If you read the notes on the fight at the time when they had it recorded as an NC, it said something like the existence of the fight is recorded, but the result is not because the fight was unofficial, or something like that. Before that, they tried not to even recognize the fight, not showing it on their schedule. It was all pretty ridiculous, and was reflecting badly on them to be sure. I'm glad they did they right thing. Probably they realized the laughing stock they were making themselves to be, and I'm sure a lot of emails and what not came their way. Who knows what was behind it, but some political influence doesn't seem like an unlikely cause.
