Madderest Update: MMA Star War Machine Gets Life Sentence for Assaulting Porn Star Christy Mack

Christy Mack Shares Photos of the Beating She Allegedly Endured at the Hands of MMA Fighter War Machine
by Soraya Nadia McDonald
August 12, 2014



Las Vegas police began a search for a mixed martial arts fighter who goes by the name War Machine and is accused of severely beating his ex-girlfriend, porn actress Christy Mack, on Sunday night.

On Monday night, as he was still at large, Mack tweeted photographs from her hospital bed of the injuries the fighter allegedly inflicted, along with an account of what happened. War Machine’s real name is Jonathan Kopenhaver.







Here’s what Mack shared in the photo:


Quote:
At about 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 canceled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one could worry about my whereabouts.





He told me he was going to rape me … 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 love and support through this tough time. I am healing fast and well, and I appreciate all of the prayers and visits that I have received these past few days.







Initially, authorities believed that Kopenhaver may have traveled back to San Diego, where he lives, but have been unable to track him down. Kopenhaver appeared to discuss the assault on his Twitter account, where he also seemed to acknowledge that he was on the lam.


"I can't believe this...I must be cursed."

"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."

"I only wish that man hadn't been there and that Christy & I would be happily engaged.I don't know y I'm so cursed.One day truth will come out"







The tumult of Mack and Kopenhaver’s turbulent relationship has spilled onto Twitter before. In now-deleted tweets from November, Mack said that Kopenhaver had “full on beat the s— out of me, couldn’t show my face in public beating.

One of Mack’s friends, Kendall Karson, has started a crowdfunding campaign on Mack’s behalf, asking for money to cover Mack’s medical bills and living expenses until she is able to return to work.





Bellator, the MMA promotion company that used to employ Kopenhaver, issued a statement distancing itself from him.

We have a zero tolerance policy here at Bellator when it relates to any form of domestic violence, and after learning of this latest incident involving Jon Koppenhaver, War Machine, Bellator is releasing him from his promotional contract with the organization,” Bellator President Scott Coker wrote.





This is not Kopenhaver’s first run-in with the law. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Kopenhaver was arrested in 2009 on felony domestic violence charges.

In 2011, he was named in a negligence lawsuit against a nightclub after he allegedly beat up a patron while working as a bouncer.

Dog the Bounty Hunter: I'll Find MMA Fighter who Allegedly Assaulted Porn Star
August 13, 2014


Duane Chapman, better known as reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter, has pledged to track down the fugitive mixed martial arts fighter who allegedly assaulted porn star Christy Mack on August 8, News.com.au reports.

The brutal attack left Mack with broken bones, missing teeth and a severely ruptured liver, among other injuries. Since it happened, Las Vegas police have been searching for her former boyfriend, Jon Koppenhaver, a mixed martial arts fighter who legally changed his name to War Machine.

He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly.





War Machine has not surfaced since the attack, and there is a $10,000 reward for his capture.

Apparently, Chapman has taken an interest in the case and vowed to help capture the former UFC and Bellator fighter. Chapman gave War Machine 24 hours to turn himself in … more than 24 hours ago.

War Machine has not responded to the bounty hunter, though he did break his silence on Twitter yesterday to protest his innocence. The fugitive claims he went to Mack’s house in the early hours of Friday morning to propose.





War Machine has been imprisoned twice before for committing assault.

This time, police have issued seven separate warrants for his arrest, on counts including battery with substantial bodily harm, battery by strangulation, open and gross lewdness, assault with a deadly weapon and coercion.

Meanwhile, one of Mack’s colleagues in the adult film industry, Kendall Karson, has started a fundraising page in an effort to help her friend recover.

wow what a horrible excuse for a human being - takes a real tough guy to beat up a 100 pound woman he probably weighs twice as much as her.

I just have one question - if there was another person at the house when this idiot got there, and that person was attacked and then left - why the hell did that person not immediately call the police, surely they would have nkow that she would be in trouble in that situation?

I read about this story online. The guy is total scum and filth. I read about his so-called declarations of "love" and denial of guilt. He deserves to get everything waiting for him.

I have always understood that martial arts is a form of discipline and a way to bring spiritual stability. This guy brags about being an alpha male, and apparently he has to beat up on a woman who has very little defenses against his tendency and ability to cause violence. Misogyny is one of the worst things in the world, in my book. If he's not such a coward, why doesn't he show his worthless face?

I work out and lift weights. I look at this as an act of worship for God and use it accordingly. A certain amount of aggression is good for workouts and bodybuilding, it's a proper channel to get out energy. To beat up on women is a horrible crime. This lowlife should be glad he doesn't run into me, I'll make short work of this puny rodent-bag.


I know, I'm just talking, but I am working on the proper physique. It's nice to have a decent goal.

MMA Fighter ‘War Machine’ Arrested in Simi Valley
August 15, 2014
by Melissa Pamer



A mixed martial-arts fighter from California who was sought in connection with the beating of his adult film star ex-girlfriend was arrested Friday in Simi Valley.

Jonathan “War Machine” Koppenhaver was taken into custody about 1:45 p.m. in Simi Valley by police at the request of the U.S. Marshals Service.

An arrest warrant had been issued for Koppenhaver stemming from an incident in Las Vegas last week, according to police.





