If he manages to win tonight I'll be very surprised.
Apparently there was miscommunication. Doctor advised against Matt cutting more weight. He thought it was a directive to stop, not a recommendation. He had 2 more hours to make weight.
As to the title fight ... you have to the "exact" weight. Now the definition of what that means changes depending where you fight. Some places it is 170.0, some it's 170.2, some it's 170.49, and some it's 170.99.
