Covington, the best UFC fighter ranked in the welterweight category, has an extended beef with Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. He has criticized James in the past for his stances on social issues and politics and during a recent interview.
The final portion of business for Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal before stepping into the octagon for the UFC 272 main event is in the books, but he did not let it end without taking a shot at LeBron. Covington closed out the build to Saturday’s anticipated grudge match between former friends and teammates by calling the Lakers superstar a ‘woke spineless coward.’
Just like the many other countles times when Covington took a shot at LeBron, don’t expect the Lakers star to ever respond back.
UFC 272 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
