him down. He recovered. lol.

GSP chin is fine.

its decent id say. Hard to tell since he doesn't get hit too much but hes proven it to be good enough for him to make the odd mistake

I think he has a well above average chin, but it wont matter in this fight anyway. Pretty hard for Hendricks to land that big left hand from the bottom. GSP with another UD 50-45 or 49-46 easy. I would love to see Hendricks put him out cold with that left, but no way would I bet against GSP. Hasnt fought a guy yet that he couldnt take down and control.

Whats more important is how quickly he recovers. If Johnny can hit him with a shot he doesn't see coming his chances would increase but he will and can take a flush shot from Hendricks. Hendricks is going to look much slower than GSP come fight night. GSP will duck under his punches and shoot on him anytime he tries to land a haymaker.
