Mixed martial arts fighter Colby Covington fired back at LeBron James fans, saying they’re crazy if they think the NBA star could last even 10 seconds in the ring with him.

Covington was reacting after LeBron fans dragged him on Twitter after Colby slammed LeBron as a “spineless coward” for supporting the anti-police Black Lives Matter movement. Covington — a vocal Trump supporter — also predicted that President Trump would crush Joe Biden in a “landslide” on November 3.

Covington tweeted: “LOL at the snowflakes that believe LeBron James could even last 10 seconds with me! If that coward had the balls or the ability to kick anyone’s *ss, Delonte West would’ve lost his teeth long before his meth habit!”

Covington’s fiery Twitter smackdown of LeBron — a noted anti-Trumper — ignited a flurry of approving responses from his fans.

One exhorted: “Tell ’em.”

Another fan remarked: “LeBron would swing, miss, and Colby would shoot and take him down.. all ground and pound. Queen James has NO CHANCE.”

That caused a Twitter user to reply: “Exactly. This seems obvious to me. LeBron doesn’t have a minute of ground game training. He’d be choked out in seconds.”

One guy commented: “LeBron would need to train MMA for a minimum of 5 to 10 years if he’s super talented and has natural aptitude. Probably closer to 10 years of elite professional training on average to have any chance of defeating Colby Covington in the Octagon. Even then I would still favor Colby.”

“If anyone thinks that Lebron would win any type of fight against Colby Covington they have obviously been bumped on the head 1 too many times.”

One Twitter user said: “LeBron too scared to leave his house to fight you Colby.”

“Set this fight up.”

Meanwhile, LeBron fans accused Covington of “clout-chasing” and claimed that James would pummel him.

“Irrelevant mf on his knees begging for LeBron to acknowledge him.”

“Got my money on 6 foot 9, 250 lbs.”

“If LeBron trained for the same time Colby has been, he would destroy him.”

LeBron recently came under fire for apparently siding with communist China over the pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

Republican Senator Rick Scott slammed James on Twitter, saying: “It’s sad to see him join the chorus kowtowing to Communist China and putting profits over human rights for Hong Kong. They’re fighting for freedom and the autonomy they were promised.”

In December 2018, LeBron made headlines for siding with kneeling NFL players who protested the American national anthem.

At the time, LeBron trashed all NFL team owners, saying they’re a bunch of “old white men” with a “slave [owner] mentality.”

James said: “In the NFL, they just got a bunch of old, white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality.”
