I don’t know how many of you watched Ariel Helwani’s interview with Jacob Volkmann following UFC 125, but he stunningly called out President Barack Obama towards the end of the interview. And guess who that earned him a visit from? The US Secret Service.
The Secret Service showed up at both his residence and during his youth wrestling camp to interview him about the potential threat made to the President.
MMAWeekly.com confirmed with training partner Nick Thompson, who spoke directly to Volkmann, that the Secret Service agents showed up and interviewed him regarding his remarks about President Obama following UFC 125.
The interview was a formal process due to any potential threat made against the President, and Wednesday’s investigation should be the close of Volkmann’s involvement with the situation.
I guess that means the government really is watching. Crazy.
