War Machine 'I Hate The Man I Used To Be' … Apologizes to Ex-GF

Ex-MMA star War Machine insists he’s no longer the woman-beating maniac he used to be — he’s found Jesus and changed his life … and he’s begging his ex-GF for forgiveness.
War Machine’s story made national headlines — he was a super talented UFC fighter who lost it all in 2014 when he viciously attacked his then-girlfriend, Christy Mack, when he caught her with another man.
Mack’s injuries were horrific — 18 broken bones, broken eye socket, broken nose and a lacerated liver. The other victim, Corey Thomas, was choked out and bitten before escaping.
Now, the imprisoned fighter — real name Jon Koppenhaver — is speaking for the first time from behind bars as part of a documentary by Jon Bravo … and he’s expressing serious remorse.
“There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t regret that, and I hate it,” he says.
“Nobody hates me as much as I hate the man that I used to be.”
Machine says he initially blamed Christy for the incident because she was cheating on him — but has now realized none of it was her fault … he was the bad guy, period.
“From the bottom of my heart, I apologize to Christy. I’m sorry, Christy.”
The full interview with War Machine will be released on YouTube this Wednesday.
