War Machine Tries To Hang Himself In Prison


By JOHN DORN

Almost a year after being brutally beaten and facing life-threatening injuries at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, former adult film star Christy Mack is opening up on camera about the August 2014 incident.

Former MMA fighter War Machine, who was born Jon Koppenhaver, is currently facing 32 felony charges after assaulting Mack and a male partner in her home last year. The 23-year-old suffered several broken bones, a ruptured liver and a thigh bruise so deep she couldn't walk for a week.

In an episode of HBO's 'Real Sports' that will air Tuesday night at 10 p.m. ET, Mack detailed the traumatizing experience.

In April, espnW.com's Jane McManus provided further detail in a feature on Mack and her recovery:

The beating left her unable to walk for a week because of the injuries to her thigh. Her liver had been ruptured from punches and kicks to her body -- the liver injury was so bad that doctors opted to not operate on her face because they worried she couldn't handle being put under anesthesia. She had 18 broken bones, a broken nose, multiple missing and broken teeth, and a fractured rib.

But perhaps nothing hurt like her recollection of what Koppenhaver did to her identity. At some point that night, Mack says he took the dull blade of the knife he was holding and meticulously began sawing her hair.

When he was done, Mack's trademark mohawk laid on the floor in a pile.


On Oct. 14, War Machine was found unresponsive in his cell after unsuccessfully attempting to commit suicide. His trial is tentatively set for September.
