Colby Covington’s NSFW shots at LeBron James while wearing ‘F**k LeBron’ shirt

Lakers, LeBron James, Colby Covington

UFC Welterweight contender Colby Covington is not done dissing Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.

The 32-year-old mixed martial artist once again took aim at The King in an Instagram video on Tuesday.

“Congrats LeBron James, congrats on setting the record for the least-watched NBA finals in the history,” Colby Covington mockingly said regarding the Lakers superstar, while wearing a shirt that had an expletive message to LeBron.

“When everybody’s sick, you hope bulls**t. While NBA [indiscernible] are down, UFC is up, just like our bank account,”he added.

Colby Covington, of course, is a vocal supporter of United States President Donald Trump and the Republican party. Given the NBA’s disdain for Trump’s administration, Covington has been throwing shots at the league — particularly with its poster boy LeBron James.

He previously called James a “spineless coward” and claimed he won’t last 10 seconds inside the cage with him. The Lakers superstar briefly addressed the UFC fighter’s brash comments but has pretty much taken the high road. His NBA brethren, however, has defended James and also called out the mouthy MMA star.

Covington’s latest remarks, meanwhile, took a dig at the 2020 NBA Finals disappointing ratings, which dropped to a historic low this year. UFC ratings did in fact surge over the last few months, considering the promotion was one of the first professional sports organizations to operate during the pandemic.

UFC president Dana White introduced “Fight Island” in Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, which hosted the fights and allowed the action to push through. The NBA bubble, meanwhile, operated under the same structure and was deemed a success, with no players testing positive for COVID-19 throughout its duration.

As for LeBron James, we’ll have to wait and see if he decides to stay silent about Covington’s latest insults or if the Los Angeles Lakers superstar responds with some strong verbiage of his own.
