Manipulative freelancer

I created a project for SEO and finalized a freelancer for $250 total cost. After 2 weeks of working and releasing first milestone payment of $150 now the freelancer claims he can only work for 1 month for the cost i am paying. I have already activated the 2nd milestone payment.  I ended his contract and he is claiming to undo all the work he did that i already paid for. Please advice on how to proceed with this. Is there a way i can create a dispute case aout this since i already paid $200 for nothing done. TIA

Besides sollutions via official channels (e.g. complaining with upwork's customer services) I can recommend you this, being a Freelancer.

Looking at this it looks like this is a very poor arrangement that Upwork does !

No ... this is called "feedback manipulation" and is against Upwork's TOS. Clients (and freelancers) can be reported for doing this.
