    It was probably a rule that the Predators not allow their existence to become known to other species. The Predator was laughing at the thought that the Human who defeated him would be killed in the explosion that would destroy all evidence of the alien.

    The Predator had some pretty cool technology, such as laser targeting systems, adaptive camouflage, augmented reality headsets, plasma guns and so on.

    So it blew itself to bits to destroy that technology and prevent it being back-engineered by humans.

    We do this same thing in combat if sensitive hardware is compromised.

    As for the laugh ... who knows ... I always saw it as an act of respect. The Predator knew it had been defeated so was using a human sound it had learnt as a way of communicating that rather than its own language. Kinda like saying 'Kudos' or 'I salute you!' but doing it with the one human sound it could make.
