(Oh, for the love of God, no. Props: MMA Junkie.)
Last season of The Ultimate Fighter introduced to us to a Kentucky-bred fighter named Junie Browning, whose crippling insecurities, alcoholism, and violent outbursts made him the show’s standout trainwreck — no small feat, considering all the sheet-pissing, semen-eating antics that were going on in the house. With the widespread criticism that the season received from MMA fans and other fighters, you’d think that the UFC would tighten up their TUF vetting process so that future unhinged psychos wouldn’t be allowed in to embarrass the organization and the sport as a whole. Well, not so much:
We first caught a glimpse of Rob in this local sports-show interview — way back when "Junie" was "Allen." But who ever thought we’d see him in the UFC one day? He’s a natural featherweight, for one thing. Plus, they already rolled the dice on one Browning brother. Could Junie have been that good for ratings? Is the UFC hoping for the same controversial behavior out of Rob? Anyway, he’s Dan Henderson‘s problem now, which is a fortunate thing, because Team UK coach Michael Bisping won’t stand for any house-trashing, drunken antics. I know it’s not right to judge a guy based on the behavior of his brother, but…let’s just say we have a feeling about this one.
