Mike will go for the guillotine right away. It's the smart move because Brown has horrible sub defense and is a better pure striker than Mike.
Edit: just checked, Brown has been beaten by guillotine choke 3 times in his career 9 submission losses. Sadly this is basically a gimme fight for Swick.
I think brown got hurt by strikes against Stephen Thompson which is why he wrestled him for the win. Though i also think Brown rocked Thompson at one point. Which is impressive since Thompson is supposed to be a elite striker.
