Uncle has 3 times the matches of nephew

My brother and my uncle are each other's closest match on the 37 marker test. But my uncle has over 100 matches, while my brother only has 21 or so. Shouldn't they both match all the same people?

Do your brother and uncle match 100%? If not then it is not strange.
