ok now that the misleading inflammatory thread title designed to get people to click is out of the way I'll get down to my real point which is just an illogical extrapolation of the title.
WHY THE HELL WASN'T THERE A STARE DOWN BEFORE THAT FIGHT?
Aren't they supposed do one for every fight? Taking that away from Wanderlei is like taking the right hand bomb away from Hendo, like taking knees away from Anderson, like taking... you get the point.
I rewatched the whole event and the only fight they did one for was the main event. Has it always been this way and I only noticed because I was really looking forward to Wanderlei staring through Leben's soul?
Some of the coolest moments from MMA past are in the staredowns. YouTube - ‪memorable mma staredowns - volume one‬‏ YouTube - ‪memorable mma staredowns - volume two‬‏
Come on Dana don't take those away from us (note - I always assume everything bad in MMA is Dana's fault so this may not be his decision but I'm still blaming him).
