Colby Covington is not happy with NBA and MLB players boycotting their games.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Milwaukee Bucks made a statement by not leaving their locker room and boycotting their Game 5 against the Orlando Magic. The NBA then postponed all of Wednesday’s games and then three MLB games were boycotted as well to protest the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

It is a major stand against the systematic racism that has been going on for years. Yet, for former UFC interim welterweight champion, Colby Covington, who is a Donald Trump supporter ripped the NBA and MLB players.

Oh wow, you postponed your games?!” Covington wrote. “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,” Covington wrote.

But we’re here. It is what it is. We can’t do anything from right here. But I think definitely when it all settles, some things need to be done.”

Hill also believes the police department has to change and society has to change.
