The beating by former lover and MMA fighter Jonathan Koppenhaver (War Machine) left on his then girlfriend Christy Mack earlier this month requires her to have facial reconstruction. Mack sustained multiple broken bones in her face during the attack, allegedly having 18 bones broken in her face.
Mack also suffered a broken nose, broken teeth, fractured ribs, a ruptured kidney and multiple bruises in the attack; allegedly being beaten to death within an inch of her life by War Machine. War Machine — who had his name legally changed — says he is innocent of the charges.
In a report by TMZ, a plastic surgeon named Dr. Harrison H. Lee has reportedly contacted Christy Mack and volunteered to perform free facial reconstructive work. The doctor feels a “special responsibility” because he has mixed martial arts training; Lee does not believe in abusing MMA training. It is unknown whether Mack has accepted his kind offer.
According to Mack, War Machine cut of her hair with a kitchen knife, poked her with the knife in the ear, hand, and head, and threatened her with the blade when the knife handle broke off.
“He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly. He took my phone and canceled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts. He told he was going to rape me, but was disappointed in himself when he could not get hard.”
Mack tweeted pictures of herself after the beating, along with the details of the incident.
After a manhunt in California, War Machine was arrested. He Tweeted online that he was “fighting for (his) life” at Mack’s house, not the other way around.

Once Mack has been released from the hospital and recovers from the brutal attack on her life, she said she plans to reinsert herself back into the world of making porn videos again.
“She has a long road ahead of her to heal but she knows that when she is 100 percent healthy, she will return to porn. With all the news on her and this situation, she knows that people will be more interested in her work and she will take advantage of that and get some great pay days out if it.”
Originally Mack said that she had planned to focus on other endeavors such as her online store, posters, paid public appearances and adult toys. In an interview with Inked Magazine.
