Xtreme Couture Coach Shawn Tompkins: Ultimate Fighter's Junie Browning 'Like a Son'

Shawn Tompkins, the head coach at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, took Junie Browning under his wing after Browning's stint on The Ultimate Fighter ended. Tompkins talks about his training of Browning:

"Junie's like a son to me," Tompkins said. "I moved him into my house. That was one of the conditions, I will train him but he had to live with me. It's been two great months. He never missed a training session."

I would have to say that moving Junie Browning into my house is just about the last thing I would want to do, but I admire Tompkins' coaching: Browning whipped Dave Kaplan on Saturday night and looked like he had significantly improved as a striker. Tompkins' methods worked.
