Junie Opens Up
After a particularly agonizing loss, Junie Browning opens up for Spike.com to share all of his most intimate secrets. OK maybe not, but he talks about his relationship with Frank Mir, his anger problem and banging sluts. It's good, family fun. Hit the jump. SP: Hey Junie, how's it going?
JB: Well, I'm probably the most hated man in America right now. But I bet I made a lot of people happy at least.
SP: I wouldn't go that far... Anyway, I only have a few questions, so let's get started. You said several times that you would quit fighting if you couldn't beat Efrain, but that hasn't happened, so what's up with the change of heart?
JB: You know, sometimes you're upset, especially after you get your ass beat by the dude you were talking shit to the whole season, you get upset. I was down on myself. And you do those interviews immediately after the fight, so it's hard to stay positive. When I went back and thought about it, I realized that it wasn't my 100 percent. I would never quit if I knew it wasn't 100 percent.
SP: And you're over at Extreme Couture now, right?
JB: Yeah, it's awesome over there. It was the best thing for me.
SP: Yeah, those guys are nuts... You seemed to have blown up on Shane Primm for no apparent reason. What was it that set you off? Or was there more to it than what we saw?
JB: There was a lot more actually. There was like 10 minutes more and it wasn't even that comment that set me off. It was another comment. He was telling me that he hoped I got beat and stuff. The whole thing started as kind of a debate, you know like friends talking about a football game or something. He was the one who took it too far first. He started taking stuff personal. I was talking match-ups, nothing personal, I just said ‘I think this person is better on the ground or whatever,' and he started with "Well I hope you get your ass kicked." It was actually around then when I threw the glass at him. I have a tad bit of an anger problem, so I don't think anybody was too surprised by that.
SP: You said many times that cardio was a big problem for you, but it seemed like Frank Mir really drilled you guys with the cardio, so what was up with that?
JB: (Rafael) Alejarra, I think his name was, came in for like a week or so and the cardio was awesome. It was really good. But that was for like a week and that was it, so we were left training ourselves. And it wasn't necessarily Mir running the cardio, it was the other guys who didn't train. Most of the guys would sit around smoking the peace pipe and talking about how awesome they were. You can't train yourself, you need good training partners. Plus, after my Roli fight, they didn't show it, but I threw a kick and hurt my foot so I couldn't train for like a week and a half. I couldn't even walk on it.
SP: You think you would have done better on the other team?
