Ken Shamrock wants to break the neck of 'War Machine,' who once took his 17 year-old daughter to Mexico ... and left her there

New, comments

And "The World's Most Dangerous Man" has been hunting him down ever since to break his neck.

"The thing that's sad about this is, I started Jon. When he first came into MMA, I'm the one that broke him into it in San Diego. I had issues with him. My 17-year-old daughter and Jon was 20-something years old, well he took her to Mexico and left her over there. He then ended up disappearing and I haven't seen him since. He's always been hiding from me because he knows if I see him I'll break his neck. He's always had an issue with this and the guy needs help. He doesn't need to do it by himself, he needs to, by the court, be put into some sort or rehab so he starts understanding. Because it doesn't have anything to do with him naturally, it's when he starts partying and out doing things he shouldn't be doing. He needs help, they need to get him off the street because if it wasn't for the fact that he didn't have access to another knife, who knows if this girl (Mack) would be alive right now."

-- Just when you thought War Machine couldn't get more of a bad rap after allegedly nearly beating his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack to death, Ken Shamrock comes out and tells NewsDiamant24H that he had his own issue with the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Bellator MMA fighter. It's no secret that Shammy was the one who helped "War Machine" crack into mixed martial arts (MMA) and, ultimately, got him a spot on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6. And it was seemingly during this time that the man formerly known as Jon Kopenhaver got close with Shamrock's much younger daughter. Eventually, the two took a trip to Mexico and "War Machine," inexplicably, left her stranded there. Doing his best "Dog The Bounty Hunter" impersonation, Shamrock has been trying to hunt him down ever since, but was unable to exact father's revenge. Thankfully, U.S. Marshals apprehended the troubled fighter on Aug. 15, 2014, in Simi Valley, Calif. (mugshot here) and "War Machine" now sits behind bars. Safe, for now, from "The World's Most Dangerous Man."
