Training with Phuket Top Team MMA Training Camp thailand

The thing with Junie Browning……

Ok, Junie never trained with us at Phuket Top Team as he was a part of tiger when he came to Thailand.

However i got to talk with Junie a fair few times and one thing with the guy is that he is very open.

Junie spoke to me a fair bit and was cool in every conversation – friendly, open and wanting to get back into pro fighting.

Since the news broke about junie i have read article on Fight magazine UK and numerous other mma websites and forums quoting about the incident and what “police said” but i know 100% having lived here for 4 years that NONE of these international press people have spoken to any police. They are all quoting off ONE report in ONE newspaper – extremely well known for providing us with the most Bullshit, one sided stories.

Junie isnt a saint, he isnt loved by all and he probably wasnt on the way to returning to his prime mma career….

Junie told me he suffers from panick attacks and anxiety and that seems to lead and provoke alot of the guys issues.

Including perscription substances and drinking.

I wasnt at the fight, and im not saying Junie is innocent on all counts – BUT fuck MMA  media for being so obviously poorly educated and unwilling to find out at all what happened.

People have been quoting off Junies facebook in all there articles… but EVERYONE ingnored the writting on his facebook wall from a lady who witnessed the situation and wrote her view.

The female wrote

“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.”

Now again – the guy isnt a saint – he has been drinking to much and eating xanax & what not…. thats not gonna make you a fighter. Your not about to get fit and dedicated like that. Agreed.

I even had a dig – (more at tiger) for naming his blog Junie Browning “Rebuilding an Image”

The first month he was there the head MMA coach took a photo with his balls out on Junies face – then tried to portray that he went to Thailand and that gym to “Rebuild his image”

So that was my dig – more than AT Junie. So yeah – i dunno, the reports from mma media have always been mentioning some assault or attack on a women. I asked a police today who was there and he said NO. No assault on a woman.

Judge for yourself – but dont listen to bullshit trash MMA media that often writes on this shit.

    Third world countries are real fucked up…trust me I know..everything revolves around money and power, they will always turn things around and fuck someone over with the quickness. I don’t believe Junie would even start shit unless provoked, I met Junie before he is a cool laid back dude.

      I also got to meet Junie a few weeks before he left the US. Honest, laid back and all round good guy. Shame there’s so many ignorant people out there that accept all the crap that sites write about him. Thailand is one crazy place and most people have no idea what its like over there. Wish Junie all the best.

  2. Truth be told

    Urijah Faber has talked about how a similar gang style event happened to him while in Thailand.

    If you pick a fight with a Thai–you’re asking for trouble. They don’t want farangs in their country, and they’ll look for any excuse to stomp a greasy foreigner into the dirt. Fight one, and you’re fighting the whole country.

  4. Just hope he’s ok, very sad, and I think the reason everyone ‘jumped’ on it etc is because well, the gov / police is known to sorta make up what they want out there right lol?!

    Lets get the facts straight, he was asked to leave a bar in Phuket, he kicked off a bar brawl where he assaulted the staff, the staff relatives, an elderly man and a lady(aussie i think) got a broken jaw.
    When they were brought to the hospital and seperated, he found them and kicked off the fracus again, assaulting them whilst some of them were on IV or getting stitched up.
    As for corruption here, yes it exists. If you want to be a dumbass farang you better be rich enough to bail your ass out, when you do dumb shit

    I imagine the truth is somewhere in the middle, Junie is not the first and wont be the last farang to get in a bar fight in Thailand. It Seems nobody knows what happened for sure, although all I will say is that if you are coming to Thailand to train then what are you doing in Night clubs getting wasted ? I would suggest he needs rehab and therapy rather than Muay Thai and Farang Bars, its a shame, because some people would kill to have natural talent like that and it appears on Junie its wasted.
