More details are emerging in the ongoing story of War Machine Jon Koppenhaver's alleged assault of former girlfriend Christy Mack. Earlier, Mack provided her account of the incident, noting that Koppenhaver also attacked an unidentified friend of Mack's at the time.

The identity of that friend has now been confirmed as Corey Thomas. Thomas is a reality TV contestant who appeared on the VH1 show "Megan Wants a Millionaire" in 2009. Reports of Thomas's injuries from the incident have him as suffering a broken nose and two black eyes. He is also alleged to have been bitten by Koppenhaver.

"Megan Wants a Millionaire" is already a controversial show as contestant Ryan Jenkins committed suicide in 2009 after being wanted for questioning in the death of his wife.
