War Machine: 'If Dog the Bounty Hunter came to get me I'd beat his ass!'

Four years ago Jon "War Machine" Koppenhaver tweeted what was presumably an idle threat against Duane Chapman aka Dog the Bounty Hunter. Now the Dog is on the hunt for War Machine.

No, War Machine didn't invent a time machine, nor does he have psychic future predicting abilities, but apparently the convicted felon and current fugitive from justice had a feeling four-and-a-half years ago that this day would come and he'd find himself in the cross-hairs of America's most famous bounty hunter, Duane "Dog" Chapman.

Yes, earlier today Chapman announced that he was on the hunt for the former Jon Koppenhaver, a former UFC and Bellator fighter, who's wanted on 7 warrants by the Las Vegas police in a horrific assault against his ex, Christy Mack.

Someone remembered this tweet from four years ago and unearthed it and sent it along:

The Dog has been warned, but I doubt he's especially worried. He does, after all, hunt humans for a living and he's not looking to have a fair fight. Something also tells me that War Machine is far from the smartest or most dangerous criminal Dog has brought to heel.

Here's a screen shot of the tweet, just in case:


And just in case Dog needs more incentive, Corey Harrison of Pawn Stars has just doubled the $10,000 reward for the capture of Koppenhaver.
