So the only benefit I see to maintaining eye contact at that distance would be that, it could make your opponent feel extremely awkward.
Why not take it a step further, and press your crotch against his crotch and start to grind a little. That would surely take him off his game.
I guess I was thinking of mid-range and long.. up close its more their torso mid-section. As for the grinding.. Hey man.. whatever it takes to get into their mind and get them off their game. In all honest, I do a lot to try to throw people off their game.
If I do something and you respond to it, I know what you are thinking about and can more easily start following your train of thought.
