Dwight Howard says he'd beat LeBron James in an MMA fight

LeBron James and Dwight Howard are two of the most physically imposing players in the league right now, although both of them use their stature with differing effectiveness.

The self-professed 'King' is a three-time finals MVP, three-time title winner, four-time MVP and 12-time All-Star, while the other is a guy whose career promised so much but has, so far, delivered little but eight All-Star games, five All-NBA first team selections and one trip to the finals.

There is no doubting who the superior basketball player is, but put them in an octagon and there may be a very different outcome. Well, according to Howard anyway.

TMZ Sports spoke to the big man in Las Vegas on the night of Conor McGregor's legendary UFC 202 bout with Nate Diaz and the Atlanta Hawks man backed himself to beat LeBron in an MMA fight.


Howard's image in the NBA has taken a beating over the past couple of season and he remains a polarising figure in the league. He was booed by fans in Vegas as his face showed up on the big screen.

Hopefully, a spell back in his home state can help him get over with the fans.
