Former MMA fighter War Machine pleaded not guilty to 32 felony counts in a Las Vegas courtroom on Wednesday, including two counts of attempted murder. If convicted, he could face life in prison without the possibility for parole.

War Machine is accused of nearly beating his ex-girlfriend, adult film star Christy Mack, to death in her home on August 8. He was named as Jon Koppenhaver Рhis birth name Рin court. The 32-year-old legally changed his name to War Machine in 2008.

Prosecutors have charged him with a glut of crimes, including battery, strangulation, coercion, kidnapping, sexual assault, burglary and the two attempted murder counts. Justice of the Peace Melanie Tobiasson denied bail at Wednesday’s hearing.

The story made national headlines in early August, as Koppenhaver showed up at Mack’s house and apparently found her there with Corey Thomas, a friend and former reality show contestant.

Mack later recounted her side of the story and released gruesome pictures of her condition following the assault. She also claimed that he had assaulted her multiple times throughout their relationship.

Koppenhaver went on the run from police after the assault and was captured a week later in California following a nationwide manhunt.

Koppenhaver’s next hearing will be on October 17.

  9. Nobody will kill him for beating up a women.If he raped a child then the chances of him getting murdered in prison would be high.

  10. If he is guilty of committing these crimes he should be put away for life in a hell hole where he belongs, so he can’t hurt another woman, or anyone else for that matter. there is no place in the civilized world where crimes such as these should be tolerated.
