Warning: Story contains some graphic images
Alexis Monroe – Friend of Christy Mack: “Her face is very swollen, her whole eye closed shut.”
With the bones around her eyes shattered, her nose broken, and several teeth missing, Christy Mack tweeted photos from her hospital bed, claiming her ex-boyfriend MMA star Jon "War Machine" Koppenahver is responsible for the abuse.
In a statement today, Mack claims she was at home with a friend, when Koppenhaver, whom she had broken up with months prior, showed up unexpectedly at her Las Vegas home.
Mack writes: "Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face.”
Alexis Monroe: “He could snap her in two in two seconds, his biceps are the same size as her legs.”
Fellow adult performer Alexis Monroe is a close friend of Mack’s and one of the few people to speak with her since the attack.
Alexis Monroe: “He had smacked her before but it had never been something so aggressive, so I think she was really taken back by his actions.”
Police confirm they are searching for Koppenhaver to arrest him on multiple charges of assault and battery. But being a wanted fugitive hasn't stopped war machine from tweeting about the incident, posting: “I'm not a bad guy, I went to surprise my gf, help her set up her show and to give her an engagement ring and ended up fighting for my life. The cops will never give me fair play, never believe me. Still deciding what to do but at the end of the day it's all just heart breaking.”
