UFC wrestler loses job over Obama threat

UFC fighter Jacob Volkmann told a reporter he wanted to beat up President Obama as his next opponent. Though Volkmann back pedaled and said he was only joking, the threat prompted an investigation by Secret Service and has now cost Volkmann his job.

Volkmann is an assistant wrestling coach at a Minnesota high school. In an interview with Fox News Radio, Volkmann said, “They didn’t like how I was representing the school… They said I was representing them bad because of what I said about the president and his policies.”
