UFC star Colby Covington calls out LeBron James and vows to make him 'eat the canvas' after Jake Paul KOs Nate Robinson

UFC star Colby Covington has called out basketball legend LeBron James and vowed to 'make him eat canvas'.

The outspoken Donald Trump supporter is determined to continue his long-running feud with James.

Covington tweeted following YouTuber Jake Paul's stunning demolition of former NBA star Nate Robinson at the weekend.

The 32-year-old Californian wrote: "Heard they finally scraped @nate_robinson’s carcass off the @staplescenter floor.

"I’d make @kingjames eat the canvas in half the amount of time. Everyone knows current @NBA players are the softest and most privileged athletes on the planet."

Covington has previously labelled the NBA star a 'spineless coward' in a row over the Black Lives Matter movement.

James, 35, protested against the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin and the murder of George Floyd by boycotting the play-offs.

After Covington's win over Tyron Woodley in October, he decided to call out the Finals MVP.

The 32-year-old dedicated his win to first responders and said: "You keep us safe, not these woke athletes.

“I’m sick of these woke athletes and these spineless cowards like LeBron James.”


He also sarcastically congratulated the LA Lakers star after the NBA Finals ratings hit an all-time low.

Covington filmed the short clip while standing between two bikini-clad girls on a beach.

He said: "Congratulations are in order for my good buddy, LeBron James.

"Congrats, LeBron, on setting the record for the least-watched NBA finals in history.

"You wish you could blame it on the pandemic but everybody's just sick of your woke bulls***.

"And while the NBA's ratings are going down, the UFC's are going up. Just like our bank accounts."
