Every UFC weigh-in features an epic staredown wherein the two fighters square up face-to-face — sometimes with fists raised — and lock eyes for the cameras. The staredowns are supposed to help promote the fight because they build tension between the fighters and hype up the fans. However, they don’t always go as planned. Below is a list of the funniest MMA weigh-ins.
In the lead up to his fight with Nate Diaz, Khabib Nurmagomedov donned a warriors hat native to his home country of Dagestan that looked like a big, blond afro.
Fighters are so hard
Oh my God, is that a war boner? Rafi would be so proud.
Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson squared up for their pre-fight staredown. Johnson seemed to take it a little more seriously than his opponent.
UFC welterweight Mike Pierce paused the staredown momentarily to put on a wig that resembled Josh Koscheck’s hair. Needless to say, Koscheck wasn’t impressed.
