The War Machine/Christy Mack story has taken many unpleasant and sometimes outrageous twists and turns, and has become a bit of a media circus, as often happens when horrific stories cross over major media outlets. Everyone from BBC to Nancy Grace has shown a keen interest in this story, and it just keeps getting more complex.
If you didn't already know, television reality star, Dog the Bounty Hunter and his crew have taken up the challenge of finding MMA's most wanted man, War Machine (Jon Koppenhaver). Machine is wanted as the prime suspect in the brutal beating of his ex-girlfriend, Christy Mack.
In a very public, tactical move, Leland Chapman, son of Duane "Dog" Chapman, has released a tweet to try and use Koppenhaver's well-known jealousy to draw him out.
@ChristyMack hey since your ex-boyfriend @WarMachine170 will be in jail soon we should hangout sometime #MatchMadeInHeaven— Leland Chapman (@LelandBChapman) August 13, 2014
Jumping in the fray with tweets of his own, "Dog" is also trying to play up on War Machine's insecurities.
#CMTDogAndBeth #war machine in front if your house 1on1 let's do it !! ! Winner takes ALL !!— Duane Dog Chapman (@DogBountyHunter) August 13, 2014
#CMTDogAndBeth ok #war machine you want a real fight this time not a girl the biggest match of your career in the street— Duane Dog Chapman (@DogBountyHunter) August 13, 2014
We'll just have to wait and see if these tweets help lure Koppenhaver out long enough to be tracked and captured. As always, Bloody Elbow will keep our readers up to date on this story as we receive more information.
