Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight Jacob Volkmann was giving a snooze-inducing interview about his recent victory over Antonio McKee when things took a political turn for the worse. When Fanhouse’s Ariel Helwani asked Volkmann whom he’d like to fight next, Volkmann said President Barack Obama.
“He’s not too bright,” Volkmann said. “Someone’s gotta knock some sense into that idiot.”Ouch! What gives? Volkmann — a chiropractor in Minnesota — said he isn’t a fan of the president’s health care reform.
“I know the health care situation was bad, but he’s making it worse,” Volkmann said. “It’s irritating.”
