An attractive couple break up and they each move on with their lives.

Happens everyday in America.

Sometimes though, one party or the other is insanely jealous, vengeful or spiteful.

Occasionally things get violent.

That’s exactly what happened to Christy Mack, the former girlfriend of boxer Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver.

She says he beat the hell out of a friend of hers and then beat her viciously.

Furthermore, it’s not his first rodeo at beating women.  Jezebel has the story:

Mack also stated it was not the first time Koppenhaver beat her. Our colleagues over at Deadspin have a good roundup of his history:

Machine has a history of assault. He attacked a former girlfriend at a porn industry party back in 2009, and has served time in jail for a felony assault in 2010, among other arrests. He also tweeted that he raped Mack last year before he and Mack claimed it was only a joke.

We’ll give you a chance to bail on the graphic post-beating photos which are below her description of what happened.

We wish the best for a speedy recovery for Miss Mack.

If she’s not a prohibited person, we expect she’ll be getting herself a gun in the near future.  Particularly as she noted that she and her friend were both unarmed.

Boxers ain’t bulletproof, and a 105-pound woman can easily wield a Glock 19 or Smith and Wesson revolver to dissuade violent attack.

If you’re not a gun owner yourself, do you think it might be best to take proactive action to arm yourself against victimization like this that can happen to anyone?


At about 2 am Friday morning, Jon Koppenhaver arrived unannounced to my home in Las Vegas, NV, after he broke up with me in May, he moved out of my house and back to San Diego. When he arrived, he found myself and one other fully clothed and unarmed in the house. Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face. I have no recollection of how many times I was hit, I just know my injuries that resulted frm my beating. My injuries include 19 broken bones around my eyes, my nose is broken in 2 places, I am missing teeth and several more are broken. I am unable to chew, or see out of my left eye. My speech is slurred from my swelling and lack of teeth. I have a fractured rib and severely ruptured liver from a kick to my side. My leg is so badly injured I have no been able to walk on my own. I also attained several lesions from a knife he got from my kitches. He pushed the knife into me in some areas such as my hand, ear, and head. He also sawed much of my hair off with this dull knife. After some time, the knife broke off of the handle and continue to threatened me with the blade. I believed I was going to die. He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly. He took my phone and cancelled all my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts. He told me he was going to rape me, but was disappointed in himself when could not get hard. After another hit or two, he left me on the floor bleeding and shaking, holding my side from the pain of my rib. He left the room and went to the kitchen where I could hear him ruffling through my drawers. Assuming he was finding a sharper, more stable knife to end my life, I ran out my back door, shutting it behind me so the dogs didn’t run inside to tip him off. I hopped the fence to the golf course behind my house and ran to a neighboring house. Naked and afraid he would catch me, I kept running through the neighborhood knocking on doors. Finally, one answered and I was brought to the hospital and treated for my injuries.

I would like to thank everyone for their support though this rough time. I am healing fast and well, and I appreciate all of the prayers and visits I have received over the past few days. After many months of fear and pressure to keep this man happy, although I fear for my life, I feel that I can no longer put myself in this situation. The cheating by him nearly ever day, and almost weekly abuse is now more than I can stand. There is a $10K reward for the capture of Jonathan Koppenhaver at this time. Please report any information to your local police.

Thank You

Christy Mack

  1. Yep this can happen to anyone. That’s why we have to think ahead and make sure it don’t happen. To. ” me”. Hope the sob that did this to her spends a long long time in jail thinking about what he did to that beautiful woman Hope she recovers from that and in time she’ll be as beautiful as she was.

  2. Sorry, folks, I’m calling BS on this.

    They don’t call that guy “War Machine” for nothin’.

    He is an absolute ANIMAL. And that’s all the worse for wear she looks? Heck, I’ve seen women bruise their legs worse bumping into countertops!!!!!!!1

    And her face????? C’mon, people! This is a setup, the whole way.

    IF that guy had gone off on her, her HEAD WOULD AND COULD LITERALLY HAVE COME OFF HER NECK. He is an absolute BEAST in the octagon.

