War Machine found guilty on 29 charges in Christy Mack case

MMA fighter War Machine has been found guilty of twenty-nine felony counts relating to his 2014 domestic violence assault on ex-girlfriend Christy Mack.

Koppenhaver, 35, carried out a brutal assault against Mack and Thomas in August 2014 which left Mack suffering from numerous injuries included a punctured lung and several broken bones.

Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver could face life in state prison if he's found guilty of the top counts, including kidnapping and sexual assault, in the beating of Christy Mack and Corey Thomas.

"'Now I have to kill you because people saw you trying to escape, '" she recalled Koppenhaver saying after an incident sparked by his dislike of a wig and decorative teeth she wore.

Mackinday, who is known as Christy Mack, testified that she was clothed in bed with Thomas when the ex-fighter stormed into her home and assaulted them.

Thomas testified that he suffered a broken nose, dislocated shoulder, scrapes, bruises and bite marks.

She was hospitalized with numerous bodily injuries, including a broken nose, lacerated liver, lost teeth and a fractured rib.

Prosecutors Jacqueline Bluth and Robert Stephens said they were happy with the verdict.

Mack said that after Thomas left, Koppenhaver turned his rage on her.

Koppenhaver was arrested a week later in the Los Angeles suburb of Simi Valley. The former fighter has been incarcerated since his apprehension in mid-2014. He has been serving a 1½- to four-year sentence for violating his probation on a 2009 conviction for attempted battery involving a 21-year-old woman.

Koppenhaver, 35, made his UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 6 Finale, where he won KO and Fight of the Night honors. His final fight was in 2013.
