1. Mirko “CroCop” Filipovic vs. Wanderlei Silva
In what is the best stare down in MMA history, Mirko “CroCop” Filipovic and Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva (who makes the list for the third time) faced off prior to their PRIDE Final Absolute fight. To this day, I don’t think that either man has blinked. The stare down had it all. Intensity. Referee with awesome arm movements. Silva rocking. Between all these factors, these two men went to war and it was CroCop who got the win with a head kick in the first round.
