The division was circumstantial but Pac was operating physically where he had been for a while (see his other in-ring weights against Morales and Diaz). On fight night, Ward and Pac were in their confort zones and their opponents weren't, well actually Dawson was but making weight affected him. DLH had a rehydration clause against him.

Both performances were something to talk about, but after Pac/DLH, the cat was well and truly out of the bag when looking at fights like this. Hype couldn't work again.
A vast majority of fighters weigh a division or two above what they weigh in at on fight night. There's a big difference between weighing in at 145 and weighing in at 130 or 135. It wasn't as simple as Pac just not having to cut weight anymore.

And there was no rehydration clause, how long are people going to continue to lie about that?
