Junie Bugin' Out?

If you ask him, then he’s fought his last fight in the UFC’s Octagon. With yet another setback in his “budding” MMA career, Junie Browning fears that his 1stRound loss to Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 18 punched his ticket to the front of the unemployment line.

“With as many lightweights as there are in the UFC, that was probably my last fight…,” Browning stated. “I would like to keep fighting, but it’s pretty hard to stay in the UFC, especially in the lightweight division. One loss puts you on the verge of being cut.”

Chances are that Browning may be jumping the gun on his UFC exit because, for some reason, company president Dana White has been soft on the troubled fighter in the past.

After numerous run-ins during his stint on last season’s The Ultimate Fighter 8, White extended multiple life lines to keep the controversial fighter in the house.

No word on when, or if, the UFC plans to call the Xtreme Couture fighter in for action.
