Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Junie Browning Turning His Life Around at Xtreme Couture?

(Does that look infected to you? Photo courtesy of

Following in the footsteps of fighters like Mac Danzig and Amir Sadollah, Junie Browning is the latest Ultimate Fighter notable to re-focus his training at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas. MMA Weekly has confirmed that Browning started training with the camp about a week and a half ago, and so far he hasn’t tried to throw training equipment into the hot tub or jump off the roof:

“He’s been very quiet in the gym, there’s been no antics, there’s been no nothing,” [Randy] Couture said. “He shows up everyday and straps his gloves on and gets his work done.”

In other words, he’s functioning like a normal person, which is quite an achievement for the Kentucky native. At any rate, he’ll be whipped into shape by the team at XC, which includes UFC lightweights Tyson Griffin and Gray Maynard — who hopefully haven’t taken Junie’s “boring fucking wrestlers” comments too personally.

Related: Junie’s latest TUF blog for is up, where he discusses the wave of interviews he had to do last week, Team Nog’s family-vibe, and the Jules/Vinny scrap (“To be honest, I don’t think Jules could have won a fight at 155″).

Junie Browning has to be the biggest loser I have ever seen. He seems like an Inbred moron with no control at all. His fights are sooooo boring due to his total lack of skills. What a cry baby.
He needs a tatoo on his forehead that says "IM A RETARD". Why does he think that he is a good fighter? Must be from beating up little kids or something lame. His behavior makes the entire sport look bad, like a typical thug that would use any training he gets to beat up on any civilian that makes him mad. We all have seen him fight someone with training (and lose like a bitch) so he will most likely pick on normal people to actually win a fight. Im still not sure why he thinks he is such a good fighter, its kinda like those idiots on American Idol that think they can sing good, and we all just laugh at them. Junie look up the word Delusional in the dictionary and it will say: a fixed false belief that is resistant to reason or confrontation with actual fact. That is you for sure!

If you got into the ring knowing the guy cannot knock you out, wouldn't you have a field day with them? LoL I know for damn sure I would. All us bloggers talking shit, im from the Indiana Area so just out of nature I root for Junie trash talkers build up the ampage for the show. But help me out here, where are the semi finals at lke when does Junie fight the MEXICAN guy.

How the fuck can you guys say he is awesome and that he sure can fight? That last scrap had to be the most boring TUF fight I've ever seen. How could he not finish that guy? Maybe he should have put a tattoo of a vag on his hand 'cause he hits like a puss.

I agree i dont think Jules could have won at 155!! who the f is this guy?? he looked like the gay kid on my little league team who pretty much everyone knew he was a fruit except for his dad/coach and the kid could not swing at pitch or even stay in the batters box for the life of him......anyways one day we get him to stay in the batters box and he got hit in the face by a pitch....pretty cool. but, yea jules was like him.

Fine I'll be the first to answer your question...No it does not look infected just fresh.

lol Dave, that was cold.

Lotsa junie hate going on; personally I don't care either way. I think he has potential though. If he can put in the work and develop into a great fighter it'll be a lot of fun to see him in the octagon.

"In other words, he’s functioning like a normal person, which is quite an achievement for ANY Kentucky native."

I fixed that sentence for you

I'm a firm believer that actions have consequences. Junie paved his own path and deserves what he is getting. Luckily for him, most people like redemption stories. Look at how Leben acts now. Browning might be at the right place to turn his life around in Xtreme Couture. Vegas has a lot of temptations though. Hopefully he can keep his head on straight and we'll see this guy mature into a man and a fighter.

I'm through bashing on him, I think everyone got the public opinion of him a couple of posts back. and yes if your gonna be a Fighter you WILL eventually need fans on yourside. I will never respect this guy and i will never pay for a ppv that has this guy on it unless theres a GSP Silva GP i bet this kid just withers away falls to strikeforce then just falls right outta the spotlight and i personally cant wait!Or will it just be quick and go the mongo route hmmm!

The tattoo is cool as a mufucka!
Like all of our mothers told us, "if you don't have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all."
Look, Junie is a knucklehead, but that doesn't mean he can't be molded into a decent mma fighter. "They say" he has decent raw talent so, I say we just wait and see. No need to bad mouth anyone, the fights will tell us everything we need to know about everyone. If Captain America sees enough in him to let him join his team, I think he deserves a chance to show he can get and stay focused with his fighting. Kind of the same scenerio as Kimbo and Bas.

Glen Mccoy - wtf ru talking about with Mir? Mir simply thinks that a guy with multiple world BJJ titles might be better at BJJ than Big Nog...... How is that calling him a bad fighter? it means that a guy who has concentraited on ONE thing may be better at that one thing than a guy who is fluent at multiple styles.

"I would like to see an after shot of what it looks like now…."

Man it just kills you to see him doing well. Saw the tattoo last week before he flew out, still looks great. Had the tattoo when he was fighting in the AFL. Funny thing was last night after the show I said even though they showed him for nearly two minutes being humble, that people were gonna find something else to bash him for on this forum. And this guy is talking about a tattoo and the trailer park jokes.

Good to know...this further more express's my previous statements saying that Junie is a force to be reconed with. He may be wild but GOD DAMN can the man fight.

keep on keepin on Junie...

Fenix- October 29, 2008 at 2:36 pm
I think the tatt looks pretty sick actually, but yeah if he just got it for the show thats retarded. Who knows though...
Glen McCoy- October 29, 2008 at 2:35 pm
If junie is so tuf and a bad ass why don't he try to spit on Tyson Griffin and see what happens without Frank Mir to back him up.Yea junie why dont you disrespect Randy and see what happens.Junie is not so bad without his BITCH frank mir to back him up. And if mir thinks Big Nog is not a good fighter,why is NOG and not pussyfied mir the world champion.I think Frank Mir and junie owe the mma and the fans a big I am sorry.
Woody- October 29, 2008 at 2:34 pm
Congrats Big Guy! About time you get recognized for something positive!! hahahaha
UFCINCALGARY- October 29, 2008 at 2:33 pm
That is one of the dumbest tattoos ever.

Way to take a page out of War Machine's book of how to fuck up your life.

It looks as if he just got it done for the show.... which is even more retarded, cause you have to put on the gloves everyday, and it wont have a chance to heal properly.....

I would like to see an after shot of what it looks like now....

Heres to getting a stupid neck tattoo next .....trailer trash!

Does anybody know ahead of time if this kid actually wins the TUF fights all the way through?
