After defeating Tyrone Woodley in the main event of the UFC Fight Night on Saturday, Covington took the opportunity to thank the first responders and the military who have been working tirelessly in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic. Interestingly, he also did so by criticizing other athletes like LeBron – which he suggests is all talk but no walking.
“I want to dedicate this fight to all the first responders, all the military there. This world will not be safe without you, you keep us safe, not these awake athletes. I’m sick of ruthless cowards like LeBron James. ” Said Of the Lakers star.
To his advantage, Quinton also encouraged Donald Trump and predicted a landslide victory for the incumbent US president in the November election.
The MMA fighter said at the beginning of his interview, “Ladies and gentlemen, the silent majority is ready to make some noise,” “If you think this is a beating, wait until November 3 when Donald Trump sleeps on Joe.” Get your hands on This is a landslide. ”
LeBron James has been Trump’s biggest critic, especially the bubble where he has used his platform to summon the country’s top leader. In fact, when Trump said last month that he would no longer watch NBA games due to player opposition, the Lakers Star Replied Saying that the basketball community will not be saddened by the loss of its audience.
James once wore a Maga hat that read, “Make America Arrest the Cops Who Killed Bruna Taylor” – with the words “Great Again”.
In view of their opposing views, it is not surprising to see Colby Quington summoning LeBron.
However, it would be inappropriate to call LeBron a “spineless coward” given the way he has used his platform to bring about change and fight for what he thinks is right. He is without a doubt one of the most influential and benevolent NBA players of today, and his actions certainly speak louder than his words.
