                    <blockquote>

After being arrested and subsequently released from the UFC, the former Ultimate Fighter contestant looks back in retrospect and takes full responsibility for his actions.

"Just how dumb I am, and retarded mistakes I make," Browning answered when asked what he takes away from the recent arrest. "Sometimes it's not controllable for me to handle by myself. I'm trying to get help; maybe I need to be on my meds. I get in the cage and fight another human being for money; I'm not the most sane person.

"There's something wrong with all of us. I get kicked out of the UFC for making a mistake, and some fighters can get in their truck and lead the police on a five-mile car chase and they have to pull him out at gun point and they're still fighting. We all make mistakes."

Now working out of the Tapout training center in Las Vegas with coach Shawn Tompkins and fighters such as Sam Stout and Chris Horodecki, it's the new focus that Browning believes will take him to the next level. This time around, though, he's okay taking things slow and easy, and the first step is his fight in The MMA Big Show close to his hometown in Kentucky.

 maybe he wasnt trying to deflect....saying if Rampage came back, maybe I can also. 



Just perspective I guess.



But that lil ignorant fucker was prolly deflecting

 After he fought dave kaplan, i thought he had matured.  he seemed to grow alot and talked alot more 'adult' in the post fight interview.  thats what i get for thinking.....

 kids got issues for sure, but writing him off won't help him

bismanfightclub - Pretty sure Dana already gave him more chances than he deserved to begin with.


 

 

I think you guys need to chill with the Junie hate.

The guy obviously has some mental probs and needs help. I for one hope he gets the help he needs and turns his life around.

I know he has made more than a few but everybody makes mistakes. I think deep down he is a good person that just went through a lot growing up.

MountainMedic -  kids got issues for sure, but writing him off won't help him


Meh, not my problem (I guess taken to the n-th it could eventually be, a la Rampage's rampage using tax dollars, etc.). I want to see the most physically and mentally strong athletes fight when I'm paying my money, not some mental midget that has pissed away opportunities he's been given. I shouldn't have to 'support' him or otherwise give two shits about him because he's been on a reality show and fought once or twice.

He should not be TRYING to get help, he SHOULD just get help imo.

What a fucking puke this guy is

"There's something wrong with all of us. I get kicked out of the UFC for making a mistake, and some fighters can get in their truck and lead the police on a five-mile car chase and they have to pull him out at gun point and they're still fighting. We all make mistakes."


he makes a weak ploy to make people think he's taking responsibility, but he's so stupid he can't help but show his true colors.

Prison or mental hospital. which will he retire to? Whichever it is I hope it happens before he can hurt anyone else.

 no, not at all. but how about you guys stop piling on with such gusto? just an idea-MM 

He is not talented, and won't be successful in the big shows.

Talent or not, Junie will never be seen in the UFC ever again...next topic please?

He needs mental counseling, antidepressants, and drug counseling at the very least. I don't know what other problems he has, but it's clear that he's very depressed, and apparently somewhat suicidal, at least at times. It also seems to me that he can't handle himself with substances. If he really wants to fix himself, he needs to take at least a year off and enter out patient rehab, submit himself to a psychiatrist, take the medicine they prescribe, and do everything he's told by both the psychiatrist and the substance abuse counselors. If he tries to keep fighting before seeking help, he's not ready to accept it yet. I'm not a fan of Junie, but these problems seem pretty apparent to me, and I'm behind anyone willing to admit they have problems and seek the proper help for them. If you're going to say you have a problem and say you need help, but then don't submit to everything you're told to do, you're not going to succeed, sadly. He has to be ready for help, check his ego at the door, and be faithful. Talking about getting help does nothing.

The problem i think most people have is that he is not a great fighter with problems (Ramage). He is a shit fighter who is famous BECAUSE of his problems.

actually a pretty cool guy.
why talk shit about someone without ever being around them or training with them? he's young and still maturing, and has some good foundation with his team, around him. give the guy a break

I felt bad for him up until I clicked on this thread.

He definitely thinks that he got some raw deal and the UFC is doing him bad. I think they went out of their way to accommodate him, personally. I'm sure he sits around and thinks 'It's not fair! Rampage did bad stuff and the UFC didn't kick him out!'. What he doesn't understand is that he isn't an A level fighter...I'd say he is probably a C level fighter at best.

Comments about how the UFC treated Rampage aren't going to do anything but make Dana and the UFC think that they made the right choice releasing you. It definitely shows the immaturity and mindset he has.

Who gives a fuck about his problems.... we all got problems!

How many chances should you get in life.
