Three Myths Busted by the War Machine/Christy Mack Police Report

To this point, everything we “know” about War Machine‘s alleged assault of Christy Mack comes from Mack’s gruesome public statement, along with conjecture from War Machine apologists who weren’t there. Yesterday, TapNapSnap uploaded the official police report — which was drafted and signed on August 9th — and it sheds a little more light on some of the questions that still remain from the incident. Here are three myths that have been officially busted, now that we know what was actually reported to police…

1) War Machine was “fighting for his life.” According to the fighter’s initial twitter recap of the incident, Jon Koppenhaver showed up to the home of Christy Mack (real name: Christine Mackinday) with an engagement ring, and found himself in a life-or-death struggle. The police report makes the incident sound pretty one-sided:

“At approximately 1:30-2 am [Mackinday] woke up to her dogs barking (2 pit bulls that were also sleeping in her bed) and Koppenhaver walking into her room (Koppenhaver was wearing camo Tom’s, dark grey cargo shots [sic], and a white shirt which read ‘Alpha Male Shit Clothing Company’) and turned on the light. Koppenhaver than attacked [Corey] Thomas while he was lying in the bed and Koppenhaver began punching Thomas in the face. Mackinday asked Koppenhaver to stop and Koppenhaver continued to punch Thomas. While Koppenhaver was beating Thomas, Mackinday dialed 911 from her cell phone, and hid the phone from Koppenhaver. Mackinday did not say anything to Koppenhaver, and she left the phone with an open line.

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.”

Second Victim in War Machine Assault Identified as Reality Show Contestant Corey Thomas


(Sorry, it’s the only photo of this dude we could find. / Props: BuddyTV)

Quick update on the ongoing War Machine circus: According to TMZ, the man whose ass Jon Koppenhaver (allegedly!) kicked before brutalizing his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack has been identified as web designer and former reality show contestant Corey Thomas. War Machine reportedly gave Thomas a broken nose and two black eyes, and bit him on the face.

In 2009, Thomas briefly appeared on the VH1 reality series Megan Wants a Millionaire, in which a group of wealthy single men vied for the love of former Rock of Love contestant Megan Hauserman. Competing against such eligible bachelors as “Punisher,” “Cisco,” and “Sex Toy Dave,” Thomas survived the first three episodes — but the show was swiftly taken off the air after fellow contestant Ryan Jenkins murdered his wife and then killed himself.

Hopefully, the next update will be about War Machine getting tazed into submission by Duane Chapman. Stay tuned.

One day after he was released from Bellator for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend, porn star Christy Mack, notorious TUF alum War Machine (a.k.a Jon Koppenhaver) remains on the run from police with a $10,000 bounty on his head. Mack, however, has been hospitalized ever since.

After promising to make a statement this morning, Mack recently posted photos of her injuries and details of the assault via her Twitter. WARNING: They are absolutely horrific.

And Now He’s Fired: Bellator Fires War Machine Over Domestic Abuse Allegations [UPDATED]

Bellator has fired War Machine after a report from TMZ claimed he was involved in a domestic violence investigation.

TMZ’s report claimed the domestic dispute involved three people at War Machine’s Las Vegas home. Two people were reportedly injured so bad they had to go to the hospital. The report claimed one victim was War Machine’s “significant other.”

A tweet from Christy Mack, War Machine’s sort of girlfriend (the “it’s complicated” relationship status was made for them), seems to confirm the report:

Photo of the Day: War Machine & Christy Mack Validate Their Relationship With Matching Ink


(Two tattoos, zero real names. Photo via War Machine’s Twitter.)

According to our poll, a staggering 55.3% of you believed that former TUF star and current Bellator badass War Machine had the hottest pornstar girlfriend of them all in Ms. Christy Mack (to the 2 people who suggested “our mom,” that doesn’t even make sense. To the man/woman who suggested GSP & Dakota Cochrane, bravo.). Clearly, Mr. Machine agrees with this sentiment, which is why he and his significant other got coordinating tattoos over the weekend. Because if there’s one thing we’ve learned about a pornstar’s love, it’s that it’s forever.

On the heels of a first round TKO over Blas Avena in his Bellator debut, it appears that War Machine is riding pretty high these days. Gone are the days of assaulting his pornstar girlfriends at parties and, well, assaulting the patrons of Vegas gay clubs. Nowadays, a humbler, simpler War Machine can be found “crucifying” his pornstar girlfriend (his words, not ours) on Twitter when he’s not giving Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lessons to children whose parents have clearly never visited BeenVerified.com. It’s the American dream, really, and we wish these two kids the best of luck.

CagePotato Poll: Which MMA Fighter Had the Hottest Porn Star Girlfriend?


(Contestant 1: Christy Mack. In case you’re new to the Internet, you can see lots more of her on Google or her twitter page. Above image via Ranker)

Earlier this month, Bellator welterweight/retired porn-actor War Machine confirmed that he is in a romantic relationship with Christy Mack, a porn actress with a punk-vibe who has appeared in such flicks as Tattooed Anal Sluts and Trashy. How you react to this news depends a lot on your personal relationship with porn, and specifically with the porn featuring Christy Mack. For the record, Christy seems like a super lady, and we think the tattoo of the tall ship on her back is unique and eye-catching.

So, for those of you who care: Where does War Machine’s romance with Christy Mack rank in the short list of MMA fighters who have dated porn stars? Check out our quick rundown below, then vote in the SurveyMonkey widget at the end of page 2. Results will be collected and perhaps revealed if tomorrow turns out to be a really slow news day.
