The UFC 126 stare down between Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort has climbed the icy hill of ‘legendary status .’ When you add a white mask and mix it with some impromptu nose-to-nose pushing along with some Brazilian smack-talk, it almost makes the $49.99 in your pocket jump out and land directly into Dana White’s hands. While that face-off was epic, it still pales in comparison to the staredown between Anderson Silva and Lee Murray at Cage Rage 8. Murray may be in a Moroccan prison, but that still does not negate the fact that he had the greatest Anderson Silva staredown in the history of Anderson Silva staredowns.
Finally, someone has compiled twenty of the greatest MMA staredowns that took a surprising (or not so surprising) turn for the brutally physical. This MMA Digest video will hijack the next 3:41 minutes of your life and there’s nothing you can do about it. Don’t believe me? Go have a look.
