As a fighter, one might not necessarily consider it a good thing to be known for having a sturdy chin.
Still, it is worth celebrating those fighters who seem to be able to absorb more punishment than Rocky Balboa on a high dose of lidocaine.
I have no doubt there will be some bickering over my choices. I expect the omission of Chris “The Crippler” Leben to be a particularly sore point for some of you. That is why I would invite you to vent your frustrations in the comments section, and I will attempt to ease your concerns.
Let me be clear from the outset that there are many, many fighters who possess a great chin. However, such a short list necessitates that I be ruthless in my choices.
As a result, I will not be selecting fighters who, whilst durable, have been knocked out on multiple occasions.
So without further delay, I present you with the top five chins in the UFC today.
