HomeFighter Talk Junie Browning Interview After TUF 8 Finale Bruno December 15, 2008 Fighter Talk 43 Comments Fighters Only interview with Junie Browning after TUF 8 Finale. Looks like Junie plans on taking MMA a little more seriously. Tweet Pin It Inside MMA Talks With Tim Sylvia And Robbie Lawler Bobby Lashley Vs. Joshua Franklin Fight Video MFA 43 Comments francodevil December 15, 2008 no matter how junie dresses it up, he is still a cock… Log in to Reply Black Gerbil1 December 15, 2008 he has some skills, he should of been the TUF winner if he was on a team that actually trained right. Log in to Reply Roderic December 15, 2008 Yep. He DOES seem to be taking MMA more seriously. I still kind of wonder if we can expect future meltdowns from him when the pressure gets back on. But, I have to admit, I’m impressed that he’s pressing forward, got a better game plan, got better training and came out and whooped some ass. I’d prefer NOT to see another Quinton Jackson in the UFC – it’d become too much like watching NBA “bad boys” ruin the sport. I love MMA too much to see it ruined by a bunch of brats. So, if he’s got his head screwed on straight (and the same for Jackson), then I’m thrilled to see him fight and improve. And, as I said in an earlier post, I’m glad Extreme Couture was able to help train him and make him better. Obviously, it had a very positive effect on him.

Log in to Reply trout December 15, 2008 he’s awesome! you know what i mean? Log in to Reply TRuNYC December 15, 2008 This guy could be a very dominant fighter. Log in to Reply guest December 15, 2008 I don’t care what he says, he’s still a ****ing idiot. Log in to Reply Luke December 15, 2008 Hope he uses is energy the right way from now on. So we can engoy some more entertaining fights with him. Log in to Reply Samski December 15, 2008 Junie has some skills.. It looks like he is past his issues on TUF. He also has good fighters at extreme couture backing him. Junie has a bright future. Log in to Reply TUF GUY December 15, 2008 People need to understand, he’s a fighter who started from the bottom, in “bottom” I mean that he had a rough life. So from that, it should be no surprise that he acted like an idiot on the show when he drank, the dude has issues and let his emotions get the best of him. But I will say this, I give him tremendous respect for pulling his head out of his ass and getting back on track with an awesome win for his first UFC debut. Some guys never turn around, they just keep feeling sorry for themselves. Log in to Reply KieranMac December 15, 2008 What a tool. Sure, he’s taking fighting more seriously now…he’s been to his first afterparty and got a glimpse of the rewards of being a UFC fighter. Log in to Reply R.KEEGAN TEAM QUEST FIGHT CLUB December 15, 2008 jUNIE is nothing more then punk that blames everyone else for his problems.There is NO excuse for being out of shape when your a fighter, also he knew he was going on the UFC tuf show so for him to be out of shape is bull crap! He claims the only reason he lost the fight was because he was out of shape and the reason he was out of shape was do to Frank Mir and the other coaches. He better smarten up and thank Dana white for saving his life because i bet anything he would have ended up in prison if Dana would have kicked him of the show and did not give him another shot fighting in the UFC.But who knows he is only 23 so there’s plenty of time for him to F up and snap again. Anyone that does the crap Junie did on the show cant just one day say I’m all better and never do it again,there is chemicals in his brain that either he has to much of or not enough. Log in to Reply Goregasm December 15, 2008 If he keeps his head on strait he could have an extremely bright future in the UFC. Log in to Reply DubNub December 15, 2008 Junie is a smart kid. Somehow this kid from KY got on the main card while others with more talent couldn’t. I think it was all a ploy. That “bad boy” appeal won’t last but it got him here. Now, he knows he needs to win fights going up the ladder. Log in to Reply HaVoK December 15, 2008 Heh, I think I like the dude now. That is a long way from I said a few months ago. I still think I was correct when I said it and I hope Im correct again. Everyone can change. I can remember being a huge ******* when I was in my late teens and early 20’s. Log in to Reply rmfa December 15, 2008 @ Roderic Are you serious? Your comparing a sport where a simple push can get you ejected from the game to a sport where you kick each other in the face and possibly cause brain damage, legally? How could it be ruined by people fighting? They FIGHT for a living!! Log in to Reply paddedummy December 15, 2008 The stripper hoes in the picture look like his sisters, especially the “police woman”. The resemblance is uncanny. Junie’s parents were brother and sister, I’m sure of it. Incestuous hillbillies. What do the Browning’s do on Halloween? Pump-kin! Yee-haw, squeal like a pig to some banjo music Maw! Log in to Reply guest December 15, 2008 hes a badass straight up, efrain looked a little better in the finale than he did during to show but anyone who honestly thinks he is better than junie is just ignorant but to take nothing away from efrain he is a good fighter but junie is better Log in to Reply keef December 15, 2008 knowwhatamean Log in to Reply SEANV December 15, 2008 He sucks..hes a weak minded cocky Piece of Garbage. He will never beat Efrain or Nover, final answer… hes just a blob of mental weakness, you cant ever change that. If u dont have the heart to train right day in and day out, you wont make it far… the training is the real battle, the fight is the fun part Log in to Reply adambomber December 15, 2008 Efrain is better than Junie, and i guess the next little weasel that hits the 205 lbers should get their face smashed in because Dana white wont punish the offender. Dana white doesnt care about the integrity of the sport, just making money and if he likes you, you can get away with anything. Junie should have been kicked out 3 different times. And Efrain is a better fighter than him. He beat the guy that Nover beat (in like 1 minute), yet efrain beat nover.

