There’s no way Jacob Volkmann could have predicted the aftermath of his tongue-in-cheek call out of President Barack Obama after UFC 125, but the Minnesota lightweight knows one thing: he’s gonna roll with it.

Volkmann, whose post-fight interview with MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani has garnered more mainstream attention than perhaps any fight interview in years, told Helwani on “The MMA Hour” Monday that he doesn’t regret his criticism of the president, even though it earned him a visit from the Secret Service. Well, mostly he has no regrets.

“I have an opinion and I have the right to say my opinion – and there’s no regrets of what I said,” Volkmann said. “The only regret I have is calling him an idiot. I don’t think he’s an idiot, but I do think he’s making a lot of mistakes.”

After defeating Antonio McKee in the opening bout at UFC 125 on Jan. 1, Helwani asked Volkmann whom he wants to fight next. After saying Clay Guida, Volkmann then said: “Actually, Obama. He’s not too bright. … His health care plan – someone’s gotta knock some sense into that idiot. … I’m a chiropractor, so I know the health care situation – but he’s making it worse.” READ ENTIRE ARTICLE
