Your favorite UFC/MMA stare down?
 
What is your personal favorite stare down? Either at the weigh in's or in the cage? Every time I think I've got mine down, I see another great one that I forgot about.

Currently, it would have to be Silva v Belfort, but that's probably subject to change soon :):

Like to watch staredowns like a hawk, Half of the time it can give a good insight into the fighters psyche though some fighters dont display emotions/body language. It can also show fear in fighters especially some of the angry fighters who pose ready to fight anyone.

Always loved Wanderlei vs Crocop 2. I think it subtly showed Wanderlei losing slight confidence for the first time in a staredown.

Couldn't find a video of 2, but the first one is a great one



Gotta love the top youtube comment: " Wanderley looks like hes gonna kill someody... Cro Cop looks like he has already done that... "

This one is pretty awesome.

Don Frye vs James Thompson was pretty crazy.

Clay Guida vs Diego Sanchez was another good one.

I quite like Rampage vs Dan Henderson as well, just because Dan comes up all smiles as they're friends and then quickly realises Rampage wants to kill him and his face drops.

You got it...that was THE most memorable one.

Honourable mentions.

Diego Sanchez vs Clay Guida
Cain Velasquez vs Bigfoot
BJ vs Diaz
Chuck vs Wanderlei

and yes the all time greatest staredown was no doubt in Pride with Mirko Crocop vs The Axe Murderer. Without a doubt both wanted to kill each other right then and there. You can feel the intensity.
