TUF Nations Finale weigh-ins feature intense staredowns

Today, all of the fighters on the TUF Nations Finale card made weight to make their bouts official. There were some very heated and interesting staredowns during the weigh-ins that you can watch in GIF form below.

As expected, Tim Kennedy and Michael Bisping had a heated staredown. The two men will finally settler their score inside the Octagon tomorrow night.

In an unexpected turn of events, Dustin Poirier and Akira Corassani had an intense staredown in which Poirier shoved Akira. Neither man has really badmouthed one another, but clearly there was some animosity building behind the scenes.

While the intensity that was shown on the main card was exciting and helped to build up more hype for the fight, the moment that stole the show on Tuesday evening was the post-weigh-in toast from Ryan Jimmo and Sean O’Connell.