    I don’t believe this for a moment.

    Yeah, saw his tweets. They’re not exactly a confession.

    Sorry, but that guy could tear a person limb from limb. If he were intent on doing her harm she would look a LOT WORSE than this. She looks like she bumped her leg on a coffee table and her nose on a counter. It takes NOTHING to do that to a human face. This guy ? SOrry, but she’d be in PIECES.

    Calling BS.

    Anyone with me on that call?

    1. Try not to sound quite so full of admiration… even if it were a hoax, which would be a really strange hoax to perpetuate, the point remains.

      People much smaller and less trained have pounded their way through the human skull. People much smaller than her have perforated people much larger than him to defend themselves.

  3. Ken is our resident sarcasm apprentice.

    I think this poor girl is going to need some time to heal and will probably never be the same again.

    As for this violent boxer? They’ll prolly find him post-suicide.


  4. Ken,
    Did you not read the story???? 18 broken bones in her face. Stab wounds in her ears and head. Go back to the hole that you crawled out of. I am completely disgusted by you, your comments, and your attitude in general on a daily basis when you post such idiotic remarks. You are not helping the cause and you are promoting a very negative image for this site and organization. Not to mention that not one single woman should ever have to suffer such abuse. And for you to demean her by saying this is a hoax only adds insult to injury. Shame on you.

    1. So SHE says!!!

      Isn’t it USUAL that the DOCTOR is quoted? Hmmm? Why no DOCTOR commenting here on such a violent, barbaric attack? Maybe, cause it didn’t happen.

      Or, do you just believe everything every attention whooor, porn star tells you?

      I’m not lauding the guy, nor defending him by any means, I am SIMPLY SAYING that, if this guy had BEAT this woman, she’d look a far sight worse.

      I’m guaranteeing you this is an attention ploy of some warped sort.

      If she were as broken up inside, she’d be too hurt to release this “statement.”

      It’s PHONY as an O’Blowme promise, mark my words.

    2. Don’t even justify his stupidity with a response. Just your average internet troll. Speaking of “attention whooors,” pot, meet kettle. His name is Ken.

      Just ignore him and he’ll go away…eventually.

    3. SO, if there’s any truth to this, why has the “other guy” not been heard from?

      Do ANY of you not find this whole thing too convenient yet bizarre?

      And, instead of calling me a troll, why don’t you comment on why this girl looks like she just had a rough weekend partying instead of a “near-death” beating by a professional killer?


      Have NONE of you ever been in a fight? Have none of you ever got popped in the nose? Evidently not. This gurl, had she been HONESTLY beaten by a professional fighter, would be in PIECES.

      I’ve been in fights and, when hit by far weaker and less-trained combatants than “War Machine” ended up looking like her (of course, you should see the other guy!), and I’m telling you, this WOMAN was NOT beaten up by a professional.

      My best guess is it was the “other guy” who, in collaboration with her, wants to get “War Machine” arrested for something. Best guess.

      YOu cannot simply pretend that these pictures, while moving, ARE NOT the depiction of a woman beaten up by a professional killer who went UNOPPOSED for what, her story says, was hours. She’d simply come apart, like after an attack by a shark.

      This story is a FAKE.

      NOW, why don’t you comment on my COMMENTS instead of mounting personal attacks on me? OH, and forget calling me a racist, too.

  5. “He has beaten me many times before.”
    How stupid does one have to be to go back after the first time?

    1. It’s common though. I’ve known many women who kept going back to the scumbags who beat them over and over again. If you learn more about their history, usually they had an abusive father or an absent one.
      If you have daughters, be a good example for them, because they’ll wind up looking for guys that remind them of their fathers. Sometimes that’s good, sometimes it’s not, but that’s the way it generally works.

  6. To error on the side of caution, I’ve hidden Ken’s posts.

    He had some good points about not jumping to conclusions.

    We aren’t here to throw stones at this girl’s profession. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone sort of thing.

    I don’t have time to edit those long missives by Ken to remove the most objectionable aspects while leaving the good stuff.

    Ken, please think about what you post before you click “post comment”. Thank you.
