The former mixed martial arts fighter who legally changed his name to War Machine was found guilty of 29 out of 34 charges against him that stemmed from an attack on his porn star ex-girlfriend and ta man he found with her in her bedroom, after a trial this past March. The man born Jonathan Koppenhaver beat up Corey Thomas, then turned his attention to Christine Mackinday (known in adult film circles as Christy Mack), beating her and sexually assaulting her.

War Machine was found guilty of most of the charges against him, including kidnapping and sexual assault, but the jury was hung on attempted murder charges. Still, he faces up to life in prison for his crimes. He will learn his sentence at the end of the hearing, taking place at the Las Vegas Regional Justice Center.
