    First one that comes to mind is Andrei Arlovski, some of the most beautiful striking in MMA coupled with an unfortunate chin and poor defense as well, which causes him to take a lot of damage.

    Others:
    Edson Barboza
    Donald Cerrone
    Erick Silva
    Nick Diaz
    JDS
    Glover
    Fedor
    Cain
    Alistair

    These guys are nasty when they are the ones attacking, but they seem to get hit a lot.

    If anything I'd say the opposite with Fedor, his standup defence was more impressive than his offence, that's really what beat Crocop and Nog the 3rd time and even Arlovski late in his career didn't land much on him.

    A few other names that come to mind are Hendo, Herring, Ellenburger, Cyborg(male and female),

    JDS sort of wades into his opponents with his hands low throwing hooks from his hips. Nelson and Carwin landed big shots on JDS, not to mention the Cain fights.

    Anderson was knocked out, caught with his hands at his waist. Terrible defense, he should be number 1 on your list.

    Bret Rogers broke Fedor's nose with the first jab.

    Happened once, while he was clowning. The guys on my list get hit all the time when they are trying not to.

    Nick Diaz has great defense, he just prefered to talk shit.

    Leonard Garcia has bad defense
