UFC welterweight contender Colby Covington is still going at NBA superstar LeBron James.
On Saturday night, Covington called LeBron a “spineless coward” as he blasted “woke athletes” during his postfight interview after beating Tyron Woodley at UFC Vegas 11.
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
After fans trolled him on Twitter, Covington fired back by saying LeBron wouldn’t last 10 seconds with him in the cage. Covington also brought up the old rumor about LeBron’s former teammate Delonte West having an affair with LeBron’s 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

Considering that Covington is a professional MMA fighter while James is a basketball player, a crossover fight surely doesn’t make much sense. Fans, however, still went on to debate who would win a fight between the two.
Fam he’s 6’9 250+ lol your technicality is gonna get your ass whooped lol https://t.co/s7rftUlbVk

Colby Covington has a better chance at beating LeBron James in a basketball game than LeBron has at beating Colby in a fight.
