    Even though Bisping is a MW, he has only been KO'd by extremely powerful shots (TRT Vitor's head kick and TRT Hendo's full power H-bomb).

    Overeem is known for a shaky chin but he does fight at HW.

    Give your opinion on who has the better chin.

    I don't know how you'd judge this. Reem could eat any shot Bisping has taken n I doubt Bisping could handle HW power punchers

    overeem has a good chin actually, he never goes outcold he just gets stunned easily and just stands still and lets his opponent tee off

    The shot Hendo hit Bisping with would KO a locomotive. I think Bisping has a good chin, whereas Overeem's chin is a liability.

    bisping has a fine chin. That shot that hendo caught him with would have put down a rhino. Reem jhas a good chin he just gasses and then gets slaughtered because he is completely out of oxygen.

    I guess you could make the argument that Bisping has a better chin in a p4p sense, but overall I'd definitely say Overeem.

    P4P Bisping.

    Overall Overeem.

    Overeem obviously has to take hits from bigger guys and his is not too bad, it's just that he tend to get hit and not
    protect himself.

    This.

    Reem because he gets KO'd by 265 lb guys, not middleweights

    People saying Overeem has a good chin even though he's been knocked out 10 times and is wobbled by the slightest touch to the chin.

    Based on how their chin stacks up towards their division? Bisping by a mile

    In line with thread consensus; Overeem absolute, Bisping relative.

    I highly doubt Reem could eat the H-bomb that Bisping took. If Dan can finish Fedor he can certainly finish Reem.

    You have a strange description of a "good chin."

    Chin = the propensity to get stopped on strikes, period. Any further parsing of the term is pointless.

    difficult.

    Reem gets hit by MUCH bigger guys. And has heavy mileage. So his chin looks bad in some ways because of how he gets KO'd when he loses. But HWs in general hit so much harder as it is hard to say. i think Reem suffers from some defensive issues and carelessness as well, which alsio contributes.

    With bisping. He's practically blind in one eye after a few jabs. So it's not so much his chin as his ability to see shots. Also . in Bisping's defence, he's been in trouble in fights and recovered, come back, and won. I don't remember Reem doing that
