    Everybody knows about the Nelson's, Hunt's, Hendo's chins but what are some chins nobody talks about that are absolute iron?

    GSP - The guy went down against Serra but Serra hits like a truck. GSP went to war with a prime Hendricks who hit like a semi-truck and also survived Condits head kick clean off the temple.
    Jake

    Rick Story - The guy leaned on his wrestling to save himself but the only time he was finished by strikes was by Cerrone's insane video game combos. Rick Story has been in some wars.

    Clay Guida - Guida has been in absolutely brutal fights and has eaten massive shots like a Sanchez headkick. Even when he got smashed with some hooks by Mendes he wasn't put out cold

    Chris Leben - The original Zombie.

    Edit: Mighty Mouse- the guy survived power shots from Joe-B and Dodson both in their primes and they're both known for brutalizing people with strikes in their physical primes

    I don't think you get to pick people who normally don't get knocked out but then did anyway. For a list like this, you're looking at someone like Jones, who's been clocked but not rocked.

    Jones and it's more impressive given the amount of elite strikers he's faced

    GSP does not have a granite chin, he just has very high fight iq, defense and knows how to recover

    Nelson got KO'd

    People lose their reflexes and get stopped as age kicks in.... Jones will show it more when he's older. Doesn't diminish his chin.

    Only man to survive losing to Rumble at LHW. Phil and Jones are funky and weird to hit clean but also boast great chins when they do. It's cool to watch in a weird way.
