Problem is, the States which held big events Nevada and California `s represent didnt attend.

Forty regulatory bodies were in attendance for the annual event, which convened state and tribal athletic commissions from the United States and Canada. The California State Athletic Commission and the Nevada State Athletic Commission, both known for regulating a large share of MMA events, did not have representatives in attendance.

This “Revised Unified Rules” dont force the ‘Rules” to each state and Orgs as usual.

Promotions will not be required to adopt the new weight divisions. However, if they do not, they will no longer be following the Unified Rules. 

Some are not practical and meaningless.

e.g.
Mohawk definition
Its has been already applyed for each fights by refs.
