    I'm referring to his career at middleweight and LH.

    Upon reviewing tape, I've yet to see him rocked by a punch. For someone known for his KO power, he seems to have an indestructible chin. If someone has gifs proving me wrong, they would be appreciated.

    It's almost as if his weakness is something different like wrestling or conditioning.

    No
    They all turn into panic wrestlers when touched by his jab, Vitor being an exception.

    Idk if vitor connected cleanly, but Rumble if not rocked was definitely "shook" by Vitor.

    Vitor threw a blitz and rumble turned into the most panicked wrestler I have ever seen in my life

    Vitor at least stunned him.

    Rumble seems to have a pretty solid chin.

    A lot of people haven't really watched the Vitor fight, just the one gif that gets passed around

    Bad weight cuts ruin the chin. Dehydrated brain is no joke.
