    He's lost it for awhile, nothing new that most people already knew.

    I think he was referring to it as a colloquial term for ability to take shots to the head in general. But yeah, I thought Shogun recovered pretty well. His chin has degraded from its legendary days for sure, but it's still pretty solid and not potato level like Chuck Lidell yet.

    Shogun was eating hendo bombs for 5 rounds and only got knocked down once in their first fight. Please, his chin is beyond rubbish compared to what it was.

    There's a difference though in just being dropped and in looking as wobbly and dazed as he was here.
     
  10. His chin is holding up better than your ability to make an intelligent comment. Maybe you should retire.

    I thought "chin" was one's ability to take a punch, and not literally the chin?

    I lol because of how malleable the term "chin" is around here

    the point is anyone can get hit behind the ear and lose their equilibrium. he recovered it shortly after. is his chin as good as before? probably not, but it's not 'shot' by any means.

    If phantom punches from a sub par striker puts you on shaky legs you're not going places.

    Look the only reason Shogun's chin is still above average is because in his prime he had one of the best chins ever, like easily Hendo-Hunt-Nelson level.

    His chin is fading. But it's also the way the man fights, he throws down with whoever he fights. His fights usually turn into brawls quickly especially recently. Shogun has taken shots over the years from the best and was always known has a granite chin but your body can only take so much.
