The former mixed martial arts fighter known as War Machine was sentenced to 36 years to life in prison for kidnapping, beating and sexually assaulting his porn actress ex-girlfriend and attacking her male friend at her Las Vegas home in 2014. Jonathan Koppenhaver, 35, offered an apology full of self-loathing on Monday and said he’d tried to kill himself, but that he has turned to religion while behind bars. He’ll be 71 before he’s eligible for parole in the attacks on Christy Mack and Corey Thomas. Defense attorney Jay Leiderman says Koppenhaver will appeal.
