    I'm new to sherdog but have been watching the UFC a while. I have noticed recently that people have been using the term chinny to describe fighters with glass chins, e.g. Overeem. I always thought it meant tough and able to survive a knockdown e.g. Edgar

    Being chinny and having a chin are two different things.

    Maybe it started out as that definition. But nowadays it just means weak chin or a guy who has taken too much damage over their career. Just roll with it

    A term that stems from Boxing.

    Means a sensetive chin.
