    Chael already said in a interview with fox that if he got the call he had to fight Chris Weidman he won't be happy to fight him.
    Not saying he wouldnt fight him but he said he wanted a fight with Belfort and I think he will retire after the fight.

    Well Dana already said only if Vitor wins he gets a title shot. So Chael doesn't have to worry about fighting Weidman.

    If he wins he's a comfortable 2-0 against former champions. Why would he not milk that and do one last final title fight given how they hand out title shots in UFC.

    Maybe because he already knows he will retire.. but Chael has nothing to achieve anymore. So i think he's done.

    Yes he does. But he knows that he doesn't need to fight Weidman.

    People like Chael don't really retire. He'll be like Nick Diaz.

    seems like a good time for him to hang it up.

    he's had a reasobably good career, and has gotten into the analyst/broadcaster aspect of the sport. i'd respect him for retiring without getting the Big Nog criticism..
