Default The staredown

The staredown is intresting,trying to intimidate each other ,sometimes it goes too far and they almost start the fight at that stage.

This one is a long one, the intensity in their eyes ,none of them wants to be the first to turn her face away.

Why they put so much attention to this part before the fight? Do you think that it really has an impact on the figh´s outcome?

Karolina was smiling, not serious and Felice just went through a scare (I think this was right after it) with Conor. I am a big fan of Mcgregor, but what an idiot. I dont think these ladies have had any issues, so it is probably not much to it.

It is not intended to impact the fight itself. They put attention on it, because they want people to buy the pay-per-view. The less interest people have in something, the less they will pay for it. Dramatic staredowns and commercials featuring trash talk help drive PPV sales.

EVERY single professional fighter wants to make money.

To me a staredown looks stupid. More fun if they do something different - like Paige Van Zant and the Karate Hottie Michelle doing competitive dance moves at their weigh-in.

Fun would be fine, but that was just goofy and confirmed my decision not to buy tickets to attend.
