'War Machine' = 36 to life

In 2017 Former Bellator and UFC veteran War Machine (Jonathan Koppenhaver) was found guilty on 29 of the 34 charges he faced – most notably of sexual assault, battery and kidnapping.
He received a life sentence with the possibility of parole after 36 years. Koppenhaver's 2014 attack on porn star Christy Mack (Christine Mackinday) and Corey Thomas left Mack with a broken nose, a fractured orbital, a broken rib, a lacerated liver and extensive bruising. Mackinday suffered 18 broken bones and lost many of her teeth Koppenhaver will be 71 before he can have his first parole hearing.
Koppenhaver assaulted Thomas with such severity that Mack believed the former fighter was going to kill him. Mack also claimed that the ex-fighter threatened to send his Hells Angels friends after her if he ended up in jail.
