I don't think it's misleading. It's down to him and Weidman. Basically, it's if Rashad wins, he would consider Rashad versus Anderson. If he loses, it probably goes to Weidman.

Well if he wins on Saturday, he would be coming off a win. Sure he should have at least one win at 185 but that didn't stop Chael from getting a shot who lost at 185 in his last fight, and never won at 205. Nick Diaz loses and gets suspended and gets a shot. Hell Frankie lost his last 2 fights and is getting a shot. I'm not supporting this decision, but given UFC's logic latey, this doesn't look like the worst title decision they will be making. At least Rashad would've came off a win.
