War Machine vs Tex Johnson still on for Wild Bill's Fight Night 26 on April 17

Despite a recent arrest outside a San Diego watering hole that landed him and cuffs (and a spit bag), the mixed martial artist formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver (10-3) will return to the fight game against Tex Johnson (6-2) at Wild Bill's Fight Night 26 on April 17 in Atlanta, Georgia.

"War Machine" has been in the news recently more for his new-found adult film career than mixed martial arts. 

After making his debut in the porn industry late last year, Koppenhaver ran amock at an insider's party in which numerous bystanders fell victim to the TUF veteran's insanity. A warrant was subsequently granted for his arrest.

As far as his MMA career, Mr. Machine actually won five consecutive bouts following the release from his UFC contract after his loss to Yoshiyuki Yoshida at UFC 84, before dropping his last contest to David Mitchell at the appropriately named Tachi Palace Fights 1: "Most Wanted."

"Tex" Johnson (6-2), 23, has yet to compete past the first round in any of his fights to date, and all six of his victories have come via submission.

Wild Bill's Fight Night 26 is also expected to feature Sonny South, Joe Merit, William Kuhn, Sean Kilgus, and Dustin Chovanic.
