Israel Adesanya Stars As UFC Release 'Best Faceoffs Of 2020' Video

How good is a staredown?

There's something quite unique about seeing two fighter staring into each other's souls just days before they're set to go toe-to-toe inside an octagon.

Besides the bout itself, it's one of the many reasons why sports fans are so madly in love with mixed martial arts.

And throughout the years, we've seen some truly epic faceoffs between some of the biggest and baddest stars the UFC has to offer.

Most recently, the best staredown that comes to mind was between Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk ahead of their strawweight title fight at UFC 248.

But in terms of who is the best at it, a few names could lay claim to that accolade: Conor McGregor, Michael Bisping, Nate Diaz, Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson, Chael Sonnen and even Clay Guida.

But if you're picking the most legendary staredown of all-time, there's only one winner.

Arguably the most scary and iconic came between two MMA greats in Wanderlei Silva and Mirko Cro Cop during their PRIDE FC days.
