UFC’s Colby Covington has been blasting LeBron James on social media for the past week but it turns out that he might have actually rooted for LeBron at one point in time.
After UFC Vegas 11 on Saturday, Covington called out “woke athletes” like LeBron during his postfight interview.

I want to dedicate this fight to all the first responders and all the military out there, this world would not be safe without you, and not these woke athletes I’m sick of spineless cowards like Lebron James
Covington went on troll LeBron by bringing up an old rumor about LeBron’s former teammate Delonte West having an affair with his mother Gloria James.
LOL at the snowflakes that believe @KingJames could even last 10 seconds with me! If that coward had the balls or the ability to kick anyone’s ass, Delonte West would’ve lost his teeth long before his meth habit! pic.twitter.com/TQZ56FBnt1

Despite all the recent hate, Covington seemed to have been a fan of LeBron while he was in Cleveland.
The Internet thought it was funny that Covington once rooted for LeBron after everything he’s said about him in recent weeks.
