UFC’s Colby Covington Wants To Knock Out LeBron Like Jake Paul KO’d Nate Robinson (TWEET)
Colby Covington is going to continue to taunt LeBron until he gets a response from him.
The UFC star went super viral earlier this year when he called out LeBron and the Black Lives Matter movement after picking up a technical knockout victory over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley at UFC Fight Night 178.
The former UFC interim welterweight champion took to Twitter on Monday to challenge the Lakers star to a boxing bout on the heels of Legends Only League boxing event on Saturday night.
“Heard they finally scraped @nate_robinson’s carcass off the @staplescenter floor,” Covington wrote on Twitter. “I’d make @kingjames eat the canvas in half the amount of time. Everyone knows current @NBA players are the softest and most privileged athletes on the planet. #TysonJones #Facts”
The event, which was headlined by Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr., featured a bout between YouTube star Jake Paul and former NBA player Nate Robinson in the co-main event of the card. Robinson suffered a brutal knockout loss to Paul.
Covington’s comment about James marks his first since President-elect Joe Biden was voted into power in November.
