    Weidman is probably the luckiest fighter in UFC history.

    Anderson lived in the matrix. Those shots didn't land clean because he was moving with them and blocking

    The only one that really hit him clean was the right hand on the fence he smiled after

    Anderson was at the peak of his steroid use here.

    Silva rolled with punches better than anyone else in MMA

    Anderson was rolling with the punches to alleviate the impact of them , not to mention the man had a terrific chin ..... oh and i forgot to mention .....

    Reem and Lesnar, 2 of the biggest glass chins who happen to be 2 of the biggest steroid users. Flawed theory there, bro.

    Can someone explain to me how steroids supposedly help your chin? I've literally never heard that before.

    there are serious benefits to PED use, but never heard of PEDs improving someone's chin.

    A few reasons. Roids does wonders for ability to take a shot. Also Anderson blocked most of them and Bader obviously wouldn't be going for KO shots

    This. Silva had a good chin but people overrated it because they assumed many of the "bombs" thrown at him were landing when really he was expertly rolling with them and turning them into glancing blows that in real time seem to land. When he slowed down and couldn't do that so great anymore we saw that he can in fact be hurt or KO'd by a flush landing strike.

    I mean, it's not like Bader is Rumble, but Andy had a good chin for sure.
