While Junie Browning's brief trip to the hospital at the start of October gained a reasonable amount of coverage, his return to the cage tonight in Belterra, Indiana for the MMA Big Show: Onslaught main event mostly stayed under the radar.
Inspired by BE's own Brent Brookhouse's attempted interviews with Big Show big wig Jason Arnold, Heavy.com offers their thoughts on the prospect of putting Browning back in the cage so soon and wonders if others would be doing the same if this was taking place under the bright lights of the UFC.
If Dana White had put Quinton "Rampage" Jackson back into the main event of a UFC card less than two months removed from his dangerous vehicular voyage after losing to Forrest Griffin, the uproar and outrage would have been deafening.
Ultimately, everyone is trying to gain as much exposure and bring in as much revenue as possible. But when does the health and well-being of the fighter supersede the need to turn a profit?
Less than two months ago, Junie Browning looked like a troubled kid on the edge of a serious breakdown. Now he's returning to the ring?
Some people think the decision is dangerous, while others will surely say, "Let him fight!"
