Question about hadeeth


I watched this video. They guy, although a learned professor, has a bad attitude. But my question is how can a hadeeth have a sound isnad and yet an unsound matn? It does not make sense to me. One would think if the isnad is sound, as it came from reliable sources linking it back to the prophet, that the matn would be sound also. But this lecture points out, with many examples, that this is not the case. There are many ahadeeth with sound isnad but an unsound matn.
