Former porn star, Christy Mack, 26, who suffered a horrific Beating at the hands of her ex-boyfriend, former MMA fighter, Jonathan Koppenhaver aka "War Machine," has opened up about the horrific domestic violence she suffered in his hands.
“I was in extreme, excruciating physical pain,” she said about the 2014 incident.
She said that her relationship with the fighter was “very passionate” and “very tumultuous,” as well as “very abusive.”
It all started when War Machine came to her Las Vegas home unannounced one night and became enraged when he found her in bed with another man, businessman Corey Thomas.
“He came in and jumped on top of me and started beating me in the face,” Thomas recalled. “I'm down on all fours, he's trying to choke me. I’m bleeding from my face, I can't see.”
“While he was beating my friend, I made a 911 call,” she said.
She said War Machine then turned his attention back on her, and unleashed two hours of merciless terror on her.
“This was a whole new level I had never experienced," she said. "He punched my teeth out, he broke my nose, my complete eye socket was fractured,” she said. “I could hear him going through the drawers downstairs and finding knives. I knew this was my chance, this was my only chance. If I do not leave now, I will die.”
She said she ran out of the back door of her house and jumped over the fence. She was naked and covered in blood, and went door-to-door until someone around the block answered and called for help.
“I need police or medical. There is a lady in front of my door beaten up," the neighbor told a 911 dispatcher. "I don't know who beat her up."
After a two-week trial in March 2017, during which Mack tearfully relived the ordeal, her ex boyfriend, War Machine, was convicted of beating and sexually assaulting her, as well as beating Corey Thomas.
He was sentenced to 36-years to life.
“I do feel quite a bit safer with him being away for that amount of time,” she admitted.
Mack says she is recovering well, and is now devoting herself to helping other victims of domestic and dating violence.
“I do feel that justice has been served and I hope that so many more people can [also],” Mack said.
