    Has anyone seen the video whete Nate says he imagines himself losing just before entering the octagon?

    It's interesting to hear a fighter say that... odd way to derive motivation.

    It's not that he visualizes losing before going into the octagon
    it is that he has internalized that he 'can' lose so that if he does lose
    it is not too hard on him
    immediately post fight

    Ronda needs to learn to do this

    Back in my wrestling days, it was a good way to kind of take the pressure off yourself. It's not that he thinks he'll lose, but he's putting his mindset so that when he is in a horrible spot...it won't be a surprise to him. So when McG was using him as a punching bag the 1st round, he stayed calm and kept his composure....but when you look at when the tables turned...Conor couldn't acclimate, he knew he got stunned and immediaetly instead of keeping his calm..continued to run into Nates fire.

    Kind of like GSP admitting that he was rocked by Serra, and instead of backing off and getting his composure back, he wanted to get back at Serra by hitting him...which resulted in him being finished.

    Stay ready for the worst and you'll be prepared for when it happens. Fighters like Rousey who never accepted defeat fell hard when they finally met their equal.

    Freak injury the only way Nate loses on Aug. 20 or in other words his "worst case scenario".

    Nate can't lose.. If he wins, he wins and makes a point. If he loses, we have a trilogy and Nate gets his pockets full of money.

    That left hand of Conor's landing consecutive times is his nightmare.

    He doesn't need motivation at that point. Someone breaks into your house and threatens to hurt your family, do you need "motivation" to fight that person off??

    People are really f'ing silly sometimes w this shit...

    Worst case scenario for Nate is Conor decides to point fight and wins a boring decision which I think will be Conor's strategy for this fight

    Yes. If Nate wins again there is no trilogy.
