If you think of recent trends with UFC giving title fights to those undeserving because it they think it will sell better and now helping a fighter make weight they are starting to get closer to that area of effecting match outcomes.
The UFC messed up by starting the division without any key players or big names. Hense, its understandable for them to try and get their biggest draw into fighting shape. DC doesn't need it. Jones will find others to fight without DC. DC can take Mir, then go to light heavy with out causing Jones to have to wait on him. With Ronda she needs a big name to fight. The divisions can survive without GSP or Aldo if they need time to bulk up or bulk down, the women's needs as much help as it can get.
