UFC's Colby Covington calls out LeBron James as 'spineless coward' after victory

Colby Covington Donald Trump

Last night's blemish to Covington marked Woodley's third consecutive defeat, following a unanimous decision shutout loss to #1 ranked welterweight contender, Gilbert "Durinho" Burns in May - after he dropped the 170-pound crown to Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 in March of previous year. A fight against someone like Jorge Masvidal makes sense next for Covington's next fight as he looks to get another crack at the welterweight title.

Smothered by the pace-pushing forward locomotion and pressure from Covington, Woodley failed to have his own way in the lengthy clinch exchanges - with the former utilising takedowns to negate any offensive striking, which has to be said - were few and far between.

Then Covington showered praise on first responders before taking a shot at National Basketball Association star LeBron James and "woke athletes".

"I want to dedicate this fight to all the first responders, all the military out there". You keep us safe and not these woke athletes. "I'm sick of these spineless cowards like LeBron James", he continued.

"I'm proud of you man". "You make it so easy, I don't know how the hell you do that".

NASA releases new images of Jupiter captured with Hubble space telescope
A few weeks down the line, the storm was spotted changing its color entirely as it turned the same red hue as the Giant Red Spot. The Hubble Space Telescope from NASA has recently released images of Jupiter, which is 406 million miles from the earth.

And during his post-fight interview on ESPN, he received a call from Trump in what was a first in mixed martial arts. "Congratulations, I wanted to watch that fight tonight, I wanted to watch it, you were great".

Covington, a public supporter of President Trump, took the opportunity to make a political statement against "woke athletes" after beating Woodley in five rounds by way of TKO.

James did not appear to respond to Covington's remarks as of Sunday morning. "I'll tell you", Trump said.

"I'm proud of you, man".
