I would have loved to have seen Nog just put him down. Junie's little impulse control issues have no place in the sport. His attitude towards his peers is one thing, but what is to stop him from holding a choke or breaking a limb in practice or competition? If his behavior is anything more than simply playing up to the cameras he really needs to lose his license.

When I knew he wasn't going to be kicked off I changed it to watch the debate and only changed it back until they moved on to something else. Since it looks like Junie is fighting next week- I honestly won't watch any of the show until it gets close to the fight. I can't handle anymore of listening to this freakin inbred moron actually try and use the english language or use trailerpark logic.

He opens his mouth and all I hear is this:

Honestly, I understand that they have a Reality show to promote, but keeping Junie is just ridiculous. That's exactly the kind of people that I don't want getting into MMA.

I'm just sick of the whole concept at this point.

I don't think anyone can fathom the number of attention-starved buttholes that are watching this season planning to someday be the next Junie Browning.

I'll be skipping the next episode and just catch the fight at the end. And if Junie's ever on a PPV, I won't buy it, just because he's on it. I think this is a really bad direction to take the sport in.

Junie is a looney, but if everyone is so sure he has no talent, why make a big deal if hes going to be eliminated by someone in the show? Aside from that, I'm taking Phillipe as the winner, hopefully against Junie in the finale. I think if Junie backs up his talk, this would make for an epic fight.

Epic and Junie should never be used in the same sentence.

What Junie has done so far this season, had this been Danny Abbadi or Wayne Weems dude would have been gone by now. Not only does Junie fit the bill when Dana talks his shit about "bad for the sport" but the guy is just an incredible idiot, Junie that is.
JT was booted cause he pissed off dana's friends...

think about who owns the place Taylor was making a scene .

Not while he was on the TUF show. BJ Penn slugged a cop and they didn't fire him either. The UFC has historically cared more about a fighter's ability than his actions outside the Octagon, except on the TUF show.

What standard of dedication and behavior? They still kick people off for jumping the wall, that's because they don't want the outside world knowing what's going on in the house so they guys can't be out of the house unsupervised until the show is done taping. Jumping into the octagon was wacky but its not really that bad (not that uncommon in mma fact) since the fight was over.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

From the preview of next weeks show, it looked like the fight goes to a second round, an that shit head Junie looked pretty roughed up. Just imagine how bad the the guy is going to get if he loses the fight, and has nothing to lose by gettin' the boot.

I don't care who he pissed off.

They are the same antics only two different situations. Jesse was booted for ratings and to bring CB in. Junie wasn't booted for ratings and to keep him in the house.

Plain and simple, now move on.

True, but what it seems like double standards.
Wasn't BJ's run in with that cop when he wasn't on contract with the UFC?
