Shouldn't you always be in fight camp whenever Conor has a fight if you are a potential replacement?

    Nate knew he would probably get the fight if RDA pulled. Didn't Nate say in the presser that the UFC has called him several times about fighting McGregor. Why not stay in shape?

    Most fighters stay in shape, but you can't stay at fighting weight hence this bout being at 170.

    Also should have took the fight. For all that chit chat he was doing.

    Yes, adjusting your training schedule to rely on a small possibility of getting a short notice call up is certainly the future of training methodologies.

    Nate is in plenty good shape. Nate wanted to make Conor fight him at 170, so he wouldn't have to kill himself making 155.

    That would get costly.

    Stop this shit, so Nate and the entire other cast of characters that where in the running for a potential fight with Connor should keep fight fit in case his opponent pulls out, that's like 5 or 6 guys putting in a camp with no guarantee

    Fight camps cost money.

    If you don't have a fight coming, most fighters cant afford to train for a fight that might not even happen.

    Dana should pay for like 2-3 fighters fight camps when Conor has a fight lined up just so he can have replacements to pick from.
