Adult film star Christy Mack issued a statement from her hospital bed detailing what she says happened when mixed martial arts fighter War Machine allegedly attacked her earlier this week. Mack also tweeted photos showing the extensive injuries she’s suffered.
The attack, which took place early Friday morning, involved Christy Mack and an unnamed second person with the prime suspect being Jon Koppenhaver, known as War Machine in MMA fighting circles. Police have been looking for Koppenhaver since the attack was reported and Mack was hospitalized. So far, the MMA fighter has eluded police. Now, more details were given as Christy issued an official statement and photographs of her injuries.
The statement, published in full on Yahoo Sports and other outlets, appeared first on Christy Mack’s Twitter account, and details, in Christy Mack’s own words, the horrific and brutal torture she underwent. She says that she and War Machine had broken up in May, and he’d moved back to San Diego from Las Vegas where Christy Mack lives and the attack occurred.
She says that the MMA fighter arrived at her house unannounced and found Mack and another unnamed person at the home – both fully clothed and unarmed. Without a word, she says, Koppenhaver attacked the other person brutally and threw her friend out of the house before turning on her.

Christy Mack says that the ex-boyfriend then forced her to undress and shower in front of him, and then proceeded to beat her about her face. He also used a kitchen knife to torture her, shave some of her hair, and broke the knife off while using it on her, Mack says.
Christy sustained injuries that include 18 broken bones around her eyes, two breaks to her nose, lost and broken teeth, a fractured rib, and severely ruptured liver to go with a badly injured leg and many lesions. Christy Mack says she was convinced she was going to die by War Machine’s hands that night.
After the beating, she continues, she says her attacker cancelled her plans for the week so no one would become suspicious of her missing and attempted to rape her, but was unable to achieve an erection. She says he then went into her kitchen, presumably, she believes, to get a sharper knife to kill her with, and she used the opportunity to stumble out the back door and to a neighbor’s house where she called police.
Christy Mack says that this is not the first time War Machine had beaten her, but it was never this bad, and the beatings were a part of the reason she ended their relationship back in May. MMA Fighting reports that War Machine has served jail time for assault in the past.
Finally, Christy Mack has announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Jonathan Koppenhaver, as reported by TMZ.
With the statement, Christy Mack released several photos to her Twitter account showing the horrific injuries she’s undergone (embedded above). The graphic photos are a stark contrast to Christy Mack’s famous beauty as you can see.
