Like most have said, I don't think it's a matter of respect or disrespect. It's more a tactic, if you will. A way in which Silva is able to effectively get in the heads of his opponents. And as much as I like Forrest, Rich, and Henderson, the dodging and dancing has been highly practical. How many fighters, now, have we seen him frustrate and lure in on the basis of a few dance moves, alone? It's actually ingenious.

When I saw him with the sexy head movement, I figured he was doing that to show Jones Jr as well, but that white drunk probably was too trashed to notice.

Its probably a bait tactic. If he never did, maybe Griffen would not have came after him and got KTFO.

And do you think the fact that he almost only used boxing to win this fight had something to do with RJJ ?

i love silva, hes got character... really breaks down the language barrier for him!

One of my favourite parts in the match was when buffer was introducing him, the crowd boo'd him hard, and he gave this little "oh no they're booing me" joke face. Which was followed up with a nice little buffer power jump stomp.

It's exactly what Lyoto does. You bunch of weirdos. I don't like A.S when he's boring, but this time he was awesome, feinting is a big part of fighting, Bruce Lee said so

Anderson always does that in every fight to entice his opponents to swing so he can counter. Was this the first Anderson Silva fight you watched?

Watch the end of the fight after the last knockdown. Forrest is putting his hands up as if to say "no more" but the ref was nowhere near Anderson. ANY OTHER fighter in the UFC would have pounced on Forrest and hurt him even more. Just ask Michael Bisping. =)

Anderson restrained himself. He is the epitomy of class.
