War Machine found guilty on 29 charges in Christy Mack case

War Machine guilty of attack on porn actress Christy Mack

Koppenhaver shook his head a little as he heard "guilty" to the two most serious counts - kidnapping and sexual assault with a weapon.

War Machine whose birth name is Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver sentencing is set for June 5 at 8:30 a.m.

In an unusual move, Koppenhaver's attorney changed his client's plea last Thursday to concede guilt on eight domestic battery charges.

The incident occurred in 2014 when War Machine broke into his ex-girlfriend Christy Mackinday's house and assaulted her and her friend Corey Thomas.

As the verdict was read, War Machine was seen shaking his head in the courtroom. Each could get him up to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The Associated Press doesn't usually identify victims of alleged sexual assault, but Mack gave permission to use her name.

Mackinday, a former adult film star known as Christy Mack, testified over two days during the trial about a history of abuse suffered at War Machine's hands that eventually ended with the brutal assault almost three years ago.

Former MMA fighter War Machine dodged conviction for the attempted murder of his ex-gf, Christy Mack - but was nailed on 29 other charges, including sexual assault and battery.

A court official says the jury resumed work Monday morning. The beating stopped, he said, when he asked Koppenhaver if his "end game" was going to be to kill him or let him go.

"He nearly beat her to death and he threw a dog blanket on her as she was convulsing from a lacerated liver".

Koppenhaver was arrested a week later in the Los Angeles suburb of Simi Valley, and was returned to Nevada.

Koppenhaver, 35, made his UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 6 Finale, where he won KO and Fight of the Night honors. His final fight was in 2013.
