War Machine Pleads Not Guilty to Felony Charges Related to Beating of Christy Mack, Will Face Trial in February

(War Machine is scolded for snickering in court during Christy Mack’s testimony last Friday.)

Former MMA fighter Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver — better known to his fans as War Machine — plead not guilty yesterday to the 34 felony counts he is facing related to the August 8th beating of his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack and her friend Corey Thomas, as well as previous attacks on Mack dating back to May 2013. Koppenhaver entered his pleas at Nevada’s Clark County District Court, and will remain incarcerated until his trial begins in February.

Last month, Koppenhaver’s lawyer was looking to make a plea deal to avoid a life sentence. Then, Koppenhaver tried to kill himself in jail, and his defense strategy apparently changed. The charges that Koppenhaver currently faces include felony battery causing substantial bodily harm, sexual assault, burglary, strangulation, attempted sexual assault, and preventing or dissuading a witness or victim from reporting a crime.


Brett Rogers Will Be In Court Today to Try to Prove That His Wife, Neighbor and Kids Are All Lying About Him Being a Piece of Sh*t

(If you didn’t hit her, explain what happened to her eyebrows then, smart guy.)

Brett Rogers will appear in Dakota County District court today in Minnesota where he will attempt to explain to the jury in the case that everyone who saw him drunkenly beating the shit out of his wife is full of BS.

You may recall that “The Grim” was picked up at his Apple Valley home and charged with multiple domestic assault-related  felonies back in July after a neighbor called police after witnessing the heavy-handed former Strikeforce heavyweight using his wife’s face as a focus mitt.

According to the police report, the witness stated that he looked out his window and saw Rogers standing over top of his wife in their backyard punching her in the head repeatedly. After the attack, the neighbor says he saw the victim get up and that she was bleeding and missing a tooth. Rogers nine and 10-year-old daughters told another neightbor and officers who attended the scene that they witnessed the assault, which they said wasn’t a one-time occurrence, and their account of the attack matched the other witness’. When officers located Mrs. Rogers a short time later she denied the attack at first, but soon admitted what had happened.


Joe Son’s Rape Trial to Begin March 24

(Why go to trial? Refuting DNA evidence is like fighting GSP. You aren’t going to win unless you’re a short loudmouth from New York… Serra? No, we meant “My Cousin Vinny.”)

Accused rapist Joseph Hyungmin Son, perhaps better known to MMA fans as Joe Son, will finally get his day in court according to the Orange County District Attorney’s office. After being imprisoned for two-and-a-half years while awaiting trial on charges that he and an unnamed accomplice kidnapped and raped an unnamed female victim in 1990, the onetime UFC fighter who played Random Task in the movie Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, will see his case brought before the courts on March 24. The facts of the case will be presented by Orange County Deputy District Attorney Eric Scarborough of the Sexual Assault Unit and will be contested by a jury of Son’s peers.

If you’re unfamiliar with the case, be forewarned that the details of the crime after the jump are unsettling.
