SOLVED: Why is my float zero?

    Whenever a object is identified it will return it's name and the match value. If the match value is too low "none" will be returned, however I don't understand why my code is returning a name if the match value returned is 0.

    String object_ID = "none";
    float match_value = 0f, longest_len = 20f, match_win_am = 0f;

    //for each object in memory
    for (int i = 0; i < object_names.Length; i++)
    match_value = object_MatchAmount(i) / longest_len;

    if ((match_value > 0.5f) && (match_value > match_win_am))
    match_win_am = match_value;
    object_ID = object_names;

    //ID found due to high score, exit for loop
    if (match_value > 0.8f)
    i = object_names.Length;

    //output text
    status_text.GetComponent<Text>().text = "ID : " + object_ID + "\nMatch % = " + match_value*100.0f + "%";

    There's no way to change the object_ID string unless match_value > 0.5, so how is it possible that I get an object_ID name and a match value of 0?

    SOLVED : the problem was finding a match value below 0.8 but higher than 0.5 and not exiting the loop right away.
