    This just occured to me recently, Mark Hunt used to be one of The Chins in MMA, but when I saw Manhoef KO him I thought, oh, boy, Mark's chin is gone, but it struck me that his chin has been good in recent fights, particularly the crazy slugging match with Big Foot.

    So now, retrospectively, we can say Manhoef is truly a monsterous puncher. I mean, it wasn't a secret that Manhoef can punch, but he typically fights at 170, no? And here he is KOing a HW and an iron jawed one, at that.

    Manhoef is one of the hardest hitters in MMA. And he caught Hunt with a great punch as Hunt was rushing in.

    So huge power + perfect spot + perfect timing can even KO Hunt.

    Well, either Mark Hant has a glass chin or Melvin Manhoef is SuperJesus...

    Or you're a bellend, which is somewhere in the middle.

    I think it caught Hunt by surprise and he was moving into the punch too so that didn't help

    If I dont remember wrong Hunt ran to Manhoef s punch,the worst style to take a punch and ıt was the 1st minutes of the fight and Manhoef s power was fully in that punch other than that Manhoef is hell of a striker

    I don't get sherdoggers obsession with chins being gone. Especially when, as in this case, there's nothing to support the claim. Hunt was knocked out by a heavy puncher, when recklessly coming towards him. Simple as that. It's not that he's been ko'ed left and right since then, and the punch JDS dropped him with would probably have finished most guys out there.

    No he typically doesn't, he normally fights between MW and HW. He's also most likely the hardest P4P puncher in MMA, he can KO anyone.

    Remember when Mark Hunt was stuck under Bigfoots full mount and punches was raining down? Put anyone else in that position and see if they survive 10 seconds of that.

    Running into Manhoef expecting not to get KOd=stepping on a mine expecting not to get blown up


    Manhoef is p4p the hardest hitter in MMA history and it wouldn't be an over exaggeration to say that he's the hardest hitter in MMA.

    Can't believe this was even asked.

    Yes, Manhoef has ridiculous power. Like he could KO a rhinoceros. It's mental. Hunt has taken big hits from Bigfoot, JDS...he can take a hit. Manhoef is just supernatural in his ability.

    The UFC signed Mark Hunt? WTF, that guy is coming off 5 straight losses no way he survives in the UFC

    Melvin fought most of his MMA career at MW because of Grappling. There is no doubt that Melvin can hang and knock out heavyweights in the striking department

    I think he'll suprise a lot of people. His ground game's improved leaps and bounds.

    I've bet the farm on him armbarring the shit out of Sean McCorkle in the first round. Bank on it.

    Manhoef has a special type of power and Mark Hunt was pretty much jumping at him at the time. That said, yes Hunts chin is "gone" but Mark Hunts broken chin is now merely iron instead of fucking adamantium.

    Hunt/Bigfoot was like Hunt/Sefo revisited x5. His chin is and always will be one of the best.
