Jacob Volkmann Talks About His Latest President Obama Controversy (Audio Interview)
By Scott Casber & Nate Lawson (Heavy.com)
More trouble for fighter after Obama comments; Jacob Volkmann has found himself paying the price for his comments once again.
The lightweight, who defeated Efrain Escudero via unanimous decision at UFC 141 last month, used nearly the entirety of his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan to send a message to President Barack Obama in the form of a joke – which came as a surprise to no one.
“A glassectomy is when you cut your belly button out and put a piece of glass in there so when you have your head up your butt you can see where you’re going,” Volkmann told Rogan after the win. Rogan, like nearly most in attendance, didn’t respond well to the joke, though Volkmann seemed content with the statement he was trying to make.
This time, Volkmann was not visited by the Secret Service, like he was after his original Obama comments, which consisted of him challenging the president to an MMA fight but he does find himself paying the price.
Following the comment, the White Bear (Minn.) School District put Volkmann on administrative leave from his gig as a wrestling coach. The Minnesota native went to his Twitter account to deliver the news, simply ending the message with the word “Unethical!”
Here is Volkmann’s interview with PucnhDrunkGamer’s Official Radio Show, Takedown Wrestling Radio and the host Scott Casber:
