2011 has been a banner year for mixed martial arts.
We have seen the dissolution of the Japanese circuit, where many of its prominent fighters have come stateside, some faring better than others.
Strikeforce was purchased by Zuffa, the subsidiary of the UFC, and the stars of the WEC's past are now garnering some real recognition after becoming equally successful on the big stage.
However, in the midst of all these happenings, a commodity that fans always look forward to has been overlooked: the staredowns.
Whether it be during those tedious pre-fight press conferences, in the cage action or during the weigh-in ceremonies, several prominent fighters have turned in some aesthetically pleasing staredowns thanks to either their intense or otherwise hilarious demeanors.
