Jon Jones Goes to War With Former Coach Over $13k

Jon Jones and Former Jackson-Wink Coach Frank Lester Are in a Furious Online Feud Right Now… Check it Out… 

UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones is no stranger to an online beef. But this is extraordinary. He’s currently going back and forth with a former Jackson-Wink coach. Frank Lester called out Mike Winkeljohn as well as Jones in a crazy online attack.

Lester is claiming that Jones owes him over $10,000. He wrote a massive message on Twitter about this and warned Jones to watch out for himself. ‘Bones’ has gone in equally hard on the former striking coach. Long story short, he hasn’t held back.

This is incredibly unseemly but entertaining at the same time. Check out these two guys air their dirty laundry in public.

Beef

Jackson-Wink is one of the most prestigious gyms on the planet. Mike Winkeljohn and Greg Jackson are the men in charge. They’ve fallen out with various fighters at different stages, including Donald Cerrone. However, this is the next level from a former member of staff. Check out Lester’s message below:

“After 3 different houses, being screwed over by the best team in the world (@jacksonwink_mma) & No.1 lb for lb fighter on the planet @jonnybones on over $13k on his last title fight, myself, my wife & our children Jordan, Braden, & baby on the way Arya, finally have a home big enough for all of us. I have no regrets, I did my job and everybody who has followed my journey knows I did my job, Jon Jones & Mike Winkeljohn just did me dirtier that I have ever even seen in this fight game. But good always prevails over evil and we have a home big enough for all of us.

Warning

Lester took it too far when he basically told Jones to watch his back. That’s not smart and he’s definitely going to be receiving a letter from Jones’s attorney if he keeps going like this. It’s funny because normally it would be the other way around.

I will be opening TANK Mixed Martial Arts In the next 6 months and we are going to takeover the beautiful city of Albuquerque New Mexico! Karma is real. And Jon, it’s on site with me & you & you know that. You stole from my family. You got me fired from my job for no reason and for that I am grateful bc I will never work for a crook like Mike Winkelloser again. I’m 10X ‘s the coach you’ve ever been. You just bought out Greg’s name and unfortunately JACKSONS was out in the control of a dirtbag. But f**k you all very much! The only@thing that comes to Ming when I hear your names are, cowardice & deceit. It’s on site JBJ. So keep that security close”

Response

Jones hasn’t held back in his response. He’s no stranger to an online beef, just ask Daniel Cormier. In short, he has torn Lester to shreds. We’re not going to say anything else, so check out his full message below:

“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 totally paid you that amount, not once and 10 years have I ever gotten a complaint about not paying staff members. If anything I’m always complemented for being peoples highest paying client by a longshot. I won’t even get in to 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.”
