You do know that all strikes and significant strikes aren't exactly the same right?? You do know that just because fight metric says Sonnen landed a couple more strike standing than Anderson, that that doesn't mean he was the more effective striker whilst standing, right? Out striking someone is a combination of volume and effectiveness. In no way was Chael the more effective striker with what he landed on the feet, so the fact that he may have landed a couple of more strikes on the feet isn't going to sway my opinion any.
this is exactly the same failed argument you used after condit put a clinic on diaz. it didnt work then either..
