Junie Browning Claims Phuket Assault Story Is a Shakedown, Fled Hospital to Avoid Being Killed by Thai Mafia

(Well, it was a nice vacation while it lasted.)

On Tuesday, we let out a long, weary sigh when we heard news that TUF 8 madman Junie Browning had allegedly beat up a woman at a bar, then beat up the bar’s staff and guests, then continued to beat up all of them later at a hospital. Considering Junie’s history of hospital violence, the story was all too believable.

Of course, Browning has his own version of the events, which paint him as a marked man in a corrupt country, doing his best to defend himself. Here’s what he wrote on his Facebook page immediately after the incident:

Wow what a helluva weekend?!.. Some pussy named Sie Menzies and about 10 of his friends started a fight with me, I guess just to test a ‘UFC fighter guy’ at his shitty little bar in Karan Thailand. Had a beer bottle and glass mug shattered on my head then to make everything better, stabbed severely by some crazy Thai bitch. On a positive note I managed to break a few orbital bones, at least a couple jaws, and some unconscious bodies laying on the ground before I blacked out from loss of blood and apparently had to be resuscitated in the ambulance. So, how was your weekend?

Once the gravity of situation sets in, Junie becomes deathly serious:

“Im officially the biggest American patriot there is now. These other primitive countries are all about money, mafia and corrupt law enforcement. Regardless what you believe I never touched a female in theses events that occurred and my girlfriend was there from start to finish to vouch. Hitting Thai women was an excuse for them to demonize me and get some baht out of me. You all don’t understand with my name, people will use it against me. I acted like an idiot on a reality show for publicity so they are using that against me. Im sorry and I care about people more than you thank and I appreciate all the support from the intelligent people that understand that these primitive countries are trying to kill me ( Literally ) . I need help BAD! please call the US Embassy in my regards. Thank you very much everyone.

Apparently in the news story I fled the scene in the hospital before the police got there. It’s obvious by this picture that the police were already there. It wasn’t until hours later my girlfriends and my phone were flooded with phone calls saying that the Thai mafia were headed to the hospital to kill me did we leave. We understood that it is a very corrupt place so we had to flee and get in contact with the US Embassy. Funny how cropping a photo changes the whole story.

In a follow-up post on his Facebook wall, a woman believed to be Junie’s girlfriend supported the story with some gory details of her own:

The Thai government is so corrupt! For anyone out there that knows the story about what is going on with Junie Browning, it is not true!

When two men get into an argument it should stay between them. 15 guys jumped on top of Junie and smashed his head in with glass bottles and beer mugs. I had to throw myself on top of his body while he gargled blood and they continued to kick him. Then even after… he lay unconscious some Thai girl stabs him!!!

If you know me then you know I would not make this up. I was there from start to finish.
Then you take all the guys from the brawl into the same room in the hospital? What do you expect to happen? Listen, this is not the USA this is Thailand. The country revolves around money and the mafia DOES exist. When you get a phone call saying that there is a price on your boyfriends head and if they find you they will kill you too just to get to him you run.

Junie Allen Browning did nothing but fight for his life and try to protect me. All the media and mma forums like to talk shit because it makes a good story. Get a clue! You like to sit on your couch at home and watch the discovery channel and think you know what it is like around the world? That’s retarded! No women were involved in the fight and Junie did nothing that wasn’t provoked.”

Junie’s exact whereabouts are still unknown.

Mofo- December 16, 2011 at 7:36 pm
I thought Junie was a likable guy myself. Hope he makes it out of this shit in one piece.
Hey Junie... watch out for yer corn hole, bud.
ThePeoplesTroll- December 16, 2011 at 12:34 pm
The thai mafia is just a bunch of dirty dirty rats and don't play by any rules. They are the scum of the earth

I heard a monkey and face-tattoo were involved. Did anyone check the stuck elevator to see if Junie is in there?
BEricMMA- December 16, 2011 at 9:47 am
I absolutely believe that the version of events was as the girlfriend said, Junie probably got into it with the bar owner, got jumped, and I honestly believe he's on the run for his life.

I hope the Embassy helps him. I can relate to him more than I'd like to admit and I've changed my life, I'd hate for stuff I did years and years ago to make people say that I deserve to be murdered in Thailand.

@Kyboy No it is not the right of an american to go stampeding about like a complete jackass, that right is solely reserved for jackasses just like it is the right of other people to stomp said jackass.

kyboy sez "The people on this post absolutely amaze me.. This is an American Citizen that you only know because of a reality show, and now you know him well enough to assume he’s guilty in a corrupt third world country?"

I assume nothing about the guilt or innocence of JB, nor do I feel bad for him or any other american that goes abroad expecting the same treatment we recieve in this country. The person I may sympathize for is his gf. We live and die by the choices we make, and nobody forced him to travel to Thailand.

The people on this post absolutely amaze me.. This is an American Citizen that you only know because of a reality show, and now you know him well enough to assume he's guilty in a corrupt third world country? I've never met Junie, but I watched the same Ultimate Fighter episodes that everyone else has. I've seen him around town and at the bars, and I've seen him in his share of drunken episodes in person, and on TV.. But I have the common sense to realize that what the Thais are saying could possibly be fabricated. If money talks, it's not too difficult to believe that news could get twisted to oust Junie so his enemy could reach him faster. I agree that Junie has made some mistakes, and it's obvious that he isn't the most keen when it comes to public relations. He's real and uncut, with no filter.... But isn't it the right of an American to be that way?

