                    <p>Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight Jacob Volkmann's anger toward President Obama has landed him on financial TV. He tells Fox Business News that he made more money fighting last year than he did adjusting backs as a chiropractor:</p>

 Taking full advantage of the situation....smart.

 

I like how as I watched this video there is an ad on the side that says repeal Obama lol.

brutal...is the only way to describe that

 good for volkmann

 thanks for that, enjoyed that interview

Volkmann needs professional help for his business. Blaming the president on something that hasn't even happened yet is not going to help him make money. I went to his website a few months ago and basically he works part time and strange hours as a chiropractor, plus where he lives isn't a high population area so unless every single person in town went to him, the business probably won't do too well. Also he advertises his fighter status on his chiropractic website, I believe that is a turn-off for people that don't enjoy MMA. He should really weigh out how many people are turned off by that. He needs professional business help. He is showing how to run a business into the ground. Now he's even alienating democrats from visiting him.

Dedicate more time to your business, or hire a secretary to fill out paper work. Complaining isn't going to stop the bureaucracy that the government has been for many years and it definitely won't get you more clients.

I like this guy.

dogfb - I like this guy.



Good ambassador for the sport.

A normal guy who fights because he loves it and struggles to overcome.

Interviewer is a little special Phone Post

So he's blaming Obama for his failure to make money as a quack?

Also, why are we supposed to give a fuck about his political views?

Confused.

"Typical republican."

Ok dickhead. Awesome analysis. I think his points are silly too but don't insult 40-50% of Americans in the process.

He lives in Minneapolis you fucking retard - we have 3.5 million people here.

LOL. This was EMBARRASING.

Volkmann gives NO reasons for disliking "Obamacare" (If you use that term, you're an idiot) and is forced words like "red tape" and "bureaucracy" by the interviewer. Volkmann can only muster that he has to "make phone calls" and do paperwork.

The guy belitted his MMA job. Made fun of how much he got paid. Volkmann acted like he had NO idea about the pay structure. He had a chance to put over the UFC big here and failed.

He gets schooled by the guy when he asks if they fight more than boxing. Volkmann says yes and then when pressed, says he only fought 3 times. The guy's reaction was priceless. "Oh that's it? Only three fights?" Volkmann's response was bad.

Then he whines about his business. Sounds like he's disorganized more than anything. Most chiropractors that I know love the healthcare because people who wouldn't go to a chiropractor will now do so because they are covered.

Sounds like a good guy but not too bright.

You gotta pick your battles, either focus on your business, or focus on fighting, don't blame your lack of success on one because of the other.

Focus homie, focus.
If his business fails, it won't be because of "Obamacare" or the current health system..

 What is so hard to understand.  He's barely breaking even in the real world, and complains about the current paper work and insurance crap he already needs to do.  And he plainly says Obamacare will bring even more of that, which it obviously will.  Taking away from him actually seeing patients.  So it sounds like a legit beef to me. 



Yeah just hire someone when you're barely breaking even, that sounds like a good idea.  And I somehow doubt he's the only doctor of some kind running their own office barely getting by as it is with all the medicare, and insurance, and various other bueaucratic BS they have to deal with on a daily basis. 

 

I commend him for still trying to do it.

I am VERY upset about how much money people are losing because of a bill that doesn't start for another 2 years.

 As a Canadian who lives with health care & is very much in support of it, I was really looking forward to what I thought would be a possibly convincing arguement against... instead I was presented with an incoherent argument in an interview that made fighters look kind of dumb.

 What do you expect, he's a normal guy with a job a life and kids doing an interview on Fox Business.  I still say good for him.  Am more of a fan now.
