UFC's 'Welcome to the Show' launch event staredown gallery feat. Jon Jones, Urijah Faber, Lyoto Machida, and more

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) brass put together a special press conference today (Sat., Feb. 28, 2015), as "Welcome to the Show" became the new moniker for the world's leading mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's slew of fights over the next several months.

Check out the video replay right here.

The press conference featured several of the biggest names in the organization today with Jon Jones, Anthony Pettis, Vitor Belfort, Chris Weidman, Luke Rockhold, Urijah Faber, Frankie Edgar, TJ Dillashaw, Demetrious Johnson, Renan Barao, Carla Esparza, and many more were in attendance for the Los Angeles, California event.

Following a lengthy press conference full of great questions, highlights, and a few breaking news pieces including the new The Ultimate Fighter: ATT vs Blackzilians reveal, all the fighters in attendance squared off -- some for the first time -- for photo-ops before they throw down over these next few events.

Catch all the photos from the staredowns in the gallery above, including UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and No. 1 contender Anthony Johnson's incredible troll job over UFC President Dana White as they pretended to brawl in similar vein to "Bones" now infamous clash with Daniel Cormier ahead of their actual bout at UFC 182 in January.
