“Right now, if we went to prison, you would see the real Jon Koppenhaver,” his friend and former strength and conditioning coach Brad Dryer told Bleacher Report.
, who changed his name from Jon Koppenhaver in 2008, faces the biggest fight of his life.But this battle will take place outside the cage in a Las Vegas courtroom next summer—and War Machine’s biggest opponent may very well be himself.The 33-year-old ex-Bellator fighter goes on trial in July 2016—the new date was set this week—for the alleged two-hour brutal beating of his former porn star ex-girlfriend, Christy Mack, and her former boyfriend, Corey Thomas.War Machine is charged with 34 felonies, including attempted murder and sexual assault, for the alleged attack inside Mack's home on August 8, 2014.If that doesn't have R-E-V-E-N-G-E written all over it, then I don't know what does. War Machine, who tried to commit suicide in October 2014 while awaiting trial, has also been citing Bible verses on Twitter.The caged former MMA fighter, who helped create Alpha Male T-Shirts and once tweeted about raping Mack, has suddenly found God.
Some might consider War Machine’s well-timed religious tweets to be an attempt to gain leniency from a jury that will decide his fate.
But one of his friends said he’s actually a changed man.
He pleaded not guilty but faces a maximum sentence of life in prison without parole if he’s convicted.
War Machine’s public relations manager, Amanda Earley, told Bleacher Report that he wouldn’t be doing any interviews "due to potential interference with his impending trial." But War Machine has provided his personal rants and insights on Twitter in what’s become a self-produced reality show.
Earley said that War Machine writes letters longhand from prison and then mails them to an anonymous friend who posts them on the ex-fighter’s Twitter account.
In one recent tweet on June 11, War Machine admitted wrongdoing: What I did was bad enough, it’ll send me to prison for long enough, why must they punish me for stuff I didn’t do on top of it all, that’s "justice"? I’m only going to be found guilty of the stuff that I really did, the stuff that I would confess to and sign a deal for right now. I was ‘raping’ my porn star girlfriend during our relationship and she never reported it, still wanted to marry me, and only made accusations AFTER I beat her and her lover?
