Penn has never been dropped in his career, and that includes going up against bigger guys. I may argue that he is number one.

As granite-like as Hendo's chin is, he has been dropped on multiple occasions.

Fair point Rob, who dropped Hendo, considering no one dropped BJ...

Off the top of my head:

Shogun
Wanderlei
Newton
Fedor
Feijao
Anderson? I think Anderson dropped him in the second.

Chris Lytle?

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 -

Anderson Silva's chin is underrated too. The greats, I feel, tend to always be underrated in chin and toughness.

Oh, we should all give our heads a shake for omitting Gomi.

We all know Hendo's credentials (great post Rob), anyone even closr though?

Prime Nog? Jackson? Penn?

No doubt these guys are granite, but who is the better man p4p...
