    I mean he took shots from Nelson and Rumble that would've knocked other fighters out cold yet Rumble only managed to rock him and he fully recovered. These are arguably the hardest punchers in the UFC along with Hunt

    Certainly underrated. Gustaffson hit him with a big knee to. I would say he doesn't have the chin of a prime Hunto. But it's up there. Also it helps he has excellent recovery. Those times he was knocked down he got straight back up.

    Yeah, Roy probably owns most evidence of ability to absorb hard shots without getting even knocked down. At least compared to DC his chin is a lot more proven, its not even close.

    I heard Mike Kyle knocked him out in sparring with a knee. But still his chin is insane.

    I always thought Nick Diaz had a hell of a chin. Paul Daley landed a few strikes on him that would have laid waste to 95% of welterweights. Diaz just took them.

    He wobbled back to his corner after round 3 against Gustafsson, and took the first couple minutes of round 4 just to recover. He definitely has a great recovery but he is getting old and I feel his chin and his ability to recover has already started to decline a bit.

    Both Diaz bros are like crash test dummies. They just get cut real easily

    It was a clean shot, but DC was slightly out of balance which made it seem a lot worse than it was. Very overrated punch in that sense.

    About to say the same thing. Only logical response to this thread.

    To paraphrase a philosopher, "You cannot throw the same punch twice."

    Has been dropped twice in his last 3 fights. Baby Jay is a natural 145/55er, has fought heavyweights as well, and has never been knocked down.
