Have you heard what UFC fighter Jacob Volkmann is saying about his next competitor? Did he really say he wanted to fight President Barack Obama, what did he respond? What did Michelle say? When will they face each other? What were the famous MMA fighter’s challenge words? Check the rest of this story here plus check out some cool photos and videos below.
First of all let’s know a little about the fighter who is so eager to fight Obama at the Capitol, well I am getting a little ahead of time, but it would be a great scenario, right?
So Jacob Volkmann aka Christmas, is the 30 year old MMA fighter (since 2007, record of 14 fights 12 wins) who also is a graduate from the University of Minnesota and NCAA All American (three times), he is a happily married man with two beautiful daughters. If you thought that there was a chiropractor whose name is the same as the fighter we want to tell you that both are the same person since he got his license from Northwestern Health Sciences University, you can find Dr. Jacob at his clinic, Volkmann Chiropractic in White Bear Minnesota Suite 300, here is what he has to say to you.
I treat every age at every life stage. No one should have to live their life in pain, I specialize in treating low-back pain and sports related injuries. As a life-long athlete I sympathize with the needs of athletes and the unique types of treatment they require.
So there you go if he gets to fight President Obama, he can also heal him, not a bad deal, but let’s hear about this challenge.
What motivated him for this upcoming fight? Could it have been his recent victory over Antonio McKee at UFC 125?
“Actually, Obama. He’s not too bright,” Volkmann said. “Someone’s gotta knock some sense into that idiot. I’m a chiropractor, so I know the health care situation is not good. But he’s making it worse.”
I don’t know about you but that comment will get him in trouble, and you know what he did, secret service came to give him a visit and asked him about threatening the president.
“This guy had the whole interview on a piece of paper and it had my picture and everything,” said Volkmann. “He was like ‘is this what you said?’ and I said, ‘yes it is.’ He’s like ‘I want to let you know I’m a little embarrassed for coming here and doing this because obviously nothing happened.’ He actually apologized for coming, but he had to come. He wanted to make sure I wasn’t going to D.C to hurt the President.
“The thing is, I got home and I checked my e-mail and I had about 20 e-mails and one of them, one of ladies had actually contacted the FBI and the Secret Service, and she was telling me that she was going to do it…. People were misunderstanding the point of view I was going for with the health care plan. That’s why they were getting so upset. I’m thinking about the provider, I’m a chiropractor, so I’m thinking about my point of view, not everyone getting insurance. They don’t have to worry about getting denied, which is good I guess, just not good for health care providers.”
Well we won’t be seeing President Obama fighting at UFC anytime soon and hopefully the secret service won’t pay any more visits to Dr. Volkmann, or do you think this will go on? What do you think about the challenge, do you think he went too far? If you were an MMA fighter who would you want to fight? Check these photos (None of the fighters are Jacob even the less Pres. Obama, but they are really cool shots, right? Oh, and check out the video.
