Is Cole Miller Underestimating Junie Browning?

Apparently Cole Miller’s mother never told him that if you don’t have something nice to say about someone, you shouldn’t say anything at all.  Talking to Steve Cofield (it doesn’t get remotely interesting until a little after the six-minute mark), Miller responds to a question about what he thinks of Junie Browning on a technical level by saying: “Nothing.  I don’t think he’s technical at all.”

Miller then goes on to point out that Browning has never tapped out or knocked out anyone who matters, before then comparing him to past opponents like Andy Wang and concluding that Browning is the worst fighter he’s faced in the UFC, next to Allen Berube (ouch!).  

So is Miller right about Browning?  Maybe.  We don’t really know for sure, since all we’ve really seen of him comes from his “Ultimate Fighter” antics and his submission victory over Dave Kaplan, who’s not exactly top-level competition.  But even if he is right, I’m not sure it’s such a great idea to go around talking about how almost-comically bad your next opponent is.  If you manage to get people to believe that he’s one of the worst fighters ever to step into the Octagon, then it’s not enough to just beat him.  You have to beat him quickly and effortlessly, otherwise you look like a punk.


I can understand a little trash talk.  Saying you don’t like a guy, don’t think he’s on your level, vowing to make orphans of his children, that’s all fun stuff.  But when you just harp relentlessly on how unskilled and unqualified is, you may be putting yourself in a no-win situation.  Unless you tap him out via flying armbar seven seconds into the fight.  Wait a minute, I think we’ve stumbled upon Miller’s gameplan.  Watch out, Junie, it’s a trap!

I'd rather shovel my drivey for 3 hours than watch this. That is why I bought a riding snow blower last year and saved my money from these dumb PPV''s.

I wouldn't mind seeing either fighter punch-out that retard Steve Cofield tho, the guy asks the most awkward questions, not the kinda awkward where you want to see the interviewee squirm, the kinda awkward where you are hopin the fighter decides to do a little speed bag training on Cofield's face.

Neither Cole or Junie are top class fighters, they are both able to beat the other guy, but doing so is not going to put them anywhere, they will still be bottom feeders for a long time yet, don't expect champions outta either fighter, this fight has about as much interest as a schoolyard brawl....yawn!!!!!!!!!

Can someone tell me what your basing your Junie predictions on.."he's much better than you think"? and hows that? what are you basing that on...a hunch? trash talk?..he may well surprise miller and beat him, he may well be a real fighter but he has done NOTHING to warrant any respect...did you guys roll with him or spar? no one in the business respects him except some keyboard jockeys who've come from WWF and wanna cheer the bad ass

@ BeesKnees:

What were you expecting from a site called cagepotato? Serious insight? Maybe you should be reading the ufc.com website and all 3 of their articles.

AHHHHH THE BITCHES FROM ROCK OF LOVE WOULD BE SWEEEEEEEEET.

As much as I love this site I am really starting to get sick that both the writers and the commenters are backing that douche bag Junie Browning. Who do you want on the next season of TUF, the bitches from Rock of Love?

question: is there any rules about snacking on a fruit tray between rounds?

Correction....Xtreme Couture vs ATT

Ok...so junie has a big temper...how can you all really sit here and say that Cole Miller has no chance and will get knocked out?

Wasnt it Junie who instigated the trash talk? C;mon now....Cole is a classy guy and I think he's got more tech steez than Junie.

I see Miller submitting this guy for sure...maybe even TKO.

I dunno....Xtreme Couture vs Florida's AKA...should be vicious no doubt.

Sorry meat head douche bags, i think Junie is gonna need more than a cool grenade tattoo on his hand and a sweet hair cut to beat a straight laced tech fighter like Miller.

Look, Cole can beat Junie.. that's for sure..
but if he underestimates him, he'll be in for a long night..
at XC, Junie's only getting better and better.. if he can fight smart, he can beat Cole.. I mean, you can't deny how sick his sub defense was on the show (barring the Efrain fight,which he didn't seem to care about).. like in his first fight, when he fought that asshole, Napolean/Hitler dude, he got out of so many damn submissions in that fight.. every other second was another sub, and he dodged them all until that bastard quit.. Cole's got a great ground game, but if he thinks he's getting an easy win here, he's just wrong..

Mind games. Relax people, mind games.

as much as Junie pissed me off during TUF I can't help but cheer for him. I hope Junie wins by KO.
NateGetsIrate- March 31, 2009 at 11:34 am
I'm just waiting for some fly guy to drop some dope-ass rhymes about this upcoming fight. Ill Mitch ain't got shit on that kid!
CAPS LOCK HAL- March 31, 2009 at 11:32 am
I BELIEVE COLE WILL BE CHANGING HIS OUTLOOK ON JUNIE DURING, AND AFTER THIS FIGHT. SURPRISE COLE, YOU LITTLE MOTHER FUCKER. JUNIE'S MUCH BETTER THEN YOU THINK, AND YOU JUST GOTTA RUN THAT MOUTH, AND GIVE HIM NO CREDIT WHAT SO EVER DON'T YOU. KEEP RUNNING YOUR MOUTH THERE (LITTLE KIMBO) AND YOU'LL BE THE MOTHER FUCKER THAT GETS KNOCKED OUT. AT LEAST PEOPLE DON'T FEEL ANY PAIN WHEN KNOCKED OUT SO THAT WILL BE A PLUS FOR COLE. HE WILL FEEL NO PAIN (UNTILL HE WAKES UP) ANYWAY.
Your Fucking Father- March 31, 2009 at 11:25 am
I am all for hyping a fight but there should still be some amount of respect for your opponent. I mean how is Cole going to feel if Junie submits him in the first after saying how garbage Junie's skills are. Call me crazy but I think Junie has a decent chance to win this fight. And I hope he does by flying armbar so CP can explode in disbelief. Oh and I almost forgot TUF GUY is a huge fucking gay coward.

Cole Miller hasn't faced tough competition? He has a win over Chris Mickle!

That's right, Chris "Go Forward and Get Punched in the Face" Mickle.

I'll expect your resignation on my desk by the end of the day.

Cole Miller hasn't faced tough competition? He beat Leonard Garcia, who was just competing for the WEC featherweight championship. He also went to a decision against Lion Takeshi, who's one of the best 145-pounders in the world. Yeah...total scrubs.

Cole is in a whole different league compared to Junie.
Anonymous- March 31, 2009 at 10:51 am
What's funny is that Cole hasn't faced that tough of competition either. So to say "who has Junie beaten?" is kind of hypocritical when it can easily be thrown back at him.

MONSTAH LOBSTAH!
Angled Dangle- March 31, 2009 at 10:37 am
Not a big Cole fan, but I hope he comes just short of choking the life outta Junie "Bonaparte". Acting like a dumb-dicked dwarf on tv was enough evidence for me to hate this guy.
Mantooth- March 31, 2009 at 10:34 am
Well we will have to wait and see but I think Cole Miller will be getting more of a test than he thinks...hope he's not over looking Browning.
The Carpenter- March 31, 2009 at 10:34 am
Junie 1st Round TKO.
