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.
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.
“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.
