Live stream of War Machine's sentencing following Christy Mack assault conviction

Former MMA fighter War Machine sentenced to life for kidnapping

In March, War Machine was convicted of sexual assault, coercion, battery by strangulation, kidnapping and other charges, stemming from an incident involving his ex-girlfriend, former porn star Christy Mack, and her male companion, Corey Thomas. Mack's emotional and raw testimony was a big reason behind his conviction, later revealing on HBO's "Real Sports" that she "felt like she was going to die" during the attack.

"I don't know if my life will feel complete in 12 years or 30 years and neither do you, but I do know when he gets out he will kill me", said Mack.

Mack suffered a lacerated liver, a broken nose, two lost teeth and a fractured rib. Cadish said she wished Koppenhaver had gotten needed help as a child, but still had to face the consequences of his actions as a grown man. She also claims that he attempted to rape her.

One day, when enough time has passed, and when your wounds are fully healed, I hope that you will write to me, or, perhaps, even visit me, so that I can apologize completely, and so that I can tell you about all that I have found in regard to god. "I was a very, very lost, very empty person", Koppenhaver added in his statement. I've hated the way that I think.




Defense attorney Jay Leiderman focused on Koppenhaver's childhood, saying the former fighter had witnessed his mother get repeatedly abused by his stepfather.

Koppenhaver had turned down a pair of plea deals that might have resulted in shorter prison terms, choosing instead to take the case to trial. That means the man will spend his entire life in prison, only to be released when he turns 71-years-old.

Although Jonathan may have realized what he did was wrong, the damage done to his ex-girlfriend was huge, and the adult film actress even had to undergo facial reconstruction surgery after Koppenhaver viciously assaulted her.
