UFC STAR SLAMS LEBRON JAMES, CALLS HIM SPINELESS COWARD
On Saturday night, top UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington took aim at NBA superstar LeBron James after the fighter’s victory in the main event of UFC Fight Night 178. “Chaos” defeated former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley by fifth-round TKO and during the post-fight interview with commentator Jon Anik, Covington called James a “spineless coward.”
Covington is a known Republican who has met President Donald Trump on several occasions, including when he won the interim welterweight belt at UFC 225 and brought it to the Oval Office. Speaking with Anik, Chaos took the time to make a political statement in support of Donald Trump and dedicated his victory to the United States military and first responders.
Covington turned his attention to Lebron James and his UFC rivals, current welterweight champ Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal. He said, “Not these athletes, man. I’m sick of these woke athletes and these spineless cowards like Lebron James. And speaking of spineless cowards, Marty Fake Newsman, Street Judas, we got unfinished business. There’s nowhere to run and there’s nowhere to hide. I’m coming for you, you’re next!”
