Joe Rogan sits down with colorful MMA fighter and former porn actor War Machine (aka Jon Koppenhaver) on this episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. The guys discuss War Machine’s dysfunctional family life as a youngster and how a physical altercation with his step-father eventually led to him finding his way into MMA — and much much more.
I remember when War Machine (then it was Mr. Jon Koppenhaver) was the “whore machine”. I recall a conversation we had in 2009 when I asked him what he was into when he wasn’t training or fighting. He said, “Really man, all my free time I spend trying to terrorize chicks. I have like a super one track mind; all I wanna do is like train and fight and terrorize chicks. Really I’m the ‘whore machine’.”
No one needs to tell Jon Koppenhaver what it means to hit rock bottom. After being raised by a substance-abusing mother and spending over a year in state prison, “War Machine” has seen it all. Only 29 years old and coming off a dominating TKO victory over former Bellator and UFC fighter Roger Huerta, the talented welterweight is ready to resurrect his MMA career by joining Bellator Fighting Championships.
Tune in to Fist-ta-Cuff Radio Sunday night as we welcome veteran commentator Mauro Ranallo, Pride and UFC vet Gilbert Yvel, Tachi Palace champ Eddie Yagin and War Machine.
War Machine (Jon Koppenhaver) writes blog number three from jail. In this episode of “Fighters Behind Bars,” our star learns how to fish and make jail moonshine. He also befriends a Muslim gangster who’s in jail for murder.
