ORIGINAL STORY:

TMZ is reporting that former UFC and Bellator fighter Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver tried to commit suicide in jail this week. The report notes that War Machine’s attempt was foiled by a corrections officer.

At around 9:30am, an officer was walking by War Machine’s cell in Clark County Jail when he saw the former MMA fighter with his feet up on the bunk bed. When the officer tried to call his name, he was reportedly unresponsive.

The report claims that the officer then entered War Machine’s cell, where he found that he had a piece of linen around his neck that was tied to the leg of his bed. His face was said to be purple as a result.

The officer then cut the linen from around his neck and his breathing became less strained.

War Machine is reportedly in medical isolation at this point and is on suicide watch.

Additionally, officers reportedly found what appeared to be a suicide note in the cell.
