I think this gets left out because it has nothing to do with the fairness argument.

If anything, it further adds to mine that she's hiding behind this as an excuse so she doesn't have to put her title on the line to someone she perceives has an advantage over her.

If she thinks she'll knock her out, why won't she take the fight? She didn't say it's to avoid setting precedent...
