Let me get to the point: If he loses to Nate again that would have to be demoralizing. Conor McGregor is having the training camp that MMA fighters dream of. He's brought in a Brazilian jiu jitsu coach, he's eating very well, he's training at the best facilities, he has all the money he needs to make sure he gets what he needs this camp. If he loses to Nate again that would have to be demoralizing. You tried your best but you still weren't good enough against a guy whose not ranked in the top 15 of the UFC roster. Conor would lose his mental edge going into the Aldo fight. You can fake it, but he will doubt himself which is a dangerous place to be in. A lot is on the line for Conor next week whereas Nate has nothing to lose.
