If you’re feeling good today, and want to keep that feeling going, maybe you shouldn’t read on. Maybe you should read and watch this. It’s funny.

However, this IS, sadly, news, and it happened in the world of sports, so…

Jon Koppenhaver, better known as War Machine in some MMA circles, is currently not in custody (a warrant has recently been issued and police are looking for him) for a brutal assault against his ex-girlfriend, porn star Christy Mack

Here’s a Tweeted photo, from Christy Mack, of her injuries:

Christy Mack then released this disturbing rundown of events and plea for his capture:

At around 2 am Friday morning, Jon Koppenhaver arrived unannounced to my home in Las Vegas, NV, after he broke up with me in May, he moved out of my house and back to San Diego. When he arrived, he found myself and one other fully clothed and unarmed in the house. Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face. I have no recollection of how many times I was hit, I just know my injuries that resulted from my beating.

My injuries include 18 broken bones around my eyes, my nose is broken in 2 places, I am missing teeth and several more are broken. I am unable to chew, or see out of my left eye. My speech is slurred from my swelling and lack of teeth. I have a fractured rib and severely ruptured liver from a kick to my side. My leg is so badly injured I have not been able to walk on my own. I also attained several lesions from a knife he got from my kitchen. He pushed the knife into me in some areas such as my hand, ear, and head. He also sawed much of my hair off with this dull knife. After some time, the knife broke off of the handle and continued to threaten me with the blade. I believed I was going to die. He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly.

He took my phone and cancelled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts. He told me he was going to rape me, but was disappointed in himself when he could not get hard. After another hit or two, he left me on the floor bleeding and shaking, holding my side from the pain of my rib. He left the room and went to the kitchen where I could hear him ruffling through my drawers. Assuming he was finding a sharper, more stable knife to end my life, I ran out my back door, shutting it behind me so the dogs didn’t run inside to tip him off. I hopped the fence to the golf course behind my house and ran to a neighboring house. Naked and afraid he would catch me, I kept running through the neighborhood knocking on doors. Finally, one answered and I was brought to the hospital and treated for my injuries.

I would like to thank everyone for their support through this rough time. I am healing fast and well, and I appreciate all of the prayers and visits I have received over the past few days. After many months of fear and pressure to keep this man happy, although I fear for my life, I feel that I can no longer put myself in this situation. The cheating by him nearly every day, and almost weekly abuse is now more than I can stand. There is a $10k reward for the capture of Jonathan Koppenhaver at this time. Please report any information to your local police.

Thank you.
-Christy Mack

Terrible stuff. War Machine has been released from his contract with Bellator, which cited a zero-tolerance policy towards domestic abuse in terminating the arrangement. He has also issued a stream of Tweets that serve as a pseudo-apology and pseudo-explanation. They’re pretty damning, even out of context.

Here they are:

@ChristyMack I just wanted to see your face when I surprised you with the ring …this is a nightmare. You’re in my thoughts.

This is just awful. Jesus.
