UFC lightweight Jacob Volkmann, following his win over Antonio McKee, declared that he wanted to fight U.S. President Barack Obama for his next fight. His words got him a visit from the Secret Service on Wednesday.

Volkmann, who is based out of Minnesota, told MMAFighting.com after his win over McKee that he wanted to face Obama because he disagreed with many of his policies.

Not to get into a political debate here but....has the government really gotten that out of hand? Really? Does that sound at all like the guy is going to attempt anything on the President? NO! I'm sure there are hundreds of people who have challenged a President to a fight one way or another. Who cares!!

Strange week for MMA news. First federal fraud charges, now visits from the Secret Service.

Not a smart move to publish threats of physical violence against a U.S. President. . . they tend to take that threat pretty seriously considering the amount of assassinations and attempted assassinations in our history. Approx. 1 out of 11 presidents has been assassinated over history. And several more have been shot and lived. Volkmann was just joking and making a political statement, and he had every right to say it. But the Secret Service investigates everything, whether it was an obvious joke or a serious plot.

This is very much standard procedure. If you send a letter to the white house saying that you would like to punch Obama in the face, they'll probably pay a visit to your house.

You should be proud to be an American knowing how well the highest office in your country is being protected. Whether the comment was meant in jest or not it's standard procedure.
