If Chael wins then I think Nate has a chance to take the strap, but then again Chael will be ridin some sort of epic ego wave, the likes of which we haven't seen before, comin off a win over 'The Spider' and is more likely to smash Marquardt.
Simply put, I think Nate has a bleak future in the MW title picture, at least for the foreseeable future.
Nate has to get past Palhares first, which IMO, he won't.
