Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has a chain. Chuck Liddell has a mohawk. Chael Sonnen has his mouth.

They are the marks of a fighter's personality and the things that identify them to the rest of the world. They are as much a part of a fighter's brand as the style brought to the cage. Just about every high-profile competitor has a defining feature.

Jacob Volkmann would like to make Obamacare his.

"Even though people don't want me to do it, I don't care," he told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

reading all the comments under the article is kind of depressing.

Right, this man is getting MMA on the radar but i'm not sure if its for the right reasons or not, he brings it when in the cage, follows the rules. But calls out the president, its not like he's a punk fighter, covered in tattoo's, mohawk.

He is just another fighter using the president to make him famous, it's smart, provided he doesnt get into any serious trouble over this. And he keeps his reasons political. The LW division is so stacked everybody needs a story or something which seperates them... I see his reasoning for doing it, I just hope some media story's don't see him as a red hot cage fighter bad boy who smashes people's face's in and see him as a grappler without one KO in MMA trying to get his name out there and trying to gain recognition so it takes away from that he hasn't finished a fight since the 15th of May, 2009

There are a lot more influental people who have the media to make themselves heard to many more of the masses than Volkmann that have similar views and they don't get calls from the President.....talk radio show hosts and tv show hosts are prime examples.....I really don't think he will EVER get the call. Just place your vote and voice your opinion to people who care enough to listen.

I like Christmas and he's entitled to say what he wants - freedom of speech. I just want to see Volkmann back in there.
