    It got me thinking after watching justin vs edson.

    I dont mean that negatively, i love it. But these dudes have a ton of offense and not much defense. Justin because of his style and barbosa for his questionable chin, even though hes got great TDD.

    If not any of them, then who?

    Overeem is one for sure. Great offense, sometimes gets absolutely wrecked.

    Cody Garbrandt too but it's been awhile since he's KO'ed anyone.

    Chuck didn’t lose his chin until late in his career.

    Jimi Manuwa , Overeem and Manhoef are the biggest ones.

    Overeem.

    If Alistair could take a punch like prime Mark Hunt he'd be the undisputed greatest heavyweight ever.

    Chuck even though he had great TDD he eat tons of punches during his career. Also Rocky Marciano.

    is hard to have good striking defense in MMA when grappling is part of the game. Brain starts reacting automatically to the threat of takedowns and you'll drop your hands a lot.

    If Manhoef fought in the UFC no one would come close.

    Lombard was stopped by strikes only 3 times in his career. Never forget how hard Woodley ducked Lombard.
