Video: War Machines appears before Las Vegas judge for 32 counts of assault, faces life in prison

New, comments

Watch footage of War Machine appear in front of a Las Vegas judge to answer to 32 counts of assault against ex-girlfriend Christy Mack. War Machine faces a potential life sentence in prison.

John Koppenhaver, who viciously attacked ex-girlfriend and adult film star Christy Mack, has been brought in front of a Las Vegas judge and could face a potential life sentence in prison without parole.

It appears "War Machine" faces a total of 31 charges, many of which were added before the MMA fighter appeared in front of the judge on Tuesday. He was initially facing a maximum sentence of 32 years in prison but could now get life behind bars without parole after amended charges were added following a more stringent investigation.

Koppenhaver appeared in front of the judge with his attorney, who mentioned that the time behind bars has already begun to "take a toll" on his client.

"Very stressful," Koppenaver's attorney stated. "It is a very difficult situation for all parties involved."
