Frank Lester is accusing Jon Jones of actively tampering with his career.
Lester and Jones have had serious issues ever since Lester accuses the former champion of paying less than what was promised for Lester’s coaching at UFC 239. Jones’ former coach has now taken to Instagram, claiming the former light heavyweight champion was behind Lester getting kicked out of multiple gyms in the state of Florida:
Tired of the bullshit... Tired of this coward. He called me late this past Saturday evening. I answered, he said, “Frank?” “Yeah what’s up?” “I heard you getting kicked out of gyms in Florida, Just know, that’s me! And then Jon hung up. From there we exchanged some more texts & phone calls. He initiated calling me. I didn’t contact him first nor had I thought about his bitch ass since he ripped me off 13k for the Thiago Santos UFC Title Defense. After the fight he thanked me during the post fight press conference, always complimented what a great job I was during throughout the entire 12 week fight camp. I studied countless hours of @tmarretamma fight footage everyday watching his fights to learn what he does & how he reacts to everything. I used all that information to emulate Thiago during countless hours of drilling and hard sparring. I was promised 20K before we started our 12 week camp. It took Jon about 3 months to pay all the coaches & I received a check for a measly 7k. What kind of scumbag renegotiates by himself after services are rendered. Fuck boy is obviously still butt hurt I chose to leave the team when he refused to pay me the rest of the money I had already earned. So I moved to Florida for a fresh start & was fortunate enough to start training w/ @sugarashadevans &@tyrone_spong. So I’m cool’n bruh @jonnybones Listen Pussy!!!! STOP slandering my name bc I left bum ass JW & ur wack ass crew, Go back to Playing call of duty in the desert with ur friends, shooting beer bottles w/AR’s & tactical gear on looking like a fucking dork. If you really wanna get it, Let’s get it. You want that -- call @davidfeldman1 & @bkfc_matchmaker & we can throw down there bc we all know your -- snitching ass won’t see me in these streets. #fuckboy #tanklifehoe
