Junie Browning gets submission victory at MMA Big Show – has a special message for the ladies

Junie still the bad boy.
Junie still the bad boy.

ProMMA.info provided a live play by play of Saturday night’s “MMA Big Show: Onslaught” which took place in Florence, Ind., and was headlined by none other than The Ultimate Fighter veteran Junie “The Lunatik” Browning taking on Taekwondo black belt Scott Cornwell.

Despite his troubles outside the cage, Browning proved he still had skills that surpass your average Taekwondo black belt by dropping Cornwell to the mat with his very first punch. Junie quickly pounced on his opponent, and at one point tried to put him in a gogoplata. He actually got pretty close, but ended up settling for a trusty triangle submission.

Browning controlled the entire 3:13 fight and was never in any danger. Following the bout, the microphone was handed to Cornwell who was apologetic and genuinely displeased with his performance. The crowd applauded Cornwell’s effort, in what was only his second professional bout.

Apparently, Junie “The Lunatik” Browning had some trouble making weight last night for his scheduled 155 lbs. match-up against Scott Cornwell at “MMA Big Show: Onslaught,” taking place tonight at Belterra Casino in Florence, Ind.

A report on MMA Big Show’s blog indicates Junie showed up a half hour late to weigh-ins with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. Upon stepping on the scale, he weighed in at one pound over. His opponent, Cornwell, obviously gifted with an entrepreneurial spirit, offered to let Junie keep the extra pound in exchange for $100 of his purse. Junie happily obliged.

In a recent interview, Cornwell said he believed Junie made a name for himself “not from fighting, but from other things he was doing on The Ultimate Fighter.” Regardless of that, he feels a win over Junie will benefit his career, because comparatively, he does have a “big name.”

Upcoming MMA events – December preview

With the TUF 10 Finale, UFC 107, WEC 45, Strikeforce: Evolution, and New Year's Eve in Japan, December is another stacked month of action for MMA fans.

The month of November was huge for MMA fans. We had Sengoku 11, Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers, UFC 105, WEC 44, Strikeforce – Challengers Series 5, and UFC 106. We also had The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights each Wednesday night.

These shows produced some of the best fights of the year. “Pee Wee” Herman knocked out “Big” Jim York with a crazy heel smash, Fedor knocked out Brett Rogers, Dan Hardy took out Mike Swick, Michael Bisping finished Denis Kang, Jose Aldo knocked out Mike Brown, Josh Koscheck choked out Anthony Johnson, and “Lil’ Nog” made a very impressive UFC debut with his knockout of Luiz Cane.

Let’s take a look forward to December to see what big shows we have coming up.
