I call this tale THE ACTION JUNKEEZ RACECAR
Accept a deferred payment arrangement, or lose my job completely.
This postponement would total thousands and pay out in January.
“It'll be a nice nest egg for you & Lenny”
But come January 2018, not only did Jon NOT pay ANYTHING, he was downright annoyed that I expected him to.
He owed me a balance of $8,000.
That fight would not come until June 1 vs @BenSaundersMMA, UFC FN 131
Especially WHILE I’m still owed THOUSANDS for this show’s production work?
But June 1 comes & goes, and @EllenbergerMMA is EllenbergerMIA.
NOW I PANIC.
If this guy ISN’T a “man of his word," what am I supposed to do? Kick his ass?
Says the money is on the way…
...and sends $2,000.
No explanation. No apology.
Forced to ask “where’s the other $6,000?” Jake replies he’s “fighting again August 25”
Despite the fact Jake DOES fight on Aug 25, vs @Bryan_Barberena at UFC FN 135, he never contacts me or Lenny ever again.
It was over.
I had hit rock bottom.
Cheated out of thousands for months of work, and completely powerless to do anything about it.
Then, at my absolute lowest, I saw it…
SO DID WE!
That's WHY we trusted him!
But he came to our home, lied to our face, dragged it out for MONTHS, and then GHOSTED US.
What say you, Jake? Am I lying about ONE WORD of this?
Or just apologize and pay your fucking debt like men.
