War Machine faces life in prison without parole.

MMA fighter Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver, better known as War Machine, was convicted of 29 felonies last night for kidnapping, beating and sexually assaulting his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack over several months back in 2014.

Additionally, War Machine was convicted of attacks on Mack's male friend, Corey Thomas.

According to ESPN

"Mack, 24, spent eight hours on the witness stand, crying as she said she was beaten and raped by Koppenhaver several times in the months before the August 2014 attack on her and Thomas."

"Thomas testified that he suffered a broken nose, dislocated shoulder, scrapes, bruises and bite marks. The beating stopped, he said, when he asked Koppenhaver if his "end game" was going to be to kill him or let him go."

"Mack testified that Koppenhaver attacked her after Thomas left. The jury saw photos of Mack with a broken nose, missing teeth, fractured eye socket and leg injuries. She also suffered a lacerated liver."

The jurors were deadlocked on two attempted-murder counts, but he still faces life in prison without the possibility of parole for kidnapping and sexual assault with a weapon.

War Machine, who has been serving a 1-4 year sentence for violating probation on a 2009 conviction for attempted battery involving a 21-year old woman, will be sentenced on June 5th.
