This is actually a serious question that I have been wondering for a while...was hoping someone could help me with this or if anyone has a link of him answering this.
I really have no clue why he acts the way he does during fights.
Is it because he doesn't respect his opponents and he is genuinely mocking them?
Is it because fighting brings out a different side of him, and this is just his crazy side coming out?
Is it because he really is a genius and this is a tactic?
Is it because he is looking for new ways to challenge himself?
Is it because he's trying to emasculate his opponents and dare them to strike instead of grapple where they'd have an advantage?
I personally think that way too many people overanalyze MMA and take it too seriously and he simply feels this is a way to get them to play his game, and that this will work against people out of his league, but when ur fighting the best in the world eventually someone will be good enough to knock your head off.
I don't really think there's much more to say about it than that, but just wondering if anyone had a different opinion or if they have ever heard someone ask Anderson why he does that
