The FCATS DNT LYEEEEE....
He went into Sage Mode after he went 8-Tails. You don't get
tired in Sage Mode. And after he'd done his whole talk with Nagato, he was pretty much on the verge of collapsing.
Furthermore, at this point, Naruto
is the one in the position of "that much better." Sasuke is clearly more exhausted than Naruto was way back then, but the gap in power right now is, we don't know by how much, smaller than it was back then. It evens out, we need to see Naruto absolutely trounce Sasuke.
