Ex-UFC Mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Jon Koppenhaver, now known as "War Machine," is scheduled to appear before California Superior Court on Tuesday (Aug. 19, 2014) to answer for charges filed in Las Vegas, Nevada, stemming from an alleged attack on porn star Christy Mack (see the graphic images here).
And if some of the items listed in the official police report are true, he could have a lot to answer for.
Our friends at TapNapSnap uploaded a PDF with all the relevant details (read it here) and the boys at CagePotato were kind enough to type up some of the relevant points. But keep in mind this is just one side of the story. Well, two if you count this guy.
[Mackinday] has been [in] an ‘on-again, off-again' dating relationship with Jonathan (Jon) Koppenhaver for the past 15 months. Currently they are in a dating relationship and she identified Koppenhaver as her ‘boyfriend'.
Mackinday's friend Corey Thomas was also at Mackinday's home and sleeping in the same bed as Mackinday. Mackinday described she and Thomas are currently in a "non-sexual relationship", though have had sex in the past.
Mackinday explained Koppenhaver choked Thomas by placing Thomas in a ‘rear naked choke'...The fighting continued for approximately 10 minutes and Koppenhaver eventually released Thomas from the choke hold. Thomas was bleeding "profusely" from his face and Koppenhaver had Thomas's blood on his shirt. Koppenhaver told Thomas to leave and told Thomas that he would kill him if he reported this and Koppenhaver went to jail. Koppenhaver said he would give his friends all of Thomas's information and his friends would find Thomas and kill him if anything happened to Koppenhaver.
Mackinday remembers Koppenhaver going through her Instagram and Twitter accounts and every time Koppenhaver found something he did not like, he would hit her in the face with both open and closed fists...While Mackinday was lying on the ground in the bathroom Koppenhaver told her ‘that's my pussy and I'm gonna take it back now.' Koppenhaver then licked his hand and put it on her vagina.
Mack's statement to police contradicts her previous claim (read it) that her and Koppenhaver broke up back in May, though it could come down to what her definition of "on again, off again" is, in terms of their romantic relationship. Either way, it doesn't sound like War Machine was too happy about finding her in bed with another man (see what he said about it here), even though it appears to be in a non-sexual capacity.
As for his side of the story, we're likely to get that as soon as tomorrow.
