Cole Miller quiets Junie Browning…for now

Before their fight at Ultimate Fight Night 18, both Cole Miller (15-3) and Junie Browning (3-1) had some harsh words for one another. Browning repeatedly stated that Miller was overrated and Miller made it clear that he thought Browning was a “Douche Bag”. After the fight Miller was the only one who did the talking, shouting “Who’s overrated now?” after forcing Browning to tap out due to a guillotine choke in the first round.

Browning gained fame, good or bad, for his antics on season eight of The Ultimate Fighter. The footage showed Browning starting fights with other fighters and spitting on a black belt in front of the entire cast and their coaches at the UFC training center. Which, for all intents and purposes, seemed moronic considering that both Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, the shows coaches, have black belts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
