UFC fans who’d hoped to have seen the last of annoying Ultimate Fighter reality show contestant Junie Browning can now groan collectively.
Plenty of UFC fans cheered passionately as Browning was eliminated in Wednesday’s semifinal episode in a tapout loss to Efrain Escudero.
However, Browning will join the undercard of The Ultimate Fighter: Nogueira vs. Mir Finale on Dec. 13 live at 8 p.m. on Spike TV.
Browning whined incessantly, as a spectator inexplicably jumped into the Octagon following a match, threw tantrums, broke glasses and threw out of the ring punches at a fellow cast member during the recent series.
