    It's evident that a very light breeze will drop him these days. Since he's rarely been hit in his career, it's unlikely to have deteriorated due to damage taken.

    So... Has his chin always been similar to Overeem's? I can't fathom the sudden decline. Hunt is still taking shots like he has no brain inside his skull.

    TS showing his ignorance, in his younger days Anderson used to eat shots just to fuck with his opponent. There's footage of it out there

    He used to be in a gym known for their wars in sparring, not good for longevity.

    He took two flush H-bombs and didn't get rocked, so I'd say yes

    GSP got KO'd by Serra. GSP wasn't even 30 when that happened.

    Who knows? Probably. He's always had great movement and been so elusive he barely ever ate big shots. Now he's slowing down his chin seems really fragile, but I think it's more to do with the lack of what made he truly great in the first place.

    I always thought he didn't have a granite chin but he was great at avoiding getting hit because he was so fast and his reflexes. He had a good chin, just not a Hunt or Big Nog chin.

    There is footage of him taking bombs from ranked boxers through to JDS. He was known to have the best chin in MMA for nearly a decade. You noobs really need to do your research.

    No, he wasn't known for that at all. He has one KO on his record other than the GSP fight.

    Chael has more tko wins than Serra. In fact, Serras tko win over GSP was his first.
