I can understand it if you are in a heated grudge match, but he's been doing this to everyone and it has no place in MMA. He got his comeuppance and I loved it. If that makes me a hater, so be it.

Nope, not typically. He was doing that, and has been doing that, for awhile now. He does it to taunt and aggravate his opponents. To his credit, he normally got away with it, but this past Saturday was an exception. Dropping your hands like that in an MMA fight is stupid and disrespectful. You should see the entire fight as this little snippet doesn't show how much taunting he did. It started midway through the first round and carried over into the second (and even in between rounds). He paid the price for it this time.
