    Jumping on someone stopping fighting and trying to talk to the ref and hitting someone trying to touch gloves at the start of a fight?

    One is custom, and is done in 80% of all fights, and is expected.

    While the other doesn't happen all that often.

    His point remains, touching gloves at the beginning is FAR more common, and therefore more understood and expected.
    In the middle of a fight one is spending their entire existence looking for openings to hurt the other guy. You are expecting him to be doing the same, not expecting him to be looking elsewhere. I guess in that half a second you wanted Anderson to notice that Bisping was not concentrating on the fight and change a plan that was already in place in his mind, but reactions are often not that quick, especially when you are in kill mode.

    You dont talk to the refs, the ref talks to you.
