Colby Covington called people who don’t think he can beat up LeBron James in a cage fight ‘delusional fools’.
Last week, following Jake Paul’s win over Nate Robinson at last weekend’s ‘Tyson vs. Jones Jr.’ event, Covington shared the following statement on social media:
“Heard they finally scraped Nate Robinson’s carcass off the floor. I’d make LeBron James eat the canvas in half the time. NBA players are the softest and most privileged athletes.”
There is little doubt that a trained MMA fighter like Covington would be able to beat James in a fight. A few people, however, gave James an outside chance should a fight ever take place between the two.

Some people doubted if ‘Chaos’ could manhandle the 6 foot 9 inch, 250-pound athlete in James. Covington shared the following message on Instagram, aimed at those people:
“Same people who doubt this wear masks in the car by themselves and believe lifelong political slime China Joe set the record for all time votes when he couldn’t even get a dozen people to show up in a parking lot. Delusional fools.”

Covington’s latest comments should not come as much of a surprise, given that he’s been a big Trump supporter for a long time. The former interim welterweight title holder also seems to mortally detest LeBron James. Covington has always done his best to try and demean LeBron James, calling him an assortment of names over the past few years.
With that said, it would be foolhardy for anyone to think that a non-professional fighter even with James’s physique would stand a chance against a combat specialist like Covington.
