How did Hitmonchan outspeed Mawile when I picked Sucker Punch?

Sucker Punch is suppose to outspeed any move but Hitmonchan's Mach Punch got to go first when I picked Sucker Punch I think it Glitched.

When two priority moves are used in the same turn, it would work like any other speed battle. Whoever is faster gets their priority move to hit first.

Sucker Punch and Mach Punch each have a priority of +1, because Mach & Sucker Punch have +1 priorities it acts like a normal turn and bases who goes first of speed stat, speed stat increases & decreases, and abilities (Like a normal turn.)

EDIT: Hitmonchan does have generally higher speed stats (Min. 141 Max. 276) while Mawile's speed stats are a bit lower (Min. 94 Max. 218.) P.S. The ranges show are on a Lvl. 100, Beneficial natured, 252 EV, 31 IV(Max values.) While the minimum stats are on a hindering natured, Lvl. 100, 0 EV, 0 IV.Mawile's Speed, Hitmonchan's Speed, Sucker Punch's Priority, Mach Punch's Priority
