So here at PMN we have War Machine Watch going on and rightfully so. This is bigger than the Lee Murray robbery incident trust us. Lee Murray was once described as “a scary son of a bitch” in and out of the ring. Well, so is War Machine. After seeing what he did to porn star Christy Mack even my stomach was queasy.
He’s still out there lurking, making Dog the Bounty Hunter look stupid after the TV star promised he was about to catch the fugitive on August 12th. War Machine is particularly elusive for a few very meaningful reasons.
1. Ties to more than the MMA community, he’s a chameleon.
Let’s face it, like it or not War Machine is a pseudo celebrity to MMA fans and a straight anti-hero. He’s also a porn actor and has friends there.
Imagine you are living a boring life and here comes the dude who is all over every MMA and some mainstream news sites asking for asylum. He promises you the straight scoop on what really happened. I guarantee you that someone lacking excitement welcomes him in. He’s a manipulative guy and has incredible influence on most people that befriend him.
War Machine obviously has ties to the porn industry and probably countless girlfriends he can bunk with whenever. Christy Mack stated that she was cheated on almost every night, but one night War Machine comes home and she’s with another dude – the fugitive snapped. We reported this from TMZ earlier:
Corey Thomas — the guy War Machine beat up before attacking Christy Mack — has the distinction of being on a reality show riddled with tales of violent crime — including murder.
Corey — who made a fortune in web design — was one of the stars of VH1′s “Megan Wants a Millionaire.” You may recall his co-star Ryan Jenkins hanged himself in 2009 … days after killing his wife, cutting her up, and stuffing her in a suitcase which he deposited in a dumpster.
Corey’s now got his own problems … a broken nose and 2 black eyes. War Machine allegedly also bit him on the face.
As bad off as he is … it pales in comparison to his porn star girlfriend Christy, who’s in the hospital with 18 broken bones and a ruptured liver.
War Machine is slipping through traps, in and out of houses, and staying out of sight thanks to a vast array of friends.
2. We’re covering the hell out of this story
So here’s the deal. Every time Dog farts it gets reported and War Machine gets notified by the friends mentioned above. He is one step ahead of the police and Dog to say the least. There’s a hitch, though. The FBI is going to get involved, but if there’s one thing I know about the FBI – it’s that they are already on it.
Still, the media posts every picture of Dog’s whereabouts like War Machine’s old gym, and the police are pretty much stating where they are looking. Come on man. Make it a little harder for him.
Need proof this story is getting a lot of attention? Here’s his past history of violence and look what’s on Wikipedia already at the bottom of this entry:
On September 2, 2007, he was found guilty of striking a Las Vegas man in the face and choking him unconscious during a parking lot scuffle. In February, 2008, he was sentenced to three years of probation and 30 days of community service, avoiding the possible felony charge and accompanying prison time.
On February 22, 2008, War Machine plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery, and was fined and sentenced to probation.
In August, 2010, War Machine was sentenced to one year in the county jail for a felony assault conviction stemming from a fight at a Point Loma bar earlier in the year, as well as an additional fight at a Pacific Beach bar. He was imprisoned in the San Diego’s George Bailey Detention Facility and served time in administrative segregation.
After going to jail, Machine maintained his Twitter account as well as a blog documenting his time in jail. In this blog, he stated that “The oppression of MEN is worse than oppression of Jews inNazi Germany, worse than the slavery of Blacks in early America… I’m not exaggerating either.”
On February 1, 2012, it was announced via Machine’s Twitter that he will be serving another year of jail time, due to preceding events. He was released on October 29, 2012.
**** On August 8, 2014, it was reported that Christy Mack and an associate were assaulted in her Las Vegas home. Mack was taken to the hospital where it was found that Mack suffered from 18 broken bones, a broken nose, missing teeth, a fractured rib and a ruptured liver. Mack claims that it was War Machine who carried out the attack.  Speaking of the attack she wrote: “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.” She continued: “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.” According to Mack, War Machine also tried to rape her
The Las Vegas Police have named War Machine as the “prime suspect” for the alleged assault.
3. He is just that freaking dangerous
Man oh man is this guy a loose cannon. Check out his eerie statement about killing Christy Mack on the MMA Hour back in 2013.
If you read the Wikipedia excerpt above you can see this guy is a violent, unstable person. He fits the psych profile of someone who has the capacity to kill someone else and the rebelliousness to kill himself when he’s done killing others. He even Tweeted about that a few years back, too!
“When I am ready to die I will kill many and then kill myself and I will tape it”
Enough said. He would violently beat and potentially kill anyone who wanted to turn him in or more likely if he thought they were going to.
NO ONE IS GOING TO WILLINGLY TURN THIS GUY IN OUT OF FEAR.
So let’s face it, War Machine may be at large a long time. The only ways he would turn himself in is if the thrill of the chase is gone, his alleged 3rd man who really did the Mack beating is caught, or he is put in a position to do what he said above or go peacefully.
The average person has no clue who this guy is unless they happen across an article about him so he has that going for him as well. He has a lot going for him in terms of escape, actually. We hope he is brought to justice soon for safety’s sake.
