I found this article from May to be pretty interesting considering what happened last night:
"There's a point that can be made that (Silva's showboating) is bad for the sport but what he's doing is mentally breaking that guy down," Weidman explains while pointing to examples such as the Brazilian's drunken boxing style against Demian Maia and taunting Thales Leites. " When you have your hands up and are very tense and your opponent is doing that it can blow your mind. It has you thinking 'oh my god, this guy can kill me whenever he wants!' Even though it may look like he's being cocky, it's definitely a mental breakdown."
