War Machine begs abused girlfriend for forgiveness
NEW YORK: Almost 18 months after being convicted of sexually assaulting and kidnapping his former porn star girlfriend, “War Machine” wants forgiveness from Christy Mack.
The former mixed martial arts standout (pictured), who legally changed his name from Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver during his MMA career, is speaking out ahead of an upcoming documentary.
“There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t regret that, and I hate it,” he said. “Nobody hates me as much as I hate the man that I used to be. “From the bottom of my heart, I apologise to Christy. I’m sorry, Christy.” War Machine, 36, was sentenced in June 2017 to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 36 years for brutally attacking his former girlfriend, Christine Mackinday – better known by her former porn name, Christy Mack – and her male companion after finding them in bed in her Las Vegas home.
