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.
