Why do so many wrestlers have huge chins?

    I can't be the only one that's noticed this. It's not just wrestlers turned MMA fighters either. If you look at NCAA guys, so many have frankenstein jaws. Why?

    Jaws -high Testosterone pre natal. Chins high HGH. Both good starts for combat athletes

    If Mars and Venus are simultaneously in retrograde while conceiving a child, said child will be born with wrestling talent and an above average jawline.

    It's the testosterone. Look at formula One drivers.

    You can only grow one way. If you chin is big then it means your dick is tiny.

    Because the colleges they went to pumped a load of PEDs into them in order to win. This is a fact. People worry about the Eastern Block back in the day. Americans are doing the same thing to kids in sports. Look at Brocks "growth" through college.

    He goes from an ectomorph to a mesomorph in a few years. Not even remotely close to being natural.

    Good post. Maybe having your neck that way for hours, changes your facial structure while growing. Mouthpiece and biting down could also be reasons.

    Natural concurrence.
    For rice car driving strong neck is pretty good stuff and for wrestling too.
    I don't know U.S folkstyle but greco roman or freestyle wrestlers usually have strong necks, so more appears, that space between neck and jaw/ chin isn't large.

    I don't believe in PEDs theory.

    I had experience when wasn't able to apply proper chokes for friendly demos if there a bit passive resistance.

    Okey, most interesting experience was with one relatively small guy with 0 combat sports training.
    Distance between jaw's bones at joint point end and at half stressed neck muscles = less than 1/3 inch.
    Distance between end of chin's bone and neck = at best 1 inch.
    Neck from end of shoulder's muscles till beginning of jaw's jonit = ~ 3 inches.
    What kind of choke there have place?

    All that he did, lovered chin a bit and stressed neck.
    I don't think that PEDs might bring good results for motosport.
    If U do mistake in 0,25 seconds, it might cost few seconds for finish or fall and this means ….almost all for this event.

    It is not only wrestlers. I have posted about this earlier but there certainly is something about the prevalence of a "typical" Murrcan look: huge chins and jaws and generally big heads, short stocky legs with big asses and a huge torso and forearms.

    Think Matt Hugues and Ben Askren. These guys could not be anything else than Murrcan even if their lineage is obviously Northern Euro.

    I really think it has to do with the prevalence of growth hormones in meat and milk (of which Murrcans consume a shitload since they are toddlers), which in turn influences growth patterns in body proportion.

    All jokes aside, have you guys noticed that there are not so many white murrcan UFC fighters with the physique of GSP or Conor, i.e. long limbs and short torso?

    Anyways, maybe I am talking out of my ass, but I really feel like we might be on to something.
