They allow it because it is a sideshow. If the heavyweights on each team couldn't fight anymore they'd be out of work. They'd be replaced with a skill guy. The guys main job is to fight so he accepts the risk just like a boxer does. The league probably doesn't really care if a heavyweight is out of a job because of concussions. There are other fighters. The league cares when stars get put out of work because they're harder to replace.

Yes I believe the league concerns are different with the fighters on teams.
