    Who are some guys who have quite a few KO losses but also have a pretty good chin.

    Weidman comes to mind. He has been KTFO by some shots that would KTFO out of anyone.

    so does shogun. He has a pretty damn good chin but has been KTFO a few times

    who ya got?

    Jose Aldo: 3 stoppage losses with punches (which isn't a lot) but still a lot considering 3 of those came in his last six fights.

    he ate bombs from Stephens with no issue and was able to absorb shots from Frankie / Moicano

    Usually guys with a lot of KO losses don't have good chins. Granted he's been getting KO'd later in his career, Weidman doesn't have a lot of KO losses overall.

    Lyoto has a confusing chin. Takes bombs from some people, but wilts from others. That punch Brunson got him with didnt even seem that hard; maybe a sweet spot.

    Chin can only go so far before getting KTFO, while there is a "chin" factor, defense is the main thing about not getting KTFO.

    This, also that crazy uppercut Mendes hit him with after the level change staggered him slightly but I don't think he was even rocked.

    Heavyweight fat bois Hunt and Kung Fu panda Roy Nelson. Both got KOed a few times but their chin still held up well.

    I think his chin has always been okay, but it does seem to be on the decline, as expected. Brunson KO was weak

    Never understand that guy. He goes on KO loss streaks then comes back with solid chin and winning streak every few years it seems.

    Bang bang.

    He gets a rep for being chinny, but every dude who's put him out is a renowned power puncher.

    And he went the distance with Rumble, who turned his jaw into gravel, and a Bigfoot who was still on the gear. Strangest chin ever. We never know if he is going to go night night, knock his opponent out, or get his face smashed in and lose a gutsy decision. You cannot predict the outcome of an Arlovski fight.

    Moved into it, guard down, didn't see it. Had been cracked in his previous fight too. I was heart broken that night.

    I'll add Justin Gaethje. He's got a really good chin, but his style gets him Bambi'd multiple times in a fight.

    Used to be legendary and was an anomaly to see them koed. Now its normal
