Washington AC: We don't have rules that address a toothpick

source: bloodyelbow.com

UFC Lightweight Ben Henderson had a fantastic performance at UFC on FOX 5 in his title defense against Nate Diaz. Henderson dominated Diaz through the 25 minute bout and he did it all with a toothpick in his mouth. In the post-fight interview, Joe Rogan asked Ben about having the toothpick to which the champ replied, "No, that would be dangerous", but it became clear at the press conference that he definitely had.

Speculation began immediately regarding how the Washington Athletic commission would respond to the champ bringing a foreign object into the cage with him. Brent Okamoto of ESPN.com revealed their decision Monday on Twitter:

Statement from Washington commission on Toothpickgate: We will not be investigating. We do not have any rules that address a toothpick.

Definitely unacceptable and most likely being dealt with behind the scenes. They aren't supposed to have anything on their bodies other than the approved gear and definitely not anything inside their mouth.
