Former UFC fighter Junie Browning dropped his most recent bout on Friday night, losing to Aaron Hall at Wild Bill's Fight Night in Duluth, Ga., after his corner stopped the fight at Browning's request.
The fight was not without controversy. During weigh-ins, Browning came in .8 pounds heavy, and Hall requested that Browning lose the weight rather than take a piece of Browning's purse. Browning refused and threatened to cancel the fight before the promoters were able to reach a compromise that both fighters accepted.
During the bout, Browning reportedly complained of eye pokes and a groin shot but made it through the first round. While in his corner between rounds, his cornermen called a halt to the fight.
Hall improved to 3-2 with the win.
The often-troubled Browning (4-2) shot to fame on season eight of The Ultimate Fighter, angering other contestants throughout the season as a divisive force in the house. Browning officially went 1-1 in the UFC, defeating Dave Kaplan and losing to Cole Miller.
In October 2009, Browning was arrested in Las Vegas for allegedly assaulting three nurses at a hospital after reportedly taking an overdose of an anti-anxiety drug in an attempt to harm himself. In the wake of the incident, Browning was cut by the UFC. He eventually apologized for the incident and vowed to work on his issues.
He won his first post-UFC fight defeating Scott Cornwell in Nov. 2009 before losing to Hall.
