Anderson doesnt fight right or left handed he fights southpaw (most of the time), which is right hand in front. Bruce Lee was also right handed but would fight southpaw. I think they do this to confuse people, it also strengthens their weaker side.... so when anderson switches to orthodox people prob think that is his weaker side when really its his stronger side. But who really knows other than Mr. Silva...
