Times like this is when MiddeEasy truly needs a body language expert on board to tell us what the heck is really going on with this face-off. For example, why did Manuwa choose to stick his left fist directly in Gustafsson’s face? What’s the point of Alexander nodding after they’re done, and why did Manuwa decide to shake his hand shortly after? Perhaps it’s just a reciprocal action since Alexander chose to extend his hand prior to the two facing off.
My god does this .gif bring up an extraordinary amount of questions — or perhaps I just look entirely too deep into two shirtless and dehydrated men staring each other in the eyes in front of a large crowd of cheering fans. Yeah, that’s probably it.
