What purpose is served by Brown fighting?

Heres the distinction I see. Some heavyweights legitimately scare people. What fighter would be really scared to be squaring off with Mike Brown? This is exactly the type of guy that pads your win/loss fighting record if anything.

Mike Brown has perfected the busy hook. Arm looking like a jackhammer but really usually accomplishing very little in a fight. Its the full windups and deliveries that really impact. Brown looks like he's trying to score decisions rather than really lay a beating on guys.

A lot of guys would be legitimately scared to face Gazdik in a fight. I wonder how many are intimidated by Brown.
