Wanna know how much Jacob Volkmann makes?

You know how it works: say something about Obama that gets some press and a few days later you’re likely to end up on a Fox news channel talking about it. Funny enough, this interview ended up being less about the dreaded OBAMACARE and more about Jacob Volkmann’s personal finances. I find it pretty amusing that the host shudders at the thought of trying to exist on $75,000 a year. That’s not even enough to stock his humidor through the wine season!

    Can you imagine having only one car… and it’s not even a BMW or Mercedes? Oh the indignity!

  • CAP

    Run with your 5 minutes buddy!

  • glassjawsh

    the dean of my library makes $76,000 a year. and i can only hope to make that much some day in the distant future, with a master’s degree no less. talk about a disconnect with reality! fuck everyone who has ever worked for foxnews and 94% of the people who watch it

    edit: that humidor joke is the funniest thing you’ve said all week, spot on homie

  • Jim

    Well the difference is Volkmann’s will be lucky to bring that in two years in a row.

  • Jim

    WTF is your master’s in?

  • glassjawsh

    don’t have it yet, but next december i will have a master’s in Library/Information Science with a concentration in Archives

  • Omomatta

    ^are you training to be a serial killer?

  • glassjawsh

    ^ inadvertently I guess, I’ve already got the sexual deviancy and the job of a social outcast, maybe if the pussy ever dries up around here there might be some issues

  • frickshun

    Jawsh–>”master’s in Library/Information Science with a concentration in Archives”


  • Omomatta

    Alright Waterson……..”High School chicks. I keep getting older…they stay the same age.”

    Don’t you know the Dewey Decimal system!!?

  • Subbevil

    Sweet. Librarians are mad researchers. I need shit on propaganda telling people to settle the Canadian west.

  • scissors61

    Volkmann’s a twat, and so is Roger Ailes. Rock on with yo’ bad self, jawsh. You seem like a cool archivist, which is rarer than a fuckin’ unicorn in my experience.

  • lukustra

    he also doesnt include the bonus money he gets from Dana, checks from sponsors (usually a large part of the fighters salary, $10g’s easy.) and other money he gets from the UFC. Although the host was generous with his guesstimate. Jacobs reported income was actually lower then 60gs.

  • dulljake

    Volksman is a whiny bitch. As for his pay, in all the years me and Ryan have been doing this mad bloggin’ shit, we’ve never made that much COLLECTIVELY. So fuck him.

  • Symbul

    Yeah but you’ve never been mugged and dryhumped by Antonio McKee either.

  • GoldenArms

    the masters in archiving will come in handy when you’re rearranging the heads on your trophy case

  • glassjawsh

    @ omo – most higher learning institutions don’t use dewey anymore. but yes i was forced to learn it because so many country bumpkin ass libraries and archives in the midwest still rely on it. but that’s usually something that circulation deals with.

    @ scissors – you should see my program director for the archive program. she has crazy long hippie blonde hair almost down to the floor (which im fairly certain she has never once brushed), doesn’t wear a lick of makeup, wears leggings and a flower dress to work basically every day and absolutely BLASTS techno music in her office after hours.

    she is in her early 30’s and i CANNOT WAIT to fuck her

  • scissors61

    Ha ha, play on playa! Take her to a microbrewery, broads like that are suckers for craft beers. Academic pussy-gettin’ 101 right thurr. I almost went for the MLS before I decided to do Central European history. I would’ve gone for reference, though, not archives. I worked in archives as an undergrad and almost went crazy from the constant silence.

  • Boog

    Glass– 76k a year being a fantasy salary with a Master’s degree? You’re in the wrong field, son!

    *says the history BA who pulled in 78k in salary, and just shy of 100k with overtime last year*

    /dick waving

  • glassjawsh

    ^ siiiiiiigh, my BA is in history……………….

    edit: to be fair 76k in indiana is roughly equivalent to 1.2 million on the west coast

    A humidor is for cigars, pipe tobacco and specialty tobacco/cigarettes. Humidors are not used for wine or any wine products I am aware of.

    Humidors control humidity. Wine does not care about humidity because the liquid is stored in GLASS bottles. Glass bottles in our dimension do not traverse humidity. Some wines may need humidity control if young cork is used because mold flavours and other tannin contaminants may seep in through that young cork (young cork is cork that is peeled off of Cork Oak trees younger than 10 years). If you have a bottle of which young cork is used, you got screwed because your cork will shrink with age causing air contamination which will rancid the wine. Young cork can also pass scents and flavours to the wine.

