Colby Covington settled the score, won bragging rights over his biggest rival and perhaps earned another title shot.
The UFC welterweight star defeated Tyron Woodley via TKO at 1 minute, 19 seconds of the fifth round Saturday night in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas.
After defeating Tyron Woodley in the UFC Fight Night main event on Saturday, Covington took the opportunity to thank first-responders and the military who are working tirelessly amid the coronavirus pandemic. Interestingly, he did so while also criticizing other athletes like LeBron — whom he suggests is all talk but no walk.
“I want to dedicate this fight to all the first responders, all the military out there. This world would not be safe without you guys, you keep us safe, and not these woke athletes. I’m sick of these spineless cowards like LeBron James,” Covington said of the Lakers star.
For what it’s worth, Covington also promoted Donald Trump and stated his prediction of a landslide victory for the incumbent U.S. president in the upcoming November elections.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the silent majority is ready to make some noise,” the MMA fighter exclaimed at the beginning of his interview. “If you thought that was a beating, wait until Nov. 3 when Donald Trump gets his hands on sleepy Joe. That’s going to be a landslide.”

LeBron James has been one of the biggest critics of Trump.
