“It was grappling time and he asked me to wrestle him,” said [Jacob] Volkmann, in a recent interview with Sherdog.com. “I went over and we got our own little mat area like the size of a circle on a regular mat. We started wrestling. I was doing collar ties, and then all of a sudden, he karate chopped me in the side of the neck. I was light, ‘Alright.’ I didn’t really take any shots because I felt that he was kind of a spaz. Then all of a sudden, he pushes me away and punches me in the face.”
I was annoyed as anyone else at Volkmann’s relentless and annoying post-fight videos where he tried to do political comedy, but c’mon. You don’t sucker-punch (or sucker-karate-chop then sucker-punch) a guy during grappling. Especially after you ask him to grapple with you.
What’s this guy’s deal, anyway?
