Jacob Volkmann Talks Obama, Controversy & His UFC Future
By Scott Casber
There’s no way Jacob Volkmann could have predicted the aftermath of his tongue-in-cheek call out of President Barack Obama after UFC 125, but the Minnesota lightweight knows one thing: he’s going to roll with it.
Volkmann, whose post-fight interview with MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani has garnered more mainstream attention than perhaps any fight interview in years, told Helwani on “The MMA Hour” Monday that he doesn’t regret his criticism of the President, even though it earned him a visit from the Secret Service. Well, mostly he has no regrets. The Official Radio Partner of PunchDrunkGamer, Takedown Wrestling Media’s Scott Casber talked to UFC lightweight Jacob “Christmas” Volkmann about his recent comments regarding President Barack Obama, the reaction across the country, problems with the new Obama-care bill, being on the Jay Leno show and the controversy that surrounded the whole event.
