    Which fighters have taken the most damage, win or lose, and still been able to prevent their brains/bodies from becoming punched-up piles of whipped fish? I'm thinking top 5 guys but doesn't have to be. I'm picking Urijah Faber. since becoming wec champ faber has gone all 5 rounds 7 times, losing 6. add in the scott Jorgensen fight and he's seen championship rounds in 8 fights. and he's been tko'd twice in that time. pretty impressive shit really. who else has put in the fight miles like that?

    Overeem has been sent to the shadow realm like 15 times in MMA and kickboxing combined and he's still about to fight for a title

    Frank Mir and great shout on Overeem @KONE

    Mir has been ko'd like 8 times at HW and still seems pretty well together

    I don't get it. if I took even one flush shot from any of mirs opponents they'd be making a movie about my life starring tom hanks. that's tough dude.

    Lawler is an obvious one
    Cowboy has never been a defensive fighter, he's still elite after being in some wars
    Bisping was never one to take a lot of damage, but he's been in the ufc facing hard comp for a decade and now has the belt, pretty cool
    Same for Alvarez

    Lawler is working his way up the list.
    Edit: Looks like we posted at the same time.

    Yeah, g-great shout on Mir there... @wilKO ....

    Agreed. Even more impressive is Tito recovering from his devastating cracked skull injury. Not only that but he fought with it, what an absolute warrior

    Not only that but he fought with a broken neck at the same time. Warrior, indeed.

    I'm happy to see you finally give the LHW GOAT the recognition he truly deserves.

    Mir and Overeem have both been smashed a bunch and have a ton of mileage and are two of the most eloquent fighters, quite surprising since they compete at HW where people hit like they have fists made of steel, I think a lot of the fighters that seem borderline punch drunk were people that weren't the brightest before taking all kinds of punishment

    What he said, except Nog fought WAAAY longer than he should have. TS is a moron for listing lighter weight classes where the fighters are too weak to do real damage. The only dangerous guy Faber fought was Edgar, and some leg damage from Aldo. This does not compare with heavier weight classes in any shape or form. Not even lightweight.
