Lightweight Champion a Welterweight!

I am not sure if this was discussed already but I have to ask this question! I don't want people to think I am bashing on Sean Sherk but I looked at his profile on the UFC website and it says he is 169 lbs. For Sherk to be a lightweight he would need to drop 14 pds. When Joe Riggs could not make weight he couldn't get a shot at the welterweight title! So why did Sean Sherk, who is techinically a welterweight, get a shot at the lightweight championship when he was over 14 pds? Isn't that against NSAC guidelines? If am missing part of the story, please let me know!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
