TMZ just broke the news that the Las Vegas police force is scouring the city/desert for a War Machine after three people were put in the hospital after a wild altercation. One of which is supposedly his girlfriend, Christy Mack. You know her. Don’t act like you don’t. She’s in videos only mature people should watch.
And here we thought that a relationship solidified by tattoos of your partner’s name across your throat would last forever, but we’re naive and romantic.
Apparently War, or Mr. Machine, is the prime suspect. Or so the Las Vegas police determined after viewing the scene, but they can’t find him, so no one really knows what’s going on. One thing’s for certain, we’ll enjoy his prison blogs again if these allegations are true. So there’s that to look forward to. For now, we’ll look at his social media accounts for eerie clues of what happened.
Here’s his last tweet:
I can’t believe this…I must be cursed.

Domestic violence is not a joke, especially when you’re a trained martial artist. If the allegations are true, we hope War Machine rots in prison for a long time. ‘
*Update* We just received this statement from Bellator:
Bellator President Scott Coker has issued a statement regarding Jon Koppenhaver, War Machine: “We have a zero tolerance policy here at Bellator when it relates to any form of domestic violence, and after learning of this latest incident involving Jon Koppenhaver, War Machine, Bellator is releasing him from him promotional contract with the organization.”
