  • At 2:20 am on August 8, Christy Mack’s apartment was invaded by her ex-boyfriend and former MMA fighter Jon Koppenhaver, aka War Machine. As we all know, nothing good happens once one stays out past two o’clock. In this case, Mack experienced perhaps the worst thing that can happen at such an hour – domestic abuse.

    The events which transpired last Friday morning are haunting, to say the least. At the end of the altercation, Mack was left with 18 broken bones around her eyes, her nose broken in two places, missing and broken teeth, a broken rib, a severely ruptured liver, a nonworking leg, and multiple lesions and bruises covering her body. In order to bring attention to her plight, Mack took her story to Twitter to share with all of her followers:

    (Warning: The events described and the photos included may be disturbing to some readers. Discretion is advised.)

    At around 2 am Friday morning, Jon Koppenhaver arrived unannounced to my home in Las Vegas, NV, after he broke up with me in May, he moved out of my house and back to San Diego. 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.

    My injuries include 18 broken bones around my eyes, my nose is broken in 2 places, I am missing teeth and several more are broken. I am unable to chew, or see out of my left eye. My speech is slurred from my swelling and lack of teeth. I have a fractured rib and severely ruptured liver from a kick to my side. My leg is so badly injured I have not been able to walk on my own. I also attained several lesions from a knife he got from my kitchen. He pushed the knife into me in some areas such as my hand, ear, and head. He also sawed much of my hair off with this dull knife. After some time, the knife broke off of the handle and continued to threaten me with the blade. I believed I was going to die. He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly.

    He took my phone and cancelled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts. He told me he was going to rape me, but was disappointed in himself when he could not get hard. After another hit or two, he left me on the floor bleeding and shaking, holding my side from the pain of my rib. He left the room and went to the kitchen where I could hear him ruffling through my drawers. Assuming he was finding a sharper, more stable knife to end my life, I ran out my back door, shutting it behind me so the dogs didn’t run inside to tip him off. I hopped the fence to the golf course behind my house and ran to a neighboring house. Naked and afraid he would catch me, I kept running through the neighborhood knocking on doors. Finally, one answered and I was brought to the hospital and treated for my injuries.

    I would like to thank everyone for their support through this rough time. I am healing fast and well, and I appreciate all of the prayers and visits I have received over the past few days. After many months of fear and pressure to keep this man happy, although I fear for my life, I feel that I can no longer put myself in this situation. The cheating by him nearly every day, and almost weekly abuse is now more than I can stand. There is a $10k reward for the capture of Jonathan Koppenhaver at this time. Please report any information to your local police.

    Since that time, Koppenhaver has not been seen. However, he has taken the time to harass Mack online through Twitter, sending her Tweets expressing his apologies for his actions:

    According to Koppenhaver and his brother, the truth is far from what Mack has been sharing with social media. In speaking to, Michael Eugene Koppenhaver, War Machine’s brother, told his brother’s side of the story, which is ill-conceived at best.

    According to Michael Koppenhaver, War Machine and Mack were still together at the time of the attack. He visited her apartment at 2:20 in the morning to surprise her with an engagement ring, only to find her in the bed with another man. Upon seeing War Machine in her apartment, Mack picked up a knife. She, along with her supposed lover, then attacked War Machine, prompting him to fight for his life.

    And this man is a trained mixed martial arts fighter who was once employed by the UFC….

    A contract the man most likely should have never had considering his previous stints within the United States prison system. In 2010, Koppenhaver was sentenced to one year in a county jail for felony assault. In 2012, Koppenhaver spent another year in prison, this time due to assault in a nightclub.

    During his stays in prison, Koppenhaver outlined his disturbing thoughts in online blogs, most of which can be found here. In one disturbing post, Koppenhaver revealed his feelings toward marriage and women:

    So it’s Christmas day and I’m laying in my bunk wondering “Why in the hell do American men get married!?” As I write this, there is one guy in here for slapping his wife, one here for yelling at his wife, and one here for beating some guy’s ass that disrespected his wife. WTF!? If your wife is being a bitch you can’t slap her, if your wife is yelling at you, God forbid you yell back, and if some asshole hurts your wife, you can not protect her! LMFAO! What in the FUCK! is REALLY going on!? Next thing you know it will be illegal to fuck your wife! LMAO! Maybe then, MEN in this country will get the fucking hint and MOVE! This country forces you to be a bitch! And then if you resist, you go to jail! And if you give in and become a passive lil’ pansy, your wife is gonna sneak around and get fucked by someone like a single War Machine! HAHA! And believe me, in my day, I have fucked more than one wife who complained about being “sick and tired of wearing the pants in the family.” What a fucking country! De-masculated men left and right, mere sheep for the cowards in political offices to boss around and PLAY tough with. A country that preaches “Violence solves nothing” to it’s masses, but is eager to run off to war with ANY and EVERY country, who refuses it’s verbal bullying.

    To add to Koppenhaver’s misogynistic character even more, he once stated that if anything happened to his relationship to Christy Mack after getting her last name tattooed across his neck, he would most likely kill her and simply add an “RIP” above the name to memorialize his dead girlfriend.

    Currently, there are multiple rewards out for any information leading to the arrest of Koppenhaver. For one man, rewards don’t get fast enough results, however. Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, has enlisted his bounty hunting services to assist Mack bring Koppenhaver to justice. Dog laid down the gamut on Twitter yesterday, and now War Machine is on notice:

    Usually, reality television stars are not the ones to turn to during times of trouble. However, anything will do in this attempt to bring Koppenhaver to justice. Let’s hope that the Dog and his team are successful in their search and that Koppenhaver is brought to swift and rightful justice in the near future.
