So I've heard, and previously thought, that Forrest Griffin has a suspect chin. Meaning I was unsure until as of late, how well he could take punches. BUT, after reviewing the tapes (over and over and over), I think he's actually got a pretty good chin. My reasons are as follows:
- Took MANY BIG punches from guys like Dan Severn, Quinton Jackson, and Rashad Evans.
- When he got ko'd by keith he took like 8 punches, followed by g&p punches (most wouldn't be able to weather that storm)
- When he was ko'd/tko'd by Rashad he took a hard elbow, followed by a hard right that snapped his head back against the canvas actually koing him. IMO.
- He's fought a lot of hard hitters and only had three ko's/tko's, and one was a Jeremy Horn head kick.
