The Christy Mack beating has taken a turn as the prime suspect, former boyfriend and MMA fighter War Machine, denies that he attacked his adult film star girlfriend and said in fact it was her who attacked him.
The former Bellator and UFC welterweight fighter, formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver, is wanted for the beating for former girlfriend Christy Mack. Authorities say that War Machine surprised Mack in her home, beating a companion before assaulting her. She was eventually able to escape and alert police, though War Machine fled and is still on the run.
But the MMA fighter has not been entirely silent. He took to Twitter to give his account, saying it was actually him who was attacked.
I’m not a bad guy, I went to surprise my gf, help her set up her show and to give her an engagement ring and ended up fighting for my life.

But Christy Mack presents a much different story. The popular porn star posted a long account of the attack, saying that he showed up unannounced and found her in her home with a friend.
Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him then dragged me out and beat my face. I have no recollection of how many times i was hit. I just know the injuries that resulted from my beating. My injuries include 18 broken bones around my eyes, my nose is broken in 2 places. I am missing teeth and several more are broken. I am unable to chew, or see out of my left eye. My speech is slurred from my swelling and lack of teeth. I have a fractured rib and severely ruptured liver from a kick to my side. My leg is so badly injured, I have not been able to walk on my own. I also attained several lesions from a knife he got from my kitchen. He pushed the knife into me in some areas including my hand, ear and head. He also sawed much of my hair off with his dull knife.
Along with the account, the adult film star also posted pictures of her injuries, which included a face almost entirely swollen and extensive bruising on her legs.
Christy Mack also addressed rumors that War Machine found her in bed with another MMA fighter, saying that was not true.
