Maybe the bad-boy thing wasn't an act. The Ultimate Fighter 8 cast member Junie Browning was arrested in Vegas earlier this week, accused of assaulting three nurses at St. Rose Dominican Hospital.

A report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal states Browning was taken to the hospital after taking 16 Klonopin pills. The report says he took the anti-anxiety drug "in an attempt to harm himself."

Once at the hospital, he allegedly pushed a female nurse and punched and kicked two male nurses. He has since been cut by the UFC.

Coleman 'sissies out'

Nothing much has changed about Tito Ortiz's attitude as he prepares to return to the UFC for UFC 106. In a tweet this week, Ortiz says his opponent, Mark Coleman has pulled out of their fight. In the tweet, he says Coleman 'sissies out' but Ortiz is determined to beat on someone at the Nov. 21 card. Reports say Coleman has been forced to withdraw from the fight due to injury. Ortiz will instead face Forrest Griffin.

UFC prez rips Herschel

UFC president Dana White once again took shots at former NFLer Herschel Walker's planned MMA debut at age 47. Walker had earlier challenged White to a fight for calling him old. White responded on ESPN's Jim Rome is Burning by saying: "Listen, I'm 40 years old, OK, and I'm too old to fight. You're 47. You're way too old to fight."
