The saga involving controversial former UFC and Bellator welterweight War Machine continues to twist and turn, as we saw today the injuries that Koppenhaver was alleged to have caused. The August 8 assault left his ex-girlfriend hospitalized with a broken face, missing teeth, knife wounds and horrific bruising.
Machine remains in hiding, and the general consensus is that he is laying low in Las Vegas, Nevada. Police have issued seven separate warrants for his arrest, ranging from misdemeanor charges to felony assault with a deadly weapon. The world of MMA shook it’s head as the troubled fighter made the headlines again, and for all the wrong reasons, but it appears that somebody out there is willing to do something about it. Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman, better known as ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’, posted a message for Koppenhaver to his Twitter account:

In response to Chapman’s threat, Machine’s brother (known on Twitter as ALPHAMALESHIT) posted the following:
.@DogBountyHunter you will not catch WM. He is in Canada hahaha good luck bro. Ur a felon u cant get here.

It is clear that Machine is a very troubled young man, and once again the judicial system in America has proven to be nothing more than a breeding ground for worse crime. With a $10k reward for the capture of Machine, and the whole world following this debacle, where is there left for Koppenhaver to hide? If he is, as ‘Shit’ describes, in Canada, then authorities may have to search quite hard for the embattled MMA star.
