If you're GIVEN TO taunting, and win a fight with one punch, you might say to your opponent, "You're no fun, you fell right over!"

What exactly is "given to" here? Someone said it means "have a tendency" but I think it means it's just a variation of "if, supposing."

given to = tending toward, inclined to, as in: She was given to eating crackers in bed.
