In an allegedly stunning display of alleged proof of his alleged manhood, MMA star Jon Koppenhaver, AKA War Machine, allegedly beat his ex-girlfriend within an inch of her life. War Machine — he had his name legally changed — says he is innocent. His ex-girlfriend, porn star Christy Mack — who was left hospitalized with 18 broken bones, a broken nose, ruptured liver, fractured rib, multiple stab wounds, and numerous missing and broken teeth — says otherwise.
The story is pretty well-known by now. Christy Mack says War Machine came by her house unannounced, found her and a male friend there, fully clothed, and started an evening of abuse that she thought would kill her. She posted details of the incident on her Twitter account.
"When he arrived, he found myself and one other fully clothed and unarmed in the house. Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face. I have no recollection of how many times I was hit, I just know my injuries that resulted from my beating."
According to Mack, War Machine cut off her hair with a kitchen knife, poked her with the knife in the ear, hand, and head, and threatened her with the blade when the knife handle broke off.
"He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly. He took my phone and canceled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts. He told he was going to rape me, but was disappointed in himself when he could not get hard.”
Mack managed to get out of the house while War Machine rummaged through kitchen drawers, presumably looking for another knife.
After a manhunt, War Machine was arrested. In his own tweets, he claimed he was “fighting for [his] life” at Mack’s house.
I'm not a bad guy, I went to surprise my gf, help her set up her show and to give her an engagement ring and ended up fighting for my life.

Mack has gotten offers to replace her teeth, gotten a temporary set until that work is done, and is generally well-supported by those who read of her story. Her colleagues in the porn industry have united behind her.
