EIGRP/RIP Metric in the redistribution

EIGRP/RIP Metric in the redistribution

I have the topology below.
I do not understand after I redistributed EIGRP into RIP, one route shows with the metric of 2 as we specified it in redistribution command, but the other route shows with metric of 1.

R2(config-router)#redistribute eigrp 12 metric 2

R3(config-router)#do sh ip route rip
1.0.0.0/24 is subnetted, 1 subnets
R        1.1.1.0 [120/2] via 192.168.23.2, 00:00:10, FastEthernet0/0
R     192.168.12.0/24 [120/1] via 192.168.23.2, 00:00:10, FastEthernet0/0
R3(config-router)#

Thank you

2 and 1 are the hop count to reach router R3 from R1 and  R2 in RIP terminology. (Hop count = numbers of routers)

R1 to R3 is 2 hop count
R2 to R3 is 1 hop count

Most likely that network 192.168.12.0/24 is advertised through RIP from R2, not through redistribution from EIGRP (that would be the reason why number of hops is smaller than 2).
