UFC star Colby Covington is not a fan of the recent boycott from NBA players, who refused to play several playoff games to protest the recent police shooting of Jacob Blake.
On Thursday Covington challenged LeBron James and other players who live “soft privileged lives” to quit their multi-million dollar jobs and become cops instead.
Oh wow, you postponed your games?! Wanna prove you’re really about change? Quit your multi million dollar jobs and soft privileged lives playing a kids game, take a massive pay cut and perform the toughest job in America. Become cops!!!! @NBA @MLB @KingJames

This isn’t the first time Covington has criticized LeBron. Last year the MMA fighter called out the NBA superstar for over the NBA’s situation with China.

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman who beat Covington in a fight earlier this year, fired back at his rival on Twitter for calling out LeBron.
I really wish someone would just break your jaw already…
