Former UFC fighter and Jackson-Wink coach Frank Lester has accused the training gym and Jon Jones of “screwing him over” to the tune of $13,000. Lester posted to Instagram on Monday accusing Jones and Jackson-Wink of “[doing him] dirtier that I have ever even seen in this fight game” in relation to Jones’ last title fight.

Jones faced Thiago Santos in his last fight, against Thiago Santos at UFC 239 in July. Lester said he was opening a new MMA academy in the next six months and told Jones, “You stole from my family. You got me fired from my job for no reason and for that I am grateful [because] I will never work for a crook like Mike Winkelloser again.”

Jones commented on the post per MMA Weekly, before later deleting the comments. They read:

“Frank, I gave you the opportunity of a lifetime. Everyone on the team knows that I would not agree to give you $20,000 for only your second training camp on my team. And if I did, I would have totallyp aid that amount, not once in 10 years have I ever gotten a complaint about not paying staff members. If anything, I’m always complemented (sic) for being people’s highest paying client by a long shot. I won’t even get into the fact that you were fired from the team on fight week because of your drug issues.

“Anyways, I’m not going to argue with you over the internet. I would be more than happy to take this to a judge. It’s the physical threatening that I have a problem with. I have no interest in carrying a concealed pistol or preparing for any type of street fight with you. Tomorrow, I will be calling APD and bringing our confrontation to their awareness.

“Honestly, I wish I would have never gotten to know you, but I truly do wish you nothing but the best. Please just leave me alone, bro, or see me in court.”
