To everyone who thought War Machine would self-distruct and disappear after being kicked out of the UFC, fired from Bellator, and arrested following a fracas at a gay club — well, allow him to grab his crotch in your direction. On Saturday night, the always outspoken, rarely coherent TUF 6 vet won for the third time since his UFC exit, putting away opponent Reshad Woods via second-round rear-naked choke at an Ultimate Warrior Challenge event in Fairfax, Virginia.
Say what you want about this retard, but he does know how to put on an entertaining fight…
With Tito Ortiz shouting encouragement from cageside, the fighter formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver withstood some seriously heavy blows from Woods — including a couple of knees that seemed to rock him — until the opportunity to sink in the choke presented itself. And so, Machine’s life as a wandering ronin continues; Strikeforce has reportedly expressed interest in signing him, but he plans to rack up experience on the regional circuit for another year. He’ll next face Roger Bowling at MMA Big Show on June 20th in Belterra, Indiana.
