    strenghthen ur neck if possible, but regardless theres a nerve there when its hit hard, its either lights out, or ur going stiff an falling regardless.

    Good example of this was AA when he KO'd Buentello.

    Thats why its called the button.

    Nog doesn't have a button. And Silva has a button that can't really get pressed in all the way.
    Cool stuff.

    Everytime he's been knocked down it's because of physics.

    I swear you could hit him in the face with a battling ram and he wouldn't get wobbly.

    you got to clench your teeth, but keep your neck relaxed yet firmly connected to the rest
    of your vertebrae, so when you recieve a hit, the force travels to your whole body
    dissipating the force, rather than taking it to your jaw and breaking it or your neck, and
    getting a whip lash,

    easily said than done. takes years and years of training.

    Having a strong neck will help. Take a look at some knockouts to see the head movements of those who are being knocked out. Their neck usually snaps back or to the side after the punch connects.

    Great post, have you had the chance to use this technique?
    I've never been cracked in the jaw, but if it happens I will try this out.

    Get a loop of soft leather, hang some weight of it, bite onto it and keep it in your mouth until your jaw gets tired. Add more wieght as your jaw gets stronger, try not to hurt your teeth.
    Eating cheap overcooked steak may also strengthen your jaw.

    If these methods are tried plz post your results.

    Use the jab to pop your opponents head up and hook or cross the chin. The easiet way to not someone out is a hook to the chin which jerks his head causing nerves to be cut off for a split second which causes the body to blackout.

    This is one of my favorite fights. I always thought Robbie Lawler was pretty cocky, and just the fact that he got out-struck by a BJJ guy was great. Everyone can get knocked out, glass jaw or not.

    I've read Rocky Marciano used to chew huge wads of bubble gum thinking it would strenghten his jaw. Not sure if theres any scientific truth to that though.

    We're looking to avoid the knock out! It seems to me that while clinching your teeth on your mouth piece, the muscles are working and will keep your jar from getting rattled. I can imagine that after a while your jaw will get stronger just from doing that. Hence, most fighters have a much greater chance of avoiding being knocked out than an everyday Joe Schmoe.
