    He got hurt badly and rocked all over the place by Gray Maynard. Gray Maynard has 2 ko's in 20 fights and both were over complete nobodies. You could make the argument that Aldo has a better chin since he was able to survive getting hit clean by Mendes several times. He took Cub down and controlled him, tko'd Mendes early etc... I'm not saying he has a bad chin but he's considered to have one of the best chin's in the history of mma yet he hasn't really been hit clean by any ko artists.

    But his recovery is insane

    Never been finished by strikes in his entire MMA career, including 10 years in the UFC, while fighting the best of the best. Legendary chin as far as I'm concerned.
     
  4. Good recovery/stamina/heart/cardio.

    I don't think he'd recover from Conor's hits though. May as well get that outta the way.

    Hes got a chin like Masvidal. Very damn good but gets rocked/dropped more often than not.

    ^^^This.

    He can be rocked and hurt undoubtedly, but he's tough as fuck and seems to be able to rebound every time he gets cracked.

    His heart stands out more than his chin tbh

    For guys like DC, Hunt, Nelson, it's their chin that stands out

    Less his chin and more his unholy recovery time. If you take pressure off the man for a second he's suddenly as fresh as he was before the fight started.

    Here we go... lol. I think Holloway would finish him as well. He's precise and can keep up a crazy pace, he wouldn't gas out in the 1st rd like Maynard.

    The way he fights protects his chin. He's not one to abandon takedowns and brawl

    His chin is great. His heart, determination, will, and recovery is legendary.

    He gets dropped easily, but it seems impossible to put his lights out.

    Prime Maynard hit a lot harder than Mendes. Lol prime Maynard was like 185 lean in there. If he never got chinny he would have been such a force. He was a straight up beast, don't underrate him because of the hard slide he took, there was a period where Maynard was a serious threat to anyone at 155.

    It's more of a heart/recovery thing than chin I'd say.

    His chin is average, it's his recovery ability along with his heart that makes it's seem legendary.

    He's been rocked/dropped once in the past 4 and a half years, and he's been fighting the hardest hitters in the division.

    We'll never know since Conor would never touch him. Frankie would take him down fairly easily and beat him into a living death on the ground.
