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.
