    Great question! I’d say teh Chris only because of the brutal damage his chin has endured in the frequency 5 fight stretch. It’s pretty debatable though since Luke’s chin seems like it was never that good to begin with lol.

    Rockhold.

    Weidman against Jacare survived for a long time taking some hard shots.

    I would, however, pick Rockhold in the rematch since Weidman has a really shit gas tank.

    I don’t think either have particularly terrible chins, but I think Weidman has the better chin.

    LMAO. I wonder if they could even pull it off if they tag teamed Ngannou at this point.

    Rockhold definitely. He got dropped like 4 times against Jan, a well known volume puncher at LHW.

    Weidman has been KO’d by all KO artists, especially Reyes.

    Have them butt heads (chins) and see who falls.

    I'd say Rockhold's chin is worse.. he seems to always react funny when he get punched
    Weidman at least can take a couple of shots before going out

    Weidman has been my favorite fighter since he landed that elbow on Munoz. What I like about him is that he's a quick learner. Does his thing wrestling, does submission grappling for a year or two, enters ADCC. Comes to the UFC dominating lower-tier opponents with his grappling. Rounds out his game as guys try not to grapple with him. Starts landing standing elbows, left hooks.

    He's been in some wars. The machida fight he won the majority of with a broken right hand. He had something special with his footwork against these backtrotting counter fighters. Machida did an underrated amount of damage to him in that fight for what looks like a unanimous decision win on paper.

    The Belfort fight was rough too. He got rocked and flurried on by Vitor. Wrecked Vitor as soon as it got to the ground.

    Watching the Rockhold-Weidman fight I was pretty nervous after round 1. Weidman was winning, but Rockhold was making him work a lot harder. Although not a KO, more damage.

    A flying knee from Romero that would've KO'd anyone. Had the same feeling as the Rockhold fight. He was working a lot harder than Romero.

    The moose fight was a wash. I think he could've kept fighting and the commission screwed up that night by not being clear and concise about the ruling. I still think Mousasi would've continued the same formula the last two opponents did.

    He looked good against Jacare. I felt like the commentary was a little biased towards him. But that's the second time we've seen him knocked dead.

    Both definitely can do without any more head trauma. They're the only guys that one another should be fighting at this point. They're both at the point where they go out with one good shot and are walking into these shots more frequently.They're both in that Chuck Liddell zone so whoever's chin is incrementally worse won't make a difference.

    He got dropped to his knees by the head kick after the Bell and got right back up and then knocked out in the 2nd. Not dropped 4x
