Anderson Silva, Chris Weidman Kiss at Weigh-in (GIF)

During the UFC 162 weigh-ins, main event participants Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman shared an awkward moment when they pressed their faces together for the staredown and ended up pushing their lips together in a kiss that neither man had hoped for.

UFC president Dana White jumped between the two, but they continued to stare each other down before parting with some words from Weidman.

After the staredown was complete, Weidman joked about the moment.

“How did it feel to kiss the champ?” Joe Rogan asked Weidman. The undefeated challenger responded, “He has soft lips. Wife, don’t get jealous.”

And who said the weigh-ins can’t be entertaining?
