UFC NEWS – Mafia Killers, Altered Photo’s and Thai Manhunt Surround Latest Story From Junie Browning, Asks For Americans To Contact Embassy

December 15, 2011 9:27 am by Pedro Carrasco

Earlier this week we featured a story about former UFC lightweight fighter, Junie Browning and his escapades in Thailand.

In the initial report, Thai officials announced a manhunt for Browning after he apparently went on an insane rampage and left a woman, tourists and nurses injured in his path before fleeing the hospital to avoid authorities.

Within a few hours we received a response from Junie himself explaining that while he did break some jaws and orbital bones in Thailand, it was all in self-defense.

No Browning is asking for support from Americans and requesting everyone who can to contact the U.S. Embassy to assist him in his time of need.

He tells the story best:

“Im officially the biggest American patriot there is now. These other primitive countries are all about money, mafia and corrupt law enforcement. Regardless what you believe I never touched a female in theses events that occurred and my girlfriend was there from start to finish to vouch. Hitting Thai women was an excuse for them to demonize me and get some baht out of me. You all don’t understand with my name, people will use it against me. I acted like an idiot on a reality show for publicity so they are using that against me. Im sorry and I care about people more than you thank and I appreciate all the support from the intelligent people that understand that these primitive countries are trying to kill me ( Literally ) . I need help BAD! please call the US Embassy in my regards. Thank you very much everyone.

Apparently in the news story I fled the scene in the hospital before the police got there. It’s obvious by this picture that the police were already there. It wasn’t until hours later my girlfriends and my phone were flooded with phone calls saying that the Thai mafia were headed to the hospital to kill me did we leave. We understood that it is a very corrupt place so we had to flee and get in contact with the US Embassy. Funny how cropping a photo changes the whole story.”
