(FOX NEWS) – UFC fighter Colby Covington isn’t backing down from his public spat with LeBron James.

Covington took to Twitter on Monday to say that the Los Angeles Lakers star couldn’t “last 10 seconds with me” after several NBA players took aim at him on social media for calling James a “spineless coward” after his fight with Tyron Woodley.

“LOL at the snowflakes that believe @KingJames could even last 10 seconds with me!” his tweet read. “If that coward had the b—s or the ability to kick anyone’s a–, Delonte West would’ve lost his teeth long before his meth habit!”

Covington was referencing a rumor from 2010 that alleged that West, James’ former teammate, had an affair with James’ mother.

The trash-talking began on Saturday after Covington beat Woodley in five rounds by way of TKO.
