Junie Browning's Brother On TUF 9
 
Double trouble? Junie Browning's brother on "The Ultimate Fighter 9"
by Dann Stupp on Feb 13, 2009 at 1:15 pm ET
The upcoming ninth edition of "The Ultimate Fighter," which debuts April 1 on Spike TV with a U.S. vs. U.K. theme, will feature at least one familiar last name.

A source close to the fighter has told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Robert Browning (1-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), the younger brother of controversial season-eight cast member Junie Browning, was one of 16 American fighters chosen to compete in the season-opening elimination round.

The show is currently in production, and the 22-year-old Browning is in Las Vegas with the other American and British participants.

As with other recent seasons of the show, "TUF 9" uses a 32-man tournament format (broken into two different weight classes). Each fighter must win an elimination-round bout to earn a spot on the official 16-person TV cast. The show will ultimately feature eight welterweight fighters and eight lightweights.

(To avoid spoilers, we aren't revealing the outcome of Browning's fight.)

"The Ultimate Fighter 9: U.S. vs. U.K." began production earlier this month. Former PRIDE champion Dan Henderson heads the U.S. team, and Michael Bisping, who was the middleweight winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 3," leads the U.K. squad. The show debuts on April 1 after a broadcast of UFC Fight Night 18.

According to the MMA.tv database, Robert Browning has a 1-0 professional record and a 4-2 amateur mark. He's fought exclusively in organizations in his home state of Kentucky, which included the American Fight League, where he holds the organization's amateur featherweight title. (One AFL fight, which included a colorful cage entrance and some questionable in-ring antics, can be found below.)

His brother, Junie Browning, a lightweight semifinalist for Team Mir on "The Ultimate Fighter 8," was nearly kicked off the show multiple times due to a series of outbursts, usually fueled by alcohol. He threw glasses at fellow cast members Kyle Kingsbury and Shane Primm, and UFC President Dana White read Junie the riot act on more than one occasion. He was knocked out of the competition by eventual show winner Efrain Escudero, but Junie rebounded for a second-round submission victory over Dave Kaplan at the show's live finale. He next meets Cole Miller in a UFC Fight Night 18 televised main-card bout on April 1.

Our source told MMAjunkie.com that Robert Browning, like his big brother, also creates some drama before he even steps into the cage.

somehow this doesnt surprise me. it will obviously help get more viewers and get guys like me who have no interest in watching this season to watch it (i dont care much for the coaches even though henderson is a good fighter). of course im still not going to watch it though lol.

Five bucks says he either talks $h!t to some British fighter after he wins or he fails to make weight.

i dont think it would be possible for him to not make weight considering he fights at featherweight and has fought at 135 as well numerous times. that alone tells you that he is there purely for ratings since he obviously doesnt belong at lightweight. Your first prediction however may be spot on.

I'm hoping against hope that he behaves better than Junie! Can't they find a good fighter from my state that Kentucky can be proud of? By the way Kentuckian on here that has a video of them fighting I hope they post it! Especially the wins!

If I remember correctly, on Season 8, they had the brother of the current LHW champion and brother of some guy named Clay Guida - both of them were the biggest jokes in the history of the show. Neither one made it and neither of them were in shape. I'm predicting the same with these guys.
