If former UFC and Bellator fighter Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver is trying to avoid 34 felony counts including sexual assault and attempted murder stemming from an August 2014 incident that resulted in a media-frenzy of a manhunt, he certainly isn’t doing himself any favors.
Koppenhaver is accused of badly beating his ex-girlfriend and former porn star Christy Mack after he allegedly found her with another man at her Las Vegas home in the summer of 2014. In what resulted in one of the more harrowing images involving MMA in 2014, Mack was badly beaten and allegedly raped. She suffered numerous injuries that required multiple reconstructive surgeries.
But that doesn’t mean that War Machine is showing any remorse.
Quite the opposite, in fact, A video surfaced from the New York Daily News reporting that War Machine’s lawyer Brandon Sua suggested that Mack could not be raped because she was a porn star and likes rough sex. Wart Machine was also said to have blown a kiss at the female prosecutor assigned to his case, not exactly the best course if he wants to have any chance of living part of his remaining years outside of prison:
A violent offender with multiple arrests and jail stints, Koppenhaver is currently facing four years in prison for violating his parole but will be locked up for much, much longer if and when he is prosecuted for attacking his ex-girlfriend.
Judging by his recent actions in the courtroom, it appears that could be just the case. Are you at all surprised by the boorish behavior of War Machine and his team, or have you already forgotten about the volatile slugger most likely more known for his relationship with Mack?
