I don't think I'd read too much into this staredown. I think Anderson has identified that he needs to appear to be the bully to make Chael back off from his brash comments. To me its just gamesmanship on both guys parts. They both know that they aren't going to actually fight at a press conference or they would likely lose their license. Chael isn't having any part of it and Anderson looks ready to go already.
Come fight time none of this is going to matter but its actually good to see Anderson worked up. Its not going to effect him in a negative manner come fight time, both these guys are professionals, their training is done, now they just have to get to the weekend.
