The one thing Chael was totally serious about was that for him the point was to be champion. I think if he doesn't see a clear path in which he could be in a title fight that he doesn't want to compete. He knows a third shot would be far less likely now, at least at MW. I think Dana will pick up on this and have a meeting with him to ensure him there is a way. Dana loves the draw Chael can bring and his skill in hyping a fight.
