Recently released Bellator fighter War Machine (aka Jon Koppenhaver) is being sent back to Nevada to face charges over the alleged beating of his former girlfriend, adult entertainment star Christy Mack.
The 32-year old former veteran of The Ultimate Fighter, who was arrested last Friday in Ventura, California after running from police on felony fugitive charges, signed his extradition papers during a brief hearing in Ventura County last Tuesday, and is expected to return soon to Nevada, where the alleged incident took place.
Brandon Sua, recently issued a statement to Los Angeles television station KTLA on War Machine’s behalf, noting that his client is a “good guy.”
“The hardest thing for my client is seeing the responses from the media, the public,” said Sua. “There’s been a lot of statements on one side. The media has done a good job of painting my client as a monster, but my client is not a monster,” Sua noted. “He is a good guy.”
