It's not being unprofessional though, it's strategy. Bonnar's one and only chance was to impose his size by laying on Anderson and tiring him out, Anderson lowers his hands to trick his opponents. Once they hit him they think they have him beat so they will just stand in front of him then it's Anderson's match to lose. If it were unprofessional he'd be doing what he did in the Leites or Maia fight where he refused to engage. He doesn't treat them like trash, it's a fight, and it's Bonnar's fault for being so dumb as to think he could stand in front of Anderson for anything more than 3 seconds at the beginning of each round.
It's like putting your head in a lion's mouth then being pissed if it bites your head. Don't stand in front of Anderson Silva and he won't clown you, it's his playtime, he doesn't disrespect he's merely having fun.
