See. Here's the 'derpy derp' garbage I'm talking about.
Fightmetric weights heavy punches to the head waaaaaaaaaaay higher than they do 'soft arm punches' or leg kicks or jabs to the body. That's why when they offer their full fight analysis you almost always see rounds being awarded to the guy who lands the hard head shots, regardless of whatever else lands.
It just so happens that they also record everything landed at range as a 'significant strikes.' You know... just like a baseball box score records both home runs and infield singles as 'hits.'
But all of this has been explained literally thousands of times on this forum, so perhaps I'm the idiot for deluding myself into thinking that one more time will finally do the trick.
