    Guys with no chins never take "some good shots", much less a dozen or so very good shots from a large, powerful heavyweight. Those were huge, and if anything Arlovski showed remarkable resilience in getting his noggin knocked around.

    Care to actually provide any examples of weak (or even non-devastating) strikes that downed Arlovski when they really shouldn't've?
    So by your reckoning would James Thompson have a weak chin?

    Exactly, but i can find examples of even Thompson taking some good shots and surviving (against Frye for example).

    When i say Arlovski has a 'glass jaw' i'm talking in comparision to other top level MMA fighters. For a top level Heavyweight Arlovski is not particularly durable.

    (People always say so and so has a weak chin, but I guarantee you any fighters that have been labeled "glass jawed" could still take a punch way better than you or I)

    Yeah, people shouldn't be allowed to talk about sports unless they're actively competing at a professional level in said sport.

    Personally, I don't think Overeem can outstrike Fedor, land the killer knee, punch, whatever that will knock Fedor out. Overeem has a weak chin for a guy his size, and Fedor's overhand will destroy it.
    I hate to keep this chin debate raging but when has Overeem displayed a weak chin? I'm not trying to be contentious, I just haven't seen any examples of this. He's been knocked out 8 times in total in MMA and Kickboxing but these have included Badr Hari, Shogun's ground and pound twice (which could knock out a beached blue whale), and a whole flury of Chuck Liddell punches and knees. Also Little Nog, who we know can smash fools.

    When he was fighting at 205 against tough opponents like Shogun and Chuck in Pride his fights were pretty much always the same. He started off well, gassed because the cut drained too much of his energy and then got the **** kicked out of him. He has been knocked out 9 times, 6 times in MMA and 3 times in K-1. That cant be healthy for his brain and it will start causing him problems in future fights. Its like what happened to Chuck, once you get knocked out several times you are in more threat of being KOd in the future. It has something to do with the brain getting used to shutting itself out as a defense mechanism when it receives a serious blow.
