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!
