Former Interim UFC Welterweight Champion Colby Covington once again criticized woke athletes, namely LeBron James, for their political stance.
Covington made the following comment after defeating Tyron Woodley by technical knock-out in the UFC Fight Night main event on Saturday.
“Ladies and gentleman, the silent majority is ready to make some noise. If you thought that was a beating, wait till November 3 when Donald Trump gets his hands on sleepy Joe. That’s gonna be a landslide,” Covington said.
“I want to dedicate this fight to all the first responders, all the military out there. This world would not be safe without you guys, you keep us safe, and not these woke athletes. I’m sick of these spineless cowards like LeBron James,” he continued.
The Los Angeles Lakers superstar has taken a clear political stance ahead of the coming US presidential elections. He has spoken publicly against President Trump on a number of occasions. LeBron has also endorsed Trump’s main opponent Joe Biden.
