First, Max is a more difficult fight, in my opinion. Second, Conor has to win this or else it is the last of his big money fights. He hasn’t won an mma fight in years as is but he’s still big enough to produce one last needle mover. Tony thinks he can beat Conor and he knows he’ll get paid. If Conor fights someone else, and loses, that’s it. He can either fight the James Vicks of the world and earn that sweet Reebok $$$, or he can take his money back to Ireland and fend off paternity accusations.
