LeBron James has been called a coward by UFC star Colby Covington and even went on to say the LA Lakers star will not last 10 seconds with him.
The welterweight contender who is a big fan of the United States president, Donald Trump attacked the Black Lives Matter movement after his victory over Tyron Woodley at UFC's pay-per-view event.
The 32-year-old, also known as Chaos, blasted James as well other basketball stars who boycotted the games to protest.
“You keep us safe, not these woke athletes.
“I’m sick of these woke athletes and these spineless cowards like LeBron James.”
He then took a jibe on Twitter on james and his former teammate Delonte West who suffered from drug abuse.
"LOL at the snowflakes that believe @KingJames could even last 10 seconds with me!
"If that coward had the balls or the ability to kick anyone’s a**, Delonte West would’ve lost his teeth long before his meth habit!"
It is not the first time the vocal UFC star is taking a swipe at the NBA star, Covington had previously shaded basketballers who boycotted their games in protest, urging them to instead quit and become cops.
