Welterweight contender Colby Covington might not be related to basketball or NBA at all, but he did mention LeBron James in an interview after he beat Tyron Woodley in last night's fight. Covington was ecstatic after his fight and started talking about politics by taking shots at Joe Bidden. Needless to say, Covington is a Donald Trump supporter and is an advocate of him potentially getting re-elected in the office once again in November.

Covington was pretty vocal after his fight, taking shots at the Democratic presidential candidate and the NBA's most prominent superstar. He believes Trump will win the elections by a landslide and that nobody can do nothing about it, not even the NBA stars who are very vocal in expressing their discontent with Trump.

"Ladies and gentlemen, the silent majority is ready to make some noise. If you thought that was a beating, wait until November 3rd when Donald Trump gets his hands on Sleepy Joe. That's going to be a landslide."

In his speech, Covington called LeBron James a 'spineless coward' while at the same time sharing his respect for the military and the police.

"This world would not be safe without you guys. You keep us safe, not these woke athletes, man. I'm sick of these woke athletes and these spineless cowards like LeBron James.

In the last couple of weeks, LeBron James and other NBA superstars decided to take a stance on all the US's social and racial injustice. The majority of NBA players followed the same path, but their actions weren't supported by the entire NBA community, especially the fans who don't want to see politics get involved in sports. Whether LeBron will respond to Covington's comments remains to be seen, but knowing LeBron is probably too focused on the Nuggets' WCF series. Usually, he doesn't get involved in these types of confrontations; however, he might surprise everyone.
