After going berserk in a Las Vegas hospital last week following an apparent suicide attempt and being cut from the UFC, Junie Browning recently took some time out to issue an apology to his fans, critics, and all of those involved in the unfortunate incident.
The controversial former TUF 8 cast member recently spoke with rawvegas.tv to share his feelings on his current situation:
The problem is that when I make a mistake, I make a really bad mistake. It’s not a DUI. It’s not like getting pulled over or something. When I make a mistake I lose control and make a really bad mistake, and that’s definitely what I’m apologizing for.
I just want to take this opportunity to apologize to anyone that was involved in that incident the other night. I truly am very, very sorry.
Pretty much my whole life I’ve been chased by demons, and I’ve had a lot of problems. I mean, it’s pretty obvious. I’m going to continue on working on the problems I have and stuff, but again, I just want to apologize to everyone that was involved. It was a horrible thing that happened.
At this point I’m not just concerned with making myself a better fighter. I mean, it’s obvious that I have a lot more issues than that, so I’m also trying to prove myself as a person. If I have to get help, then I’m going to do that. I’m going to do whatever I have to do to better myself as a person.
Shawn Tompkins took me in and really helped me out a lot, and I even feel like I let him down, but he’s still sticking with me, so it’s awesome. I’m going to prove myself, and I promise you I will get better.
