It’s no secret that LeBron James is the most influential athlete in the world, so as much that the Los Angeles Lakers offered him a whopping $154 Million deal over four years through his free agency. His popularity got him a massive $1 Billion from Nike. King James is a winner inside and outside the court.
Every marketing agency, sponsors, media houses want to associate themselves with LeBron and it wasn’t surprising when the biggest Mixed Martial arts organization posted an audacious invitation to LeBron James to fight inside the Octagon on their official Twitter account.

Meanwhile, this might have been a humorous post, and LeBron is very unlikely to leave his Multi-Million dollar salary and a Billion dollar endorsement of Nike to settle for a Low Reebok Payout which pays $3500 to fighters with less than five fights in the UFC.
Meanwhile, Fans trolled UFC and advised UFC to promote their own athletes
Hey UFC how about promoting your own fighters.
