The fighter formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver has led a life that is fitting for a legally named War Machine.

He went 1-1 in the UFC and was released for making unfortunate comments about Evan Tanner, and general difficulty. Then he signed with Bellator and was released for posting really, really unfortunate things about President Obama on his MySpace.

He tried a career in porn, which was shut down when he beat up more or less an entire room of people at a party attended by porn professionals. And he recently got out of a year in County for felony assault.

He signed wiih Bellator, and was planning on fightng soon, but now he reports on twitter that is going back to lock up for a year.

This is what happens when you refuse to grow up, kids.

Good riddance.

He's still paying for his past crimes. He's only been out 6 months and was keeping it together. I dunno why, but I'd like to see him succeed and stay out of trouble. Not sure if he'll get another chance with Bellator.

Just read through his Twitter and you'll see why I feel the way I do about him.

Yeah, he's been able to stay out of trouble (so far) but he's still one of the most immature 30-year olds I know of and has a ton of growing up to do.

My fav movie quote of all time. I use it on a monthly if not weekly basis: Comes from Back to the Future

Lorraine's parents are talking about Marty McFly, Lorraine's future son]
Stella Baines: He's a very strange young man.
Sam Baines: He's an idiot. Comes from upbringing. His parents are probably idiots too. Lorraine, if you ever have a kid that acts that way I'll disown you.

And I thought he finally learned his lesson. Geez.

EDIT: Well, nevermind. Read the article and he said he's being brought up on OLD charges.

Someone needs to get on his ass, get his life back in order before he worries about fighting again.

Whatever the circumstances, I fond it hard to feel bad for the guy. He's shown what kind of person he is time and again, and it's not the kind of person I can root for.

Would you really wish rape on the guy? It sounds like he was really trying to get his life in order and these are (admittedly in his words) old charges, so it's not like he's continued to screw up. He was out getting his career back in order and his past came came back to haunt him, I think he's getting a raw deal from the looks of it

Hmmm...either...

A - I was making a joke. Albeit childish, but a joke nonetheless

or...

B - I was being 100% serious and want nothing more than to see him get a good reeming in the pokey.

You decide.

By the way...serving time for one charge doesn't necessarily mean you're exempt from being punished for other things you've done. He's the one who messed up on MULTIPLE occasions and he's the one who has proven time and time again that he's about as immature as a 3rd grader watching a sex ed tape. I have no sympathy for the guy. He's the one putting himself in these situations. He made his own bed and now he has to lay in it.

I'm a fan of him inside the cage and I won't deny that and I'm fairly busy so can't debate much but, Fleek there's no question about that part! I mean what's the name of the guy were talking about? War Machine....

In August 2000, Koppenhaver briefly attended The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, before being expelled. War Machine has also had several scrapes with legal authorities. On September 2, 2007, he was found guilty of striking a Las Vegas man in the face and choking him unconscious during a parking lot scuffle.[3] In February 2008, he was sentenced to three years of probation and 30 days of community service, avoiding the possible felony charge and accompanying prison time.



War Machine was signed and then released by Bellator Fighting Championships. His MySpace blog cited disparaging comments about Barack Obama -- including his "hopes someone smokes that [expletive] ( Barack Obama) and every president to come" -- as the cause for his non-participation in their upcoming tournament.



On February 22, 2008, Koppenhaver's San Diego defense attorney arranged a lenient fine and probationary sentence for a prior assault which could have ended his fighting career, if charged as a felony.[23]

On 31 October 2009, Koppenhaver announced that he would pursue a career in pornographic films along with fighting mixed martial arts. War Machine, on the internet stated the following:

"So I said fuck it! I signed with LA Direct Models this week and today I did my first porn scene! (laugh out loud) I shot for Digital Playground with their girl Riley Steele, was fucking awesome! I was nervous as shit but I came through. I'm still gonna fight, just gonna do this too because fighting isn't quite enough money and you all know I ain't trying to work! In life I have come to learn that all I enjoy is eating, sleeping, fighting and fucking! Fuck it! I'm living the dream, getting PAID to fight and fuck! What more could I ask for?"[24]

On 28 November, War Machine was reported to what witnesses have said, "gone crazy" at porn actress Brooke Haven's birthday party. He attacked several people and ran off before the police came. Here is what he said about the situation on his Twitter.

"Fuck...last night was NOT good...lil' misunderstanding and then WM was back in effect and the bodies hit the floor. I'm fucked...Pretty sure my porn days are over. Prolly be going to jail too...when they find me...haha!"[25]

On December 1, Las Vegas Police Department issued a warrant out for his arrest.[26]

On February 28, 2010, Koppenhaver was arrested in Point Loma in San Diego, California after pushing a bar owner and destroying several glasses in the bar.[27] Witnesses said that Koppenhaver became agitated after a bartender asked for a second form of identification when Koppenhaver handed her his driver's license which used the name "War Machine" (since he had legally changed his name). Koppenhaver then became “irritated” and made a swiping motion with his hand over the bar, knocking over and shattering several bottles and glasses. The bartender said the glass hit various parts of her body, which caused some injuries. Before leaving the bar, Koppenhaver allegedly shoved another woman who was later identified as the bar's owner.

On March 31, 2010, he was again arrested in San Diego, California under suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a confrontation at a Pacific Beach bar.[28]

The incident allegedly occurred when Koppenhaver was involved in an altercation with several individuals at the Pacific Beach bar and the bar's bouncer attempted to separate them.[29] The bouncer testified in court that Koppenhaver then punched him in the face, giving him a split lip and several loose teeth. A bar security camera captured footage of Koppenhaver then proceeding outside the bar to fight the individuals before being coaxed by his friends to stop. Koppehaver then was seen breaking free and going back on the attack against the individuals. The bouncer at the bar testified that his conduct was "beyond aggressive ... crazy almost."[29]

It was reported that officers had to place a bag over his head to keep him from spitting at them. Koppenhaver responded by way of his Twitter account saying: "Why the spit bag? Fuck if I know!?? I never spit! lol...they just put it on to be dicks and/or disguise who I was...??
