UFC’s Volkmann Wants Obama Next

UFC 125: Resolution wasn’t exactly the best start to the year that MMA fans could have asked for, but it certainly had its moments. I thought Clay Guida’s victory over Takanori Gomi was entertaining, the Brandon Vera-Thiago Silva fight was solid and the main event featuring Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard was great, despite the draw decision. Seriously, draw decisions are communist. Ultimately, the whole event was overshadowed by the news that Chuck Liddell had retired from fighting, but Jacob Volkmann has made a little name for himself in the aftermath as well.

Volkmann, who defeated 40-year old Antonio McKee in a “Who’s Who of Who?” preliminary bout, told Fanhouse’s Ariel Helwani that he’d like to take on Guida next. Or maybe, you know, President Barack Obama. It makes sense, because rumor has it that Obama has shed a few pounds to fight at the lightweight level after spending the past few years legislating as a welterweight.

Get all political on our asses, Volkmann…

Ariel Helwani: “Wow. You’re calling out Barack Obama right now. That’s pretty big; that’s ballsy.”

Jacob Volkmann: “He’s not too bright … someone’s got to knock some sense into that idiot. I just don’t like what Barack is doing.”
