Although details are still developing regarding MMA fighter Jonathan “War Machine” Koppenhaver alleged beating of his adult film actress ex-girlfriend Christy Mack, it’s been reported that seven warrants for his arrest have been issued.
Last Friday in Las Vegas, War Machine, which is his legal name now, reportedly unleashed a brutal beating and photos of Mack’s injuries have hit the Web in recent days. Still at large, War Machine faces charges of battery, strangulation, gross lewdness, assault with a deadly weapon and coercion/threat with force according to fighting website MMAFighting.com.

According to a statement made by Mack on Monday, Machine allegedly broke into her house in the early hours Friday, August 8th, assaulted an unnamed victim, then viciously beat Mack, resulting in a litany of injuries that included 18 broken bones, several missing or broken teeth, and a ruptured liver.
Representatives from the LVPD confirmed to MMAFighting.com on Monday that Machine is currently wanted as the “primary suspect” of an alleged incident that occurred at approximately 4 a.m. on Friday, August 8, in which two victims suffered “severe but non-life threatening injuries.”
War Machine, a largely journeyman fighter, has been booted from the Ultimate Fighting Championship league for offensive remarks regarding late fighter Evan Tanner. He also has toiled in and out of the Bellator Fighting Championships league.
After being kicked out of Bellator for racist slurs and threats against President Barack Obama, the league resigned him in 2011 but booted him last Friday after the Mack assault allegations went public.
