Broken Christy Mack issues full statement, graphic photos in wake of alleged savage assault from War Machine

Warning: This is ugly, awful and terribly alarming.

UPDATE: War Machine has been sentenced to 36 years to life for his attack on Christy Mack - Full details here!

Christy Mack (tweets notwithstanding) has finally broken her silence.

The retired porn star has released a full statement following an alleged attack by her ex-boyfriend, Jon Koppenhaver a.k.a. "War Machine," the welterweight mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who was released from Bellator last Friday night (Aug. 8, 2014) when news broke that he was (once again) in trouble with the law.

And according to Mack, it was straight up savage:

"At about 2 a.m. 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 the 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 including my hand, ear and head. He also sawed much of my hair off with his 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 couldn't 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 the back door, shutting it behind me so the dogs did not run inside to tip him off. I hopped the fence to the gold course behind my house and ran into a neighboring house. naked and afraid he would catch me, I kept running through the neighborhood running through the 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 a lot 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 everyday, 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.

Thank you.

- Christy Mack

Mack was hospitalized following the alleged assault, which resulted in a broken face, missing teeth, fractured bones, attempted rape and more carnage, forcing her to cancel a promotional appearances in "Sin City," which just so happens to be the locale of choice for War Machine's marriage proposal.

One that he claimed ended in spilling his own blood after a still un-named, "fully-clothed" friend was confronted and beaten at the scene.

"War Machine" -- who is no stranger to prison -- remains at large, afraid the police with not give him "fair play." And after seeing the damage he has caused, he is more than likely very, very correct.

He resides in San Diego, California. There is also a $10,000 reward for any tips that lead to his arrest. "War Machine" is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
