Both Andrei Arlovski and his UFC 174 opponent have been accusing of having 'glass jaws' or a week chin, but Arlovski doesn't buy it. Instead he believes it's just a circumstance of the heavyweight division:
Brendan Schaub‘s detractors say his chin is questionable, that he can’t take a punch from an elite striker. Former UFC champ Andrei Arlovski, no stranger to those types of criticisms, isn’t buying it.
“I think it’s all BS.” Arlovski told MMAjunkie. “People say I had a glass jaw or weak chin, too, and when I fought Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson, the referee fell asleep, and I had the broken jaw in the first round because the referee made a mistake.
