Us MMA and boxing fan love a good pre-fight staredown.
But one person who probably despises them is UFC president Dana White.
The boss has found himself in the middle of some of the biggest and baddest fighters on the planet, desperately trying to keep them from swinging on each other and sparking a huge tear-up.
As the years have gone on, White has has looked more and more nervous while conducting the ceremonial face-off and this recent incident has proved his fears correct.
During the staredown between UFC 268 headliners Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington, White was forced to spring into action when tempers flared and now his hilarious reaction has gone viral online.
When Usman and Covington went nose-to-nose ahead of their heated rematch, the atmosphere was tense but tensions didn't seem like they were going to boil over.
That was until Usman suddenly shoved Covington in the chest, sending the trash-talking welterweight off balance.
Thankfully Covington didn't react and order was restored, but what seems to have got MMA fans talking most is the yelp that White produced
As Usman pushed his rival, White tried to the keep them separated but in doing so let out a frightened cry which has now gone viral on social media.
And, of course, fans wasted no time in turning the moment into a meme and posted it all over the internet.
