There are just some opponents that are matched up and will never get along.

Here, we take a look at some of the handshake fails and snubs that we have seen throughout the years in the UFC and in other fight promotions starring some of the biggest names in mixed martial arts. Some big rivalries seen in this video include Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate, current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping with Luke Rockhold and Anderson Silva, and the Diaz brothers won’t be left out of this one.

Any other incidents that stick out in your mind that are not seen in this video?
