    How he keeps showboating, did it last time got caught did it this time got caught again, why don't his coaches sit him down and tell him to keep focused with hands up ?

    he is not a conventional fighter. You cant make him fight like one,especially at this stage. He taunts more because he finds himself more in situations he doesnt like,and he is trying to give the impression that he is doing more than he actually is.

    I never liked the guy nor his style of fighting. Anyone with good body movement or a pro boxer can duck and weave all day without throwing a punch the way he does. It's almost to me like the grapplers version of just laying on someone for a round and doing absolutlely nothing. That said, I can't deny his victories and do respect him on a professional level but as a fighter I just never cared for his style or his hypocrite personality.

    Same reason Fedor doesn't have a conventional boxing stance with hands in front of the face. There was a long interview about Fedor a while back and they told in that interview that when Fedor was made to keep his hands up during boxing training, he did worse because he couldn't see the opponents movements as well.

    Different styles for different people.

    Silva is a counter striker, always has been. He taunts like that as he wants the opponent to get mad, lose control and swing wildy...... where he'll boot you in the face and knock you out....

    No. He taunts to create openings and confusion. Plus it helps with his flow.
