I've watched every UFC since since UFC 59: Reality Check, and it finally became clear to me tonight that there are two different types of "great chins" ("epic chins" to the youth of the internet) in elite MMA. Type-B: Someone who can get hit multiple times with full force strikes and not loose consciousness--but will drop to the mat and/or look "rocked." ...Type-A: Someone who can take full force strikes multiple times, not lose consciousness, AND act like nothing ever happened. When you rank fighters to see who has the best chin, it's not fair--One fighter may take an ungodly amount of punishment and stay awake, but that doesn't mean he has a better chin than someone who took a few serious bombs and didn't break stride. Guys that show the Type-A traits often go unlisted on best chin lists because they don't look like they are taking a lot of damage, but in reality, they are taking serious damage but they just handle it like beasts. So, who are we talking about here? Here are some examples of Type-B guys: Fabio Maldonado, Junior Dos Santos, and Frankie Edgar ...Here are some examples of Type-A type guys: Anderson Silva, Alexander Gustafsson, and Jose Aldo Here are some guys for which a distinction is too close to call for me: Shogun Rua, Dan Henderson, Roy Nelson, Nate Diaz, and BJ Penn Please post your thoughts, as well as your choices for the best Type-A and/or Type-B fighters, and please separate them as such. Also, if you were wondering, Jonathan Goulet is a Type-Y guy.
