COLBY COVINGTON wore a 'f*** LeBron' vest as he continued his war of words with LeBron James.

The controversial UFC fighter sarcastically congratulated the LA Lakers star after the NBA Finals ratings hit an all-time low.

Covington filmed the short clip while standing between two bikini-clad girls on a beach.

He said: "Congratulations are in order for my good buddy, LeBron James.

"Congrats, LeBron, on setting the record for the least-watched NBA finals in history.

"You wish you could blame it on the pandemic but everybody's just sick of your woke bulls***.

"And while the NBA's ratings are going down, the UFC's are going up. Just like our bank accounts."

Only 7.5million viewers tuned in to watch the LA Lakers' win over Miami Heat.

That is a huge 51 per cent decline from 2019 – and Covington saw this as the perfect opportunity to troll James.

Covington previously labelled the NBA star a 'spineless coward' in a row over the Black Lives Matter movement.

James, 35, protested against the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin and the murder of George Floyd by boycotting the play-offs.

After Covington's win over Tyron Woodley last weekend, he decided to call out the Finals MVP.

The 32-year-old dedicated his win to first responders and said: "You keep us safe, not these woke athletes.

“I’m sick of these woke athletes and these spineless cowards like LeBron James.”

And Covington, who is a huge fan of Donald Trump, said he would beat James in a fight in less than 10 seconds.

He tweeted: "LOL at the snowflakes that believe @KingJames could even last 10 seconds with me!

"If that coward had the balls or the ability to kick anyone’s ass, Delonte West would’ve lost his teeth long before his meth habit!"

Yeah I said it @kingjames! You’re a coward! Law Enforcement Officers are heroes, woke athletes are zeroes! God bless our Military and First Responders! 🇺🇸🦅🇺🇸 #AmericasChamp #PeoplesChamp #UFCVegas11
