    He is still fighting and his chin is not considered so bad these days. He has 5 tko losses in the past 10 years, only to heavy hitters like Ngannou, ROsenrot, Stipe, Reem...
    His chin is considered average nowadays. Go figure.

    Giving trouble to up and coming fighters, beating many. He is holding on pretty good for his age.

    And a very boring one with almost no power - he’s pretty much the exact opposite of who he was during his title run

    but he’s looked pretty good - dominated rothwell and outpointed Albini, lins, and sakai(IMO he got robbed )

    No such thing as a glass or iron chin

    Spare me the bullshit about George Chuvalo

    20 years ago? WHAT???

    He was 3-1 and hadn't even made his UFC debut 20 years ago. What are you smoking, dude? Fedor and Rogers were in 2009. Even in the Fedor fight it was bad fight IQ, not glass chin. He was piecing Fedor up before he decided to go for that stupid flying knee.

    There was about a 4 year period that we suspected he might have a weaker chin, but he has long surpassed that with some solid fights where he took a lot of good shots.

    why do you even follow the sport then. Jonny hasn't even been rocked, and he has been hit too many times.

    i always thought Arlovski had a decent chin, but for a HW it wasn't great. i don't know why people think he has a glass chin though. to me, a glass chin is like Todd Duffee getting slept by Mike Russow who isn't a known power puncher. everyone who's KO'd Arlovski is a power puncher and/or a gigantic human being.

    Reem is glass chin fighter who gets KOd a lot, but somehow has a long career and doesn't seem to have CTE, slurred speech and other consequences...

    to me he doesn't have a glass chin, he has lapses in defense and has shitty recovery, but everyone who's KO'd Overeem are KO strikers.

    Plus, these turds are acting like it goes back to 2004 or something. That was a thing after Brett Rogers in 2009, then by 2013 it wasn't a thing any more. Anyone who held onto it longer than that was holding on just to hate.

    These dudes listen to trolls who say everyone who's ever been KO'd has a glass chin. Ignorance is bliss I guess.
