UFC Champ Jacob Volkmann Takes Swipe at Obama: “He Needs a Glassectomy” (Video)

UFC Champion Jacob Volkmann took another swipe at Obama after his win over Efrain Escudero:
“He needs a glassectomy.”

Volkmann said in the video that he got death threats and a visit from the Secret Service the last time he cracked a joke about Obama.

Cagefighter reported:

The last time Jacob Volkmann tried to make a political statement about the President it resulted in some uncomfortable times for the UFC fighter.

Apparently, Volkmann is a glutton for punishment or simply wants to exercise his right to speak freely because he fanned the flames again tonight at UFC 141.

After his victory over Efrain Escudero, Volkmann asked UFC analyst Joe Rogan if he could say two things.

The first was an attempt to call out the UFC lightweight champion.

“Frankie [Edgar], work on your takedown defense. I’m comin’ and I’m taking you down,” said Volkmann.

Next he turned his attention to President Barack Obama.

“Obama needs a glassectomy. Ask me what a glassectomy is, Joe,” said Volkmann.

Rogan obliged.

“It’s where they remove the belly button and put a piece of glass in there so you can see what you’re doing while your head’s up your [expletive],” said Volkmann.

Rogan gave the fighter a strange look and the quip went over like a lead balloon with the crowd in attendance at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

    While we’re at it, “The (I Won) One We Have Been Waiting For” needs a media anal exam just like every other candidate gets. Let’s see how The Messiah holds up under the kind of scrutiny Sarah Palin and every other Republican gets. Ouch!

    Girlyman SØBama wil send mooschelle to handle Volkmann.


    classic line and so very true…..get ready odumbo it is now 2012 you only have 10 more months left to finish your plan on the destruction of america….then you will be free to go back to your birth place in kenya and run that crap country

    When the left made such comments about George W. Bush at concerts, talk shows, interviews, etc., it was very unwelcomed. Although I agree with Mr. Volkmann’s sentiments, there’s a time and a place to be critical of our president. Such comments made at opportune times do not sway anyone’s opinions.

    glassoectmy is not a bad description, head down can,t see where he is going……….

    I think he should stick to cage fighting.

    That’s stupid. A glassectomy (if there were even such a word) would be removing a piece of glass, not the navel.

    This man must be prosecuted under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Our President is the unfortunate victim of Cranial Rectal Convergence Syndrome – CRCS. It is typified by stuttering speech when caught without a prepared monologue and bouts of disasters that run in clusters. The acronym for his symptoms is SCOAMF.

    #3 USMC Thomas,
    hey buddy it’s too bad we didn’t have her back in the day. If we’d threatened to send her to Hanoi the dinks would have caved on the spot and ran for the mountains. Who could blame them?

    Correction needed to this story. Jacob “Christmas” Volkmann is NOT a UFC Champ. He’s merely a fighter in the 155lb weight division (Lightweight) and could in the not so distant future compete for the championship. All UFC fighters are not all champions. There’s at present 7 per weight division with an eighth to be added in early 2012.

    See the UFC’s list of fighters to know who is and is NOT a Title Holder or Champion: http://www.ufc.com/fighter

    Presently the title strap is held by Frankie “The Answer” Edgar.

    Jim, this is the second time you posted a story on Volkmann and got it wrong. He isn’t a champion, he is a contender. Volkmann is a good fighter, but he’s about 3-4 more big wins before he can see a title shot in the lightweight division and the UFC isn’t fighting him as much as they could. I love what he is doing and saying even in his own way of doing it. He has made me a fan. I just hope to see him on the main fight cards and not the prelims which aren’t always aired.

    The Dr. Volkmann “Christmas” WARWAGON!

  • bronxdude

    Some people commenting on the word “glassectomy” here need a Maglite to find their way out…

    Funny joke and I agree withthis dude regarding big Ø

  • aprilnovember811

    He’s my hero! Get King George!

  • aprilnovember811

    He’s a champion in our eyes!

  • truth teller

    I don’t really care about who this guy is…I just like the fact that he is not afraid of the fraud in the WH.

    Let’s all use the 10 months before the election to make our voices heard and wake any liberal family and friends from their deluded slumber in time for them to vote for America’s future.

    Also, our first goal must be to get Obama out of the WH…if that means voting for someone less-than-perfect in the Republican field, so be it. We need to first win the battle and then work on winning the war.

    I think it would be a glazioplasty, but the joke works. 🙂

  • You never even bothered correcting yourself a year ago when you incorrectly called this guy a champ:


    That’s pathetic. A professional fighter wants to fight a pencil-neck politician? Want’s to break his arm? What’s he trying to prove, what a stupid jerk he is?

    But you know what’s more pathetic? Cheap points scoring regardless of the truth. Isn’t that supposed to be the province of the LEFTISTS? You’re a disgrace to the right wing blogosphere, you’ve truly jumped the shark.

  • btw, how stupid would gateway pundit readers have to be that they couldn’t tell the difference between some low level journeyman MMA fighter who fights in the prelims and a “champ”? How stupid would they have to be influenced by such tripe being spouted by a “champ”?

    I thought a glassectomy might refer to surgically removing ones teleprompter in order to prove that one can make a coherent statement without it.

    Please do us all a favor and don’t attach the title of ufc champion to this idiots name
