Actually, judging his general expression on the ground, it was very similar to the lackadaisical look of Forrest against Rashad and Mir against Brock (II). It was a lack of concern. Cocky is often attached to an aggressive self-loving attitude, but it is still cocky to a degree.
Call it cocky or overconfidence, it isn't a good thing either way.