Like I said, I don't know him, but I do know his girlfriend. To your surprise, she's actually one of the sweetest and innocent girls I've ever met. I was a little shocked to find out she was serious about the relationship, but it's the typical good girl falling for the bad boy routine. Now, she is an American, but she hasn't been on any reality show so of course, she wouldn't possibly get the benefit of the doubt on this board.

It's 2 Americans in Thialand... They aren't going to any prison if they're found. If you undersand the gravity of this situation, you know that they're either smuggled back to the US or it's their lives. It's pretty sad that you have to die before anybody cares to hear the real story in our country... I would feel sorry for anybody wrongly accused in a courtroom with the "Jurors" of this blog.

Allen and LN, if you're reading this, my thoughts and prayers are with you two!! Make it back safe!

@ Andyinflammatory, too true mate, this piece of shit wouldn't be able to handle a real Thai training camp, and a fucken albino monkey like this little puke has the hide to disrespect the Thai's?
fightfan- December 15, 2011 at 8:59 pm
One word about sums it up.....


All those years of doing jackassy things, douchebag behavior & criminal activity finally caught up with up
AndyInflammatory- December 15, 2011 at 8:41 pm
real fighters go to Thailand to train,Junie Browning goes to get wasted in bars.

Then he has the nerve to call Thailand "primitive" while he's crying for help on Facebook?
fightfan- December 15, 2011 at 7:56 pm
The woman did say it started with Junie arguing with someone else. She did say when "two men get into an argument it should stay between them". Then afterwards Junie got attacked by "15 more men"

My guess is Junie threw a beer bottle at someone. Then they got into it and Junie's loudmouth got him into a world of shit.

Anyone with problems drinking or a habit of going crazy when they drink shouldnt go into a 3rd world country, into a bar, alone with a girl and even look at someone wrong. I'll bet that Junie in some way started it with his history. What was he doing there in the 1st place?

Maybe this is just a big publicity stunt, since he cant win a mma fight and no one cares about him or mentions his name unless he is beating up women or threatening to rape people. Maybe he set this all up? He's not getting into the news unless its for doing something bad or illegal
Irishwolfhound491- December 15, 2011 at 7:28 pm
Yeah gotta call bullshit on this one. If it were anyone other than Junie Browning than maybe I'd believe this version but come on, the guys nuts. He says he pretended while he was on the show? Pretty good actor. Did he also pretend when he attempted to commit suicide, beat up a bunch of orderlies and told half the hospital he'd rape their families? Clearly the dude cannot control himself while under influence so who's to say he didn't hit some chick? Also the only person collaborating his story is his girlfriend. Well gee no shit she's gonna take his side.

Also the whole "being a UFC fighter that they're trying to take advantage of" and "wanted to test themselves against a UFC fighter" is just retarded. Junie Browning is a foot note on the pimple on the part of the taint a mirror is needed to see of history (takes breathe.) The dude is famous for being a loony on a reality tv show. How many people do you think in Thailand even knows him? Also if they're on vacation how did they get in touch with people who can warn them that the Thai mafia is after them?

I think this is just a case of a couple of idiots trying to play off of American's naivete when it comes to foreign affairs. Come on guys: this is Junie fucking Browning we're talking about!!!
fatbellyfrank- December 15, 2011 at 7:14 pm
memo to junie, your not a "UFC guy" and you never were, must be terrible being so famous.
Someone plant some smack on him so the Thai's can hang him.
macreadysshack- December 15, 2011 at 6:49 pm
@edhedicus I think he's just being lazy and exaggerating with his language. Obviously, he didn't 'bleed out'. Still, he may have 'passed out' from fatigue, shock and blood loss and then recovered enough to high tail it out of a place where he thought people were coming to KILL him and his girl. Just saying. I don't know what to actually believe.
macreadysshack- December 15, 2011 at 6:46 pm
Lol, this is a tough one. I had a run in with the Mafia in Bangkok - I ran for my life when I couldn't come up with $10K that they said I 'owed' them. All I did was go to a Chick's house to help her learn english for an alleged upcoming trip to the States. Hey, it was my first time traveling on my own and I was retarded. Anywhoo, yeah, shit like this really can happen. Junie is such a douche, though. Damn it. I don't know who to believe. I hope the truth actually comes to light. It would be nice to know what actually happened just because, man o man, do I know the feeling. I was like Jason fucking Bourne changing taxis at different hotels: running from one hotel to another, hopping in different taxi, eventually making my way to the second farthest bus station I could possibly find (because they might suspect the farthest - LOL).
edhedicus- December 15, 2011 at 6:40 pm
So he is saying that he died from exsanguation in the back of an ambulance in a third world country, got 'revived', suffered no deficit, and was able to write about it. Yeah, that could happen....

I'm guessing you haven't been down to TJ in a very long time.
BONGTAR- December 15, 2011 at 3:41 pm
anyone dude who paints his toenails, and thinks it's cool, has got to be guilty in my book.
2DaDeath- December 15, 2011 at 3:17 pm
His whereabouts are still unknown? If he is hiding out somewhere, then this is gonna turn out like either a Leanardo DiCaprio movie or a JCVD movie. I just hope he ends of fighting a real-life Tom Po!
Viva Hate- December 15, 2011 at 3:13 pm
Woah! Woah! Woah! I am calling shenanigans, first there is no way that psychopath has a girlfriend. Second, if he did there is no way she could put out such a coherent statement.
Phuket is the notorious sex trade capitol of the world, Junie had to stiff a hooker at a go go bar after stiffing her, and then got dealt with. Phuket makes Tijuana look like Disneyland. But hey, at least he didn't pull a Gary Glitter down there.
