    Because he can't just switch out torsos for abs or no abs. This isn't create-a-fighter...

    Because him taking double gold in +99KG and Absolute would have caused the BJJ community to implode.

    He refrained from competing for the greater good of Humanity.

    Probably gave the spot to AJ; teammates would have to fight in the first match. Same thing happened with Tonon and Cummings.
