This Junie business is where it jumps the shark.

First and foremost, Dana is a businessman. The thing is, this season he moved from the fight promotion business to the reality TV bullshit drama trainwreck business. I've lost some respect for the man because he's sold out the soul of what he did so much to build.

He has previously kicked many people off of the show, giving them the speech about how representing the UFC is an important 24-hour obligation not to be taken lightly. He was right.
This complete about-face is the beginning of the end.

As someone who remembers when MTV was about music videos, I will miss the days when the UFC was about fighting. They are numbered.

Jesse Taylor is watching this season going "WTF?"

Really, it's a joke.

There is a big difference between Taylor and Junie: Taylor menaced people NOT under contract to Zuffa.

Hex I don't agree. You're saying because JT menaced people in the public domain is more sinister than Junie threatening to bottle people & glassing them on prime time TV?

I'm sorry but neither should worthy of leniency.

im not excusing the broken glass, but as far as the legal implications, i bet the zuffa contract covers all medical costs and also mitigates minor injuries like that. it would be insane to run a training camp like the TUF gyms without a clause that mitigates minor skin injuries at the very least. cuts like that can happen easily during standard training. TUF i'm sure covers all bills and I can't see zuffa leaving themselves open to litigation over little cuts in their contract language.

so while it doesn't make what Junie did ok, it certainly makes Zuffa's position better than had he cut some random in a bar. just pointing what could be a relevant difference legally speaking.

If you are looking at it from a position of Dana's integrity... don't. He is there to make money and produce the best fighter possible, thats it.

There was a time when a guy got kicked off of the show for jumping the wall of the house to scam on some chicks. Now a guy can jump the Octogon in a schitzo freakout with no consequence. It's not a legal exposure question, it's a question of maintaining a standard of dedication and behavior. That has been compromised.

Every reality-show failed actor out there already work out plenty and look the part. Now they are all going to train MMA for a month and get on the show. They will act like jackasses and take a dive just to get on TV.

You can make up all the excuses you want. Jesse Taylor was kicked off primarily to stir controversy, ratings, and bring CB back in the competition, plain and simple.

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.

I think junie was a good marketing stunt for the first episodes. But as you have sseen in the last episode he did not got much air-time and did not go apeshit