I say if he’s trying to change…good for him….do I think he can change?…a leopard rarely changes it’s spots Log in to Reply R December 15, 2008 I count 24 “d’you know what i means?” Log in to Reply ufcfna227 December 15, 2008 Could he say “You know what I mean” just a few more times? Log in to Reply Rico Suave December 15, 2008 Dude is bipolar, no what I mean! Log in to Reply dave December 15, 2008 Anyone who is posting saying look how much he’s changed he’s a better person, just remember that it was ‘just’ an interview. He’s obviously gonna be saying all the right things, which at least proves he’s not completely retarded. only time will tell what will become of Junie Browning. I personally do not like him because throwing glass and lashing out was well out of order, though I hope he keeps it together and focuses on his action inside the ring…because you know what, he looked half decent in there! Log in to Reply replacement December 15, 2008 I think that Junie has personality and that makes people want him to win but he is still a far way from being a great fighter Efrain if he treins hard is closer to that mark… Hey i like Junie, I even liked him when he was acting like a dick but i am not impressed by his fighting ability… He got the win but he was fighting a walking punchbag. Log in to Reply mma soldier December 15, 2008 Junie is Garbage when he fought efrain he got tapped out. He even considered leaving the ufc he only was used to get stupid incest children from the redneck communities and Kentucky to back him up.He fought Kaplan who was terrible on the show for his game plan. Efrain is the better fighter, and he did well under pressure Junie gave a bare minimum preformance when he fought delgado, hes trash and for yall who believe in him you need to watch some BJ Penn, GSP, Arvloski, Clay Guida, and Anderson Silva videos to re educate yourself on the sport Log in to Reply PuNcH December 15, 2008 He did look execlent in that fight – so it will be interesting to see him in more fights Log in to Reply Okami December 16, 2008 SEANV wtf are you talking about. If he didnt have the heart to train then why is he in Xtreme Couture? Couture’s team made sure he trained right. He proved us wrong at the finale. Your statement is fail. Even couture said he has been nothing but diligent and respectful during training. Log in to Reply bobby lee December 16, 2008 “you know what i mean” can he expand his vocabulary Log in to Reply pwner December 16, 2008 know what I mean?

I wish Junie the best of luck Log in to Reply crazeyvillia December 16, 2008 Lmao. He’s gonna get the hell knocked out of him in the UFC. I can’t wait to see this. Log in to Reply Aspen December 16, 2008 Junie will be there forever, you know what I mean; impressive so young…You know what I mean? Log in to Reply Dman087345 December 17, 2008 It’s too bad to see that people gave this waste of life a second, third, even fourth chance. Give those chances to fighters and people that deserve it, not kids like this with serious emotional and mental issues. He’ll crumble against any good fighter in the UFC. He was good for TUF and bad for just about everything else. I hope the poor kid fails miserably and disappears. Log in to Reply darkmetal December 18, 2008 While Junie does seem to have that “early Gary Bussy” look, I like this attitude now. Just ask yourself, isn’t this guy completely honest that he was both an ass AND out of shape while he was on the show? Then he goes on and looks incredible in his first match in the UFC? I would be the first one to take the guy to task if he came in after 3 months training at extreme couture and couldn’t make weight and gassed early in round 1, but he didn’t. Give Junie some credit, he took a huge loss and made it into a win and extra 20k fight of the night bonus. Log in to Reply Ian December 19, 2008 All that “ya know what I mean” made me think this was Ernest Enters the Octagon or something. Then I looked it up and it turns out that Jim Varney and Junie are both from Lexington, KY. Log in to Reply Steamer Bean December 21, 2008 Murphy’s Law is a bitch. There’s too many “IF”s in this equation. “IF” he stays sober, “IF” he doesn’t flip out anymore, “IF” he takes his training seriously, “IF” he comes in shape he could be a great fighter. When you place your hopes on an “IF” 9 times out of 10 you will lose. I’m not hoping he will fail, I wish him the best of luck, but no amount of talent will ever replace hard work and dedication. (and having a little common sense wouldn’t hurt either) Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
