UFC 156 'Ultimate Media Day' staredowns video

New, 33 comments

Check out the staredowns from the top three UFC 156 fights, including an intense exchange between Alistair Overeem and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva.

As mentioned earlier, the UFC decided to change up the usual Thursday before a pay per view. Instead of having an official pre-fight press conference for UFC 156, they created an 'Ultimate Media Day' that allowed media members to talk to each fighter individually. They then did the traditional staredowns for each of the major main card fights. E. Casey Leydon of MMA Fighting was nice enough to film the entire thing, and you can check it out above.

The video is worth watching just for the intense staredown between Alistair Overeem and Antonio Silva. According to Dana White, Silva said "You better start respecting me" to Overeem after they were separated, to which Alistair responded with "I'm going to f**cking destroy you". I like it.
