According to several news sources, former Bellator and UFC fighter Jon Koppenhaver (known as War Machine) attempted to take his own life in his Las Vegas jail cell on Tuesday.
According to the reports, War Machine was found lying on the floor of his jail cell with his feet elevated on his bunk bed. A piece of linen was tied to the leg of the bed on one end and around his neck on the other.
The fighter was initially discovered by a jail guard and remained unresponsive until the guard cut the sheet. Koppenhaver has now been placed on suicide watch after a suicide note was also discovered.
War Machine faces a wide variety of charges, including attempted murder, resulting from an August incident where his then-girlfriend, Christy Mack, and her friend, Corey Thomas, were allegedly viciously beaten by Koppenhaver.
