I’m pretty sure we can all agree that is takes a certain kind of human being to be able to step inside a cage and fight for a living.
Some guys are genuine fighters, some are normal people with a few screws loose and others are just flat out psychopaths.
There has never been a better example of a psychopath then the self proclaimed War Machine, John Koppenhaver.
On August 8, 2014, Friday night around 2 AM, Koppenhaver allegedly broke into ex-girlfriend and porn star, Chirsty Mack’s home in Las Vegas, where he found her and another man together.
What actually happens at this point is still up in the air but from Christy Mack’s recollection of the night, what happened next is not for the faint of heart.
Mack, who is still in the hospital, recovering from multiple broken bones, including orbital fractures, and lacerations, said she was savagely beaten and stabbed within an inch of her life by ex-boyfirend and MMA fighter Koppenhaver.
Mack also says she was forced to strip naked and shower before the beating took place and during the merciless assault, Koppenhaver even told Mack he was going to rape her.
Only after a few minutes of Koppenhaver letting off the gas to find another knife to stab her with, was Mack able to sneak out of her house and flee to a near by neighbor’s place.
Koppenhaver fled the scene and has been on the run from the police ever since.
Now, I am not one to jump to conclusions, especially when I have only heard one side of the story but knowing that Koppenhaver is a volatile and erratic human being makes it hard to believe otherwise.
Keep in mind this is the same guy who legally changed his name to War Machine because of a dispute with the WWE.
This is the same guy who served two stints in jail, one year apiece, both for assault charges.
This is the same guy who proclaimed on twitter that real men rape.
Oh, and did I forget to mention this is the same guy that threw a legit hissy fit over not getting a Slurpee? A Slurpee guys… What grown man videotapes himself losing his cool over a Slurpee?
It is incidents like these that happen time and time again that make it hard to stick up for this guy.
Since the assault on Friday night in Las Vegas, Koppenhaver has been on the run and has taken to twitter to proclaim his innocence, stating, “I’m not a bad guy, I went to surprise my gf, help her set up her show and to give her an engagement ring and ended up fighting for my life.”
He would go on to tweet, “I only wish that man hadn’t been there and that Christy & I would behappily engaged. I don’t know y I’m so cursed. One day truth will come out.”
If all that Christy Mack said is true, then no Koppenhaver, you are not cursed. The people whose lives you have managed to ruin, those are the ones who are cursed.
You are not a good guy. Good guys do not have multiple assault charges on their record, good guys do not beat women to the brink of death and good guys do not proclaim that real men rape.
Koppenhaver or War Machine or whatever ridiculous name you want to go by, you may be the scum of the earth.
Again, we have only one side of the story and the police are still investigating the matter but it doesn’t look good for the ex-Bellator fighter with two prior convictions on his record.
If all is true than take a good look kids, study this guy, this is the kind of man you do not want to grow up to be like.
If all is false, than the truth is going to be one hell of a story.
