Anderson Silva explains awkward staredown at UFC 162 weigh-ins

The weigh-ins for UFC 162 got a little weird. During their post weigh-in face off, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and challenger Chris Weidman smashed their faces into each other until the above picture happened. But Silva said it was just regular promotion of the fight.

"It's normal. It's promotion for the fight," Silva told Fuel TV's Ariel Helwani. "It's a fight. It's normal. It's working. My job."

Silva has gotten close with his opponents during face-offs in the past. Before his second fight with Chael Sonnen, Silva pushed his shoulder into Sonnen's face. So a little face-smashing? It's normal.
