Fighter War Machine extradited on assault charges



LAS VEGAS (AP) - The mixed martial arts fighter known as War Machine has been extradited to Las Vegas to face charges he beat his ex-girlfriend and then fled to California.

The man born Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver was booked into Clark County jail Saturday after he said in a Ventura County, California, courtroom last week that he wouldn't contest his return to Nevada.

Koppenhaver, 32, a former porn actor, is accused of beating adult film actress Christy Mack and her male friend at a Las Vegas home on Aug. 8 before fleeing to the Los Angeles suburb of Simi Valley, where he was arrested a week later.

Prosecutors have filed multiple felony battery, assault and coercion charges that could get Koppenhaver a total of more than 25 years in prison if he is convicted.
