Why can't he add his AP? Is that forbidden by the rules? I personally authorise any AP adding (even from fellow PC) if someone join the fight. That's what Dan is doing there.
Btw, my current players tactics is to go for augments as far as they can. That is, even their followers are used for augments and not AP lending. They all saw that attacking someone stronger than you with many AP is only a quick way to give _him_ many AP in turn. They much prefer to be the strongest one and then begin to bash on the opponent's head.
