(Tea Party 247) – As it often seems as though the athletic world is full of “woke,” privileged athletes with million-dollar salaries and little knowledge of the real world, it takes real courage for athletes to profess openly conservative views.
However, if there is one sport where pro-Trump athletes seem to hardly give a crap about what the NBA or NFL thinks about politics, it’s Mixed Martial Arts.
Maybe there is something about the mentality of these guys, who go head-to-head with some of the most talented fighters in the world, that makes them understand what it means to defend one’s country and boldly stand for the truth regardless of the cultural consequences.
We need more men like this, who are willing to give a big, fat middle finger to the lies of the progressive left and the lectures of highly-paid athletes.
One such fighter is Colby Covington, who just secured a TKO win against opponent Tyron Woodley in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
He followed up this beautiful win with a TKO against Joe Biden and woke NBA star Lebron James.
Covington was draped in an American flag during his post-fight interview and used the opportunity to tell America that President Donald Trump was going to beat Biden just like he just beat Woodley.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the silent majority is ready to make some noise,” Covington declared. “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.”

This was not just empty bragging, Covington also displayed a sincere concern for the most important, life-and-death issues.
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.
