Weekend Rundown: Browning, Prangley, Clementi Victorious

By Brian Knapp Nov 30, 2009
Junie Allen Browning submitted Scott Cornwell with a first-round triangle choke in the featured bout at MMA Big Show “Onslaught” on Saturday at the Belterra Casino Resort and Spa in Florence, Ind. Though the end came 3:13 into the match, the story did not end there.

Afterward, Browning unleashed a sexually-charged, profanity-laced tirade on the microphone and exited the cage to a chorus of boos.

The 24-year-old gained notoriety during his troubling stint on “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 8. He split two official fights inside the Octagon but earned his walking papers in October after being arrested in Henderson, Nev., for allegedly attacking medical personnel at an area hospital. Browning was brought to the facility after reportedly ingesting 16 anti-anxiety pills.

Far removed from the Browning antics at “Onslaught,” middleweight prospect Mojo Horne put the brakes on a two-fight losing streak with a first-round submission victory over Kevin Barkdull. The rear-naked choke was his weapon of choice.

Prangley Takes Shark Fights Title

UFC, Strikeforce and Maximum Fighting Championships veteran Trevor Prangley defeated Marcus Sursa by first-round submission in the Shark Fights 7 headliner on Saturday at Azteca Music Hall in Amarillo, Texas. The tapout came 4:40 into the opening period and earned Prangley the promotion’s light heavyweight crown.

Prangley, 37, has posted 11 wins in 12 fights, losing only to reigning Sengoku middleweight champion Jorge Santiago in that span. The accomplished South African, finished only twice in 27 career bouts, will carry a five-fight winning streak into his next appearance.

Clementi Submits Stringer at ‘Nightmare’

UFC castoff Rich Clementi submitted Chris Stringer by second-round submission in the marquee matchup at Cage Wars “Nightmare” on Sunday at Kings Hall in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Clementi made the most of the 4,300-mile trip, as he cinched a fight-ending triangle choke 3:11 into round two.

Released by the UFC in wake of his submission loss to American Top Team’s Gleison Tibau in February, Clementi has delivered two wins in three fights since. Now a veteran of 50 professional fights, his victory over Stringer marked his first appearance since he suffered a broken collarbone in a technical knockout loss to Kyle Jensen over the summer.

His career given new life through his appearance on “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 4 in 2006, Clementi, a Slidell, La., native, has secured half (17) of his 34 career wins by submission. His list of victims includes Anthony Johnson, Melvin Guillard and former International Fight League lightweight champion Ryan Schultz.

Dantas Stops Roberto at Shooto Brazil 14

Brazilian prospect Eduardo Dantas stopped Carlos Roberto on second-round strikes in the Shooto Brazil 14 main event on Saturday at the Bennett Methodist Institute Auditorium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 20-year-old Dantas rebounded nicely from his decision loss to world-ranked Shooto champion Masakatsu Ueda in July. Based out of the same Nova Uniao camp that produced reigning World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight champion Jose Aldo, “Dudu” has won six of his last seven fights.
