What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened
Based on the wording of the text, where damage is dealt first, the expectation is that damage is dealt, and then the stats are stolen and gained. However, the stats get stolen and gained first, altering the damage dealt.
A comparable troop would be Suna, who steals the life expected prior to gaining the magic that she stole.
Between those two troops, there needs to be some change either in wording or in behavior, in order to get them to line up and perform as expected.
