Can someone refresh my memory: why is Silva getting an immediate rematch vs. Weidman?

I never really looked into/understood this. Didn't Weidman knock Anderson out cold? Wasn't he winning that first round before the KO? What warranted an immediate rematch off a decisive win like that? Yeah Anderson was showboating but isn't that like..his responsibility? I can understand being horrendously robbed by the judges to the point that maybe it warrants and immediate rematch but Anderson got knocked out COLD by Weidman on paper. I just don't get it. Shouldn't Anderson have to work his way back up to a title shot if he wants it (which should be relatively easy for him) especially after losing the way he did?

Weidman offered and it was in Anderson's contract.

Imo Vitor should have gotten the next shot and Silva should have maybe fought one time before another title shot.

Controversy aside, I don't think there should be immediate rematches

I don't know why but Dana White said pre-fight that if Anderson were to lose he'll get a immediate rematch.

Is there a source to this? I've seen people say it a few times.
