Great shout - that chin is ****ing legendary.
I wanted to touch back on Hamman a bit. He could get knocked out every fight for the rest of his career and I would still rank him highly.
I don't feel KO losses should always correlate to ranking chins. He takes so much damage before getting put away (reminds me of Joe Grimm), the Philippou fight for example:
If it takes 20 straight shots from Costa Philippou and get knocked out -- is that really worse than being rocked but not knocked out from a lesser middleweight? Hamman goes out because he's human and there's only so much the body can take.
On the other hand - Rashad Evans (who's only been knocked out once) has a horrible chin, IMO.
Sorry for the rant, just thinking aloud not arguing or anything -
