Yep. He's using his character as a defense mechanism. By being only Lucky Patrick, Mayhem isn't available to take questions on his failed UFC career, spats w Dana, or his arrest. He accomplishes the goal of promoting his movie, without having to discuss uncomfortable issues or anything that could be used against him legally.
I think this is more of a strategic failure on the part of Mayhem and his attorneys than mental disorder. Anybody remember the Chuck interview where he requested Tommy Morrison as his next fight? THAT is a fighter having a mental lapse.
