To make his farce more credible, Lester even accompanied his & # 39; game & # 39; with sound effects. At one point he even calls himself not to block an attack.
Since the tweet in which he appeared was viral, Lester has eliminated the VOD from the fight. But in a follow-up broadcast, he said he had not heard from Twitch, the UFC or any other authority in that regard. Lester, however, found some success in his efforts; his track count, which he says has been stagnant at 2,000 for several years, has more than doubled since Saturday night, and now has reached almost 5,000.
