EDIT: I forgot to add, I thought maybe he is doing this on purpose, trying to stand out to people watching the show and grab as much fame as he can. Just a theory, and it seems like a risky strategy if that's what he is doing.
He said why he is doing it and I believe him. He is self destructive. He is trying to screw up and eventually he'll succeed.

Having said that, a huge portion of blame lies with the producers. They isolate these guys and limit their activities drastically (no books, no contact with family/friends) but unlimited alcohol. The only purpose of retarded rules like that is to try and generate confrontation and every season it succeeds.

They then proceed to wag their finger at the fighters for being out of control idiots. The hypocrisy makes me sick.

I'm not absolving Junie, he can control himself and he didn't. He made choices but the producers are going out of their way to set guys like him up for failure.
