Anderson is usually so respectful to his oppenents
How soon we forget Anderson's last fight where he was nothing but disrespectful towards his opponent *and* fellow countryman. Did Maia not deserve respect?
This is all trash talk and hype and I expect that once Chael loses (if he does) he'll be respectful towards Silva. We've seen it time and time again. It just so happens that it's never been taken to the level that Sonnen's taken it to.
Anderson, on the other hand, blatantly disrespected his opponent, his employer, the fans, his sponsors and the sport in general in the fight with Maia and then denied ever doing so afterwards and continues to deny it to this day.
Actions speak louder than words. In his case, his actions in Abu Dhabi screamed "f*ck you" to everyone involved.
