When Chael Sonnen isn’t slated to fight a Brazilian in the UFC, I’m thankful we still have Jacob Volkmann to call out Barack Obama and teach us all what a Glassectomy is. Despite at least one visit from the secret service for his ongoing tirade about America’s president, Volkmann continues to stir up controversy, but now he’s doing it against Hector Lombard. In fact, he was so unimpressed by the Cuban Judoka’s performance at UFC 149, he had this to say regarding the beef stemming from their time in Florida with American Top Team.
“It was grappling time and he asked me to wrestle him,” said Volkmann, in a recent interview with Sherdog.com. “I went over and we got our own little mat area like the size of a circle on a regular mat. We started wrestling. I was doing collar ties, and then all of a sudden, he karate chopped me in the side of the neck. I was like, ‘Alright.’ I didn’t really take any shots because I felt that he was kind of a spaz. Then all of a sudden, he pushes me away and punches me in the face.”
Volkmann said one of Lombard’s coaches had to step in, as the former Bellator middleweight champion wanted to fight right there and then.
“Judging from his last UFC fight, I think I could take him.”
Thankfully the secret service doesn’t protect Hector Lombard the same way they do Barack Obama. Within the world of MMA, you could call people out as frequently and make your words as hurtful as possible because there’s no repercussion. Props to Jacob Volkmann for understanding that and enjoying dormant chapters of the English language.
