You've probably all seen the first official staredown picture, but the story behind it is much, much more interesting.
Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the photoshoot for UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey's first upcoming title defense against Liz Carmouche, which will take place at UFC 157 next month (Feb. 23, 2013) in Anaheim.
Unlike previous opponents like Miesha Tate, who stirred the pot and got Rousey riled up, Carmouche is more than happy to keep it cool, crack jokes and force the "Rowdy" one to barely be able to keep a straight face for the five seconds she needs to keep her composure and get a good picture taken.
While Rousey enjoyed herself, she wasn't completely oblivious to the "GirlRilla's" strategy, potentially preparing for some mind games down the road in advance of the biggest fight of her life.
What do you think, Maniacs?
Were you surprised that initial staredown picture even got taken with how much of a tough time Rousey had holding it together? Do you wonder if this has ever happened before in previous intense staredown pictures?