    Wine storage systems are called wine cellars. Also wine is not a sport, there is no such thing as a wine season. Grapes of different cepages and locations are cultivated in alternation all over the world.

    Next time we get together, please abstain from choosing the wine, I will take care of it because im a wino snobby bitch.

    Never pet a burning dog.

  • Redping

    Jake, of course this website has made less than jacob volkmann makes yearly, he’s a god damned FIGHTER and a CHIROPRACTOR. this is a site where people shit on fighters, how much money could possibly be in it.

    also I fail to see how anyone can call a fighter a ‘whiney bitch’ unless they’re actually whining, like say War Machine’s intros on his TUF season or something. doesn’t needlessly hating on things and people count as whining, or is that known as ‘blogging’ now

  • agentsmith

    Letibleu, I was going to point that out but I figured maybe he meant that rich mofos also smoke a lot of cigars during wine season. I’m not sure what “wine season” is supposed to mean unless one also owns an actual winery, but whatever.

  • Reverend Clint

    i hope volkmann dies

  • Letibleu

    Volkmann will become Palins aid,

  • Reverend Clint

    The guy is an idiot… i live on 15k at most and i live ok. does he have kids… if so fuck him and his shitty kids.

  • Predator8u

    Fighters dont get payed enough for the amount of life and energy they put in to the sport. Dont forget to take into account how BRokeN their bodies will be by 54. VOLK-MANN! seems like a decent Dude. Fuck those limey-twats.

    Fuck ive been training(MMA) for only 3 years and ive already torn my FUCKIN shoulder TWICE!!(never got it Fixed)(no moneyz).

    but that is why I LOVE this sport. because it’s not about the money so much, but about pushing yourself everyday (RAW Fuckin human will,drive & ability) So I can every once in a while try to kick someone’s ass. monkey Vs. monkey.
    I used to weigh 315lbs(FUCK high school) now i cut to 145.

    VolK-Mann! never mentioned Sponsorship $$$

    To Ryan and Jake I’ve been listening to your podcast since UFC88 (when one of you 2 did a Play-by-play for that event and it was the realist, honest and funnest shit) Keep up the awesome work.

    To Jake what the hell are you doing in the DR of all places? (pussy really?)

    also i hate the term OBAMACARE. like he’s solely responsible for it (because thats the image that it exploits. Really the cause is for-profit insurance companies and ALL of the U.S.of.A’s corrupt Government. Watch fuckin FRONTLINE you fucktards.
    (not u guys but everyone else in this narcissist country.) sRY NEEDED TO rANT.

  • Jim

    Apparently he’s been suspended with pay, on account of the Obama comments.

    How fucking dumb is that school administrator.

  • iamphoenix


  • frickshun

    Predator–>YOU FORMER FAT FUCK!! You should post more…..

    Clint–>what’s w/the bitch comments?? Did Volkman steal ur chick or s’thing??

  • fish tacos


    You write and link and fart all day. A noble profession, don’t get me wrong. Heck, I’m glad this place exists.

    But this dude fought 3 times, went through 3 camps, coached HS wrestling, and ran a business (he says he does the office work, marketing, and the back cracking). For that he made 75K. First off, I’m guessing he put in a few more hours than you. I’m guessing the HS coach gig is about the same amount of hours. Dude is a boring fighter, has a stupid nickname, but he is a hard worker. Work hard = make money.

    Next, 75K is a nice paycheck, but 3 kids and the 150-200k it cost to get the chiropractic degree is going to eat a huge chunk of that. Since he runs his own biz, I’m guessing the insurance is more than the 15K that Clint lives comfortably on.

  • fish tacos

    Long story short, he’s not living in a box, but he aint rich.

  • G Funk

    Predator <—— Before & after pics or GTFO!

  • Predator8u

    sure. but how do u post pics? i got some painful ones:)

  • Reverend Clint

    nah he is just a whiney homo who needs to keep it in his pants and get a real job

  • Slappy san

    @glassjawsh I totally didn’t see “she is in her early 30’s and i CANNOT WAIT to fuck her” coming. I don’t suppose you have pics of this chick?

  • Slappy san

    I really wish the site sent out instant notifications via email. Is that omission a cost issue?

  • fightlinker

    Instant notifications for what? Posts? Forum updates?

    letibleu: agentsmith had it, the idea was more cigar smoking during wine season.

    glassjawsh: pm me pics or her facebook account so i can see!

  • Slappy san

    It’d be cool to get notifications if a reply is given after I have.