A former Simi Valley resident, Koppenhaver was found at the Extended Stay America Hotel located at 2498 Stearns St., just off the 118 Freeway, according to the Simi Valley Police Department.

Inside the room was “a small quantity of cash and some pizza,” a police news release stated.

He has been transported to the Ventura County Jail.





Las Vegas Police issued a warrant for his arrest, charging him with several counts of battery, assault with a deadly weapon and other crimes, according to the Los Angeles Times.

A Las Vegas police spokesman told KTLA on Tuesday that investigators believed Koppenhaver had gone to Southern California.

A fundraising page set up for Christy Mack’s medical expenses had raised more than $65,000 by Friday at https://www.giveforward.com/fundrais...l-expense-fund

It's so sad that so many women are in her situation because they're afraid of leaving their abusive boyfriends because they think their boyfriends will kill them. I'm sure Christy has probably tried to leave him and he probably threatened to kill her. So that's why she didn't leave him. I'm glad the police caught him. He needs to be in prison for at least 10 years just so he can learn from his mistake. It takes a person to go to prison for them to find out the hard way what a terrible decision they made so it won't happen again. But the sad thing is even if he does do some prison time and he gets out, he'll do the same dumb sh*t again to another woman if Christy leaves him.

apparently this guy has already been in prison for other assaults, and obviously is incapable of learning anything - he's just a waste of a human being.

so many people vilify this girl and others in her situation saying the she "deserved it" just because of what she chooses to do for a living; that is just stupid, nobody deserves to get the hell beaten out of them like that.

I think it is ridiculous that what this guy does for a living isn't focused on more - he beats people up, intentionally trying to injure them, and the whole sport just glorifies it.

I've seen that and others saying "well what do you expect when your man finds you in bed w/ someone else."

Sick stuff.

War Machine's Defense Attorney Claims He Couldn't Have Raped Her because She Was a Porn Star
by DailyMail.com and The Associated Press
11/24/15



Former MMA fighter War Machine blew a kiss at the prosecutor of his rape and attempted murder trial as he sat in court on Monday. Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver is accused of attacking his porn star ex-girlfriend Christy Mack and her friend in August 2014.

But on Monday, as the jury heard details of his sex life with Mack, the 33-year-old blew a kiss at the prosecutor. "Judge, for the record, Mr Koppenhaver just blew a kiss at me," deputy chief district attorney Jacqueline Bluth said, interrupting the defense during testimony, according to the Review Journal.



When Koppenhaver's defense lawyers tried to dismiss her claim, Bluth responded: "I'm not going to make up that he blew a kiss at me, which I find offensive."

Judge Elissa Cadish said: "Mr Koppenhaver, stop. You are not to make any gestures of any kind toward counsel. Don't go there."

Koppenhaver replied: "Yes, ma'am."







It comes a year after Koppenhaver openly laughed in court as Mack tearfully described the alleged abuse and sexual assault to the jury.

On Monday, his lawyer, Brandon Sua, proceeded to present a case that Mack's preference for rough sex during their relationship essentially counts as consent.



Bluth slammed Sua: "Because she consented to those acts through her course of employment does not mean the defendant is then entitled to think he can do that to her. You can't make that leap."

Cadish added: "I don't see how any of those activities that she did in adult movies would ever show her consent to the acts with the defendant that he's charged with. I'm not seeing that connection."

Sua defended his line of questioning in an interview with the Review Journal after the hearing. "The jury needs to know the nature of this relationship, and what was customary and consensual," he said.




The Mail usually doesn't identify alleged victims of sex assault, but his ex-partner Mack has agreed to the use of her name.

War Machine Sentenced to Life in Prison for Attack on Porn Star ex-Girlfriend
by Joshua Rhett Miller and Jackie Salo
June 5, 2017



Former mixed martial arts standout War Machine — who was convicted of sexually assaulting and kidnapping his ex-porn star girlfriend — was sentenced on Monday to life in prison with possibility of parole after 36 years.

The fighter, who legally changed his name from Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver during his MMA career, had faced a life sentence without parole following his conviction in March for brutally attacking ex-girlfriend Christine Mackinday — better known as former porn star Christy Mack — and her male companion Corey Thomas after finding the couple in bed in her Las Vegas home.



Appearing before the court Monday, a tearful Mack said that she did not know how long of a sentence would make things “feel right,” but that no amount will stop her from fearing for her life.

I don’t know if my life will feel complete in 12 years or 30 years and neither do you, but I do know when he gets out he will kill me,” Mack said.



Prior to being formally sentenced, Koppenhaver addressed the court, saying he regretted the attack every day and that something was “not right” in his head, “plain and simple.” He also asked Cadish if she received a letter he sent to the judge.

There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t seriously regret all of the things that I did,” Koppenhaver said. “I was a very, very lost and very empty person.







Defense attorney Jay Leiderman focused on Koppenhaver’s childhood, saying the former fighter had witnessed his mother get repeatedly abused by his stepfather. Leiderman, who said Koppenhaver suffered brain injuries and used steroids during his fighting career, had sought the minimum sentence of 16 years in prison.

He channeled all his rage into fighting, and the fighting became not enough,” Leiderman told Cadish.



When handing down the sentence, Cadish told the 35-year-old defendant that she didn’t think he was a “monster.

I think you have done a lot of good things in the world, but there are consequences and I have to look out for the well-being of the community,” Cadish said.
