UFC 248 takes place March 7 and will be headlined by a bout between Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero. The two took part in a press conference Friday and when it came time for a staredown, the duo opted for a more fun approach. A dance-off!

The moves broke out and Dana White looked on like an awkward dad. When it looked like a staredown may finally happen, a handshake took place as both men smiled and continued the fun.

This was a nice change from the fake dramatic staredowns where both men look like they are about to laugh the whole time. Having a spontaneous dance-off keeps the focus on the upcoming fight in the octagon and doesn't create unnecessary storylines.

It also allowed both men to show off their dance moves before they physically fight each other in a few weeks. No better way to have some fun before a brutal encounter than by having a dance-off.
