    How is A.Silva on the iron chin list? does he ever get hit in the head with any decent shots to begin with? :dunno:

    I would've said Rampage but that open mouthed uppercut left him wobbly, lol. I can't believe he didn't finish Jardine quickly.

    Silva has taken some very big shots before.

    I dont think Lytle should be off the list. He got dropped, not KO'd. And that punch he took one or two fights ago that made him look like a mutant was epic.

    Rashad should be on the list. That guy has an amazing chin and amazing recovery.

    Heath Herring has the best chin in MMA, he fought so many top level guys and has never really been knocked out. Lesner almost took his face off but heath survived the whole fight

    Cote and Franklin both decked him at least once, nobody noticed though because he did not react at all

    I don't remember BJ getting knocked down, he was kind of dizzy from the GNP but that's it

    I hate BJ as much as the next guy, I mean he basically just quit in the fight, not sure if I can strip him of his iron chin status though

    Arlovski was never on it. And Fedor's chin has been questionable, at best.

    I still think Leben has an iron chin- anderson hit him with the kitchen sink and he just fell down awkwardly... it took MULTIPLE shots to even get him down in the first place.

    I literally laughed out loud

    what part of being absurdly close to being unconscious equates to an iron chin?

    Leben is tough but Anderson proved that he's not invincible on the feet

    hunt got ko'd with a single punch.
    Even Fujita got hit MULTIPLE times and still got up RIGHT away when they stopped the fight.

    Your basing iron chin on the fact that someone was tko'd?
    Let me ask you this - if it was anyone else taking a beating like leben or fujita did, they would have been out COLD right?
