One day prior to his debut in the World Series of Fighting, Jacob Volkmann took a fall -- not on the mat, but in his Las Vegas hotel room.

According to the lightweight, he was taking a nap prior to the WSOF 3 weigh-in when a knock at the door caused him to stir. Dehydrated from cutting weight, Volkmann arose and walked across the room to answer the door, only to soon find himself in a much different state.

“The maid knocks on my door and keeps on knocking, and I [thought], ‘I’d better not get up too fast.’ So I got up and walked toward the door, and by the time I got my hand on the door, I blacked out,” Volkman told TJ De Santis during a Wednesday interview on “Beatdown” on the Sherdog Radio Network. “Next thing I remember, I was shaking on the floor, having seizures.”

You guys see his pay?
$7,000 to show, $7,000 to win.... The guys not rolling in money right now. He probably can't afford to pay for the fight camp without the fight. Plus I doubt WSOF has fighter insurance.

When I first read the article I thought it was excuses for his performance but then I've never seen him cover his back for that before. The dudes always said exactly what he thinks and as he can come across as a prick, but in incidents like this I think he's just speaking the truth as he hasn't made excuses in the past and he has no reason to make excuses.

Volkman isn't having any money problems he also owns his own chiropractor firm.

That shit is just dumb, I can't imagine what these guys are doing to cut wt that hard. I wrestled for about a decade (13 years if you count part time coaching) and never got cauliflower ears and never passed out from cutting wt. I have cut 18 lbs in one day before so whatever they are doing is at the stupid level.

What does this do for Volkman besides give his future opponents insight into how bad his weight cut is. When people win excuses are more annoying for some reason.
