After taking care of his opponent in the ring Saturday night with a fifth-round TKO, mixed martial arts fighter Colby Covington fired punches at Democratic nominee Joe Biden and liberal primadonna NBA star Lebron James.
In the main event of the UFC Fight Night card, Covington defeated opponent Tyron Woodley in Las Vegas and had the November election on his mind afterward.
Wrapping himself in an American flag during his post-fight interview, the Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight contender referenced “Sleepy Joe” to say that President Donald Trump was going to beat Biden as handily as he had just won his fight.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the silent majority is ready to make some noise,” Covington said. “If you thought that was a beating, wait ’til November 3rd when Donald Trump gets his hands on Sleepy Joe. That’s going to be a landslide.”

He dedicated Saturday’s fight to “all the first responders, all the military out there,” before slamming “woke athletes,” naming James, a raging liberal with an estimated net worth of $450 million, who uses his platform to advocate for the far left’s radical social justice agenda — he called the NBA star a “spineless coward.”
“This world would not be safe without you guys,” Covington said of first responders. “You keep us safe, not these woke athletes, man. I’m sick of these woke athletes, and these spineless cowards like LeBron James.”
The fighter then named two potential opponents, Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal, aka “Street Judas,” telling them, “You’re next!”
Covington received a surprise congratulatory call from President Trump during his post-fight interview, making for a priceless moment.
Not only did Trump praise Covington as “a great fighter,” he thanked him for the “shout out.”
“I tell you, you make it so easy, I don’t know how the hell you do that,” the president said. “Congratulations, I wanted to watch that fight tonight, I wanted to watch it, you were great.”
(Trump held a rally Saturday night in Fayetteville, North Carolina.)
Conservative pundit Candace Owens also gave Covington props for the win and for calling out James.
Congratulations to my friend @ColbyCovMMA for destroying Woodley in the ring, and doing it on behalf of first responders, military, our police, and a Donald Trump presidency.
Great win, and way to call Lebron James out for being a spineless athlete.
TEAM AMERICAAAA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Often seen rocking a MAGA hat, Covington is a big Trump supporter and attended a Trump rally last week — he attributed last week’s visit as a contributing factor to his big win.
Taking to Twitter after the fight, Covington thanked the president for his “love and support,” and repeated the message that the “silent majority is ready to make some noise November 3rd!!”
Nothing makes me prouder than fighting for the people who fight for America!!! THANK YOU to all the brave men and women of law enforcement and the military!!! Thank You @realDonaldTrump for all the love and support!! The silent majority is ready to make some noise November 3rd!! pic.twitter.com/CazbUUnIiJ

As for Lebron James, he was busy Saturday whining about not being named most valuable player — he came in second in voting to Milwaukee Bucks player Giannis Antetokounmpo.
“Pissed me off. That’s my true answer,” he said, according to the liberal sports network ESPN. “It pissed me off, because out of 101 votes, I got 16 first-place votes. That’s what pissed me off more than anything.”
James also took to Twitter to play the victim by seemingly taking a shot at those who did not support him.

After undercutting Antetokounmpo’s accomplishment, James threw him a bone.
“You know, not saying that the winner wasn’t deserving of the MVP, but that pissed me off,” he added, before whining more about how he has “finished second a lot in my career.”
In addition to coming up second four times as an MVP, James has lost six of the nine NBA finals he has appeared in.
