It's a comfort thing, ultimately.
I recall Sergio talking about how he didn't feel comfortable with the traditional stance, so he did what was natural to him. He's naturally skilled fighting the way he does and he's very, very good at it; why fight those natural instincts to fight in a style that you aren't comdortable with?
David Haye has said a similar thing.
