The Nunes-Budd Staredown got me thinking about what the best one of all-time is.........I realize that the Budd-Nunes was so intense because Nunes didn't understand the english commands to turn and face the crowd, but still, it was a pretty good staredown.

#3 Julia Budd vs Amanda Nunes



#2 Zoila Frausto vs Miesha Tate - a lot of trash talk leading up to the fight

(1:15 mark)

#1 Cyborg vs Marloes Coenen - no staredown ever comes close to this as far as I know of

(38 sec mark)

Any others that I'm missing?

Comments or thoughts?

Cat Zingano always gets "up close and personal" with her opponents at weigh-ins! :twisted:

Yes, I agree, Marloes and Cyborg was the best staredown ever. Cyborg looked angry that Marloes wasn't afraid of her at all.

Marloes is truly impossible to read insofar as her stare never betrays any emotion. In fact, she could probably be one hell of a poker player if she wanted to.

I just noticed that Cyborg didn't blink an all during that staredown :shock:

I loved the ice cold stare Marloes gave Sarah during the referee instructions right before the fight.

Never saw that, can't see to find the video of that fight, anyone have video of that?

I thought Finney looked pretty scared in her staredown vs Cyborg, but who wouldn't.

Why does Cyborg remind me of a Great White Shark in this picture?

I can't find the video link but Felice Herrig vs Nicdali Calanoc might have beaten out Cyborg-Coenen.


Also, Cat Zingano had another pretty good one with Hashi....

How important is the staredown to the fighters? I know that it's good for the promoter. And secondly, how do you women keep a straight face druing these staredowns?

Best wishes,
David

IMO it is *very* important, for everyone. It's supposed to be a fight not a tupperware party. I'm all about respect but there's plenty of time for that after the fight, and if/when it is earned. When it's not and there's still unfinished business those are just good cases for rematches.

A true 'complete' fighter should be able to adapt under any circumstance, any mindset, whether inside the cage/ring or out...and, be able to control their emotions whether their opponent is hostile or not, and still fight effectively whether angry or not. This whole can't fight anyone who's not a smiling buddy is just feeding the double-standard suppression and makes females look even more mamby pamby compared to the guys.

Not saying every fight needs to be a super grudge but the reality is that life isn't all rainbows n butterflies. BOTH aspects are needed. The average MMA fans are not a bunch of goody goody wusses and want to see the entire spectrum of emotions.

As females and due to the added stigmas we have an even greater need to "out-badass" the guys in every aspect, including staredowns...
