Even if the UFC is more of a known entity today than it was five years ago, many of their lower and mid-level fighters still keep additional jobs to help pay the bills. Jacob Volkmann is one of those fighters, keeping up with a chiropractic business and a wrestling coach position at White Bear Lake High School in Minnesota.

He'll have a bit more free time on his hands as he revealed on Twitter that he's again been placed on administrative leave from the school following a joke he made about U.S. President Barack Obama at UFC 141.

You think he would have learned the first time not to mess with Obama... And I pray he never attempts to make another joke after a fight because it was just terrible

Obama could use a good butt-kicking.

I don't mind Volkmann as a fighter but I really don't like his personality. That joke was horribly awkward. And his delivery was very bad. Having to ask Rogan to ask him what a glassectomy was is just a stupid way to start a joke, I'm sorry...

He still has fighting to focus on.

Great fighter.
Horrible joke

Good, he needs to shut his mouth. Nobody cares about a preliminary card fighter's political stance.

He makes $1800 per year as a coach? Do they mean 18,000? LOL.
Cause 1800... I can understand why he could careless about being put on administrative leave.

The next time he tries to a tell joke, Rogan should just pull the microphone away and say "Let's hear it for Jacob Volkman, ladies and gentleman."

They'll boo, and we can be spared the lame humor. And he might keep his job.

If I recall correctly his manager told him to continue with his political genius due to the "any publicity is good publicity" nonsense. And who okayed this joke for him? Is he really surrounded by such idiots that when he tested the joke out on his peers they all said "yeah man that's fucking hysterical bro"? Even Carlos Mencia has better jokes than this guy

Volkmann's joke after his fight with Escudero was more than just unfunny, it was creepy...
