Too TUF for da streets

Bad news for those of you who were won over by the heart and spunk of TUF6 contestant Jon Koppenhaver:

Recent contestant on season six of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver, was hauled in today before a California Superior Court Judge on charges that he allegedly choked a man unconscious and punched him in the grill on September 2, according to the San Diego Tribune.

The victim in the case claims that he did not see who broke his face in the confrontation. Furthermore, an independent witness at the scene of the crime testified that Koppenhaver was involved in the incident but was not the one responsible for the damage.

“War Machine” faces a maximum of seven years in the clink if the case goes to trial and he is convicted.
Now many of you probably think that since Jon wasn’t the one beating the unconscious bastard, he’s gonna get off easy. While I don’t doubt the one who actually did the punching will get a worse sentence, the law’s pretty clear on one thing: if you’re directly involved in a situation like this and you don’t try to stop things when they escalate, you’re held responsible for what goes on. No, that’s not some fucked up branch of the Good Samaritan law … we’re talking about Jon being a part of the gang that participated in the beating of this guy.

Jon Koppenhaver’s not the only TUF alumni who’s going to or has been in jail … TUF5’s Rob Emerson also served time this year for a bar assault, and spent time in the poke back in 2000 for a series of assaults with a pack of rich ‘frat’ kids. You can go check out a news story with all the details here. Rob Emerson is the scared kid in the suit near the end of the video.

    The story of Rob Emerson is old. He is not currently serving. Changes to my original post have been made.

    Rob Emerson frat gang story is old. Rob Emerson recent incarceration for a seperate incident = recent

  • Accomando

    That video is hysterical, what a bunch of pussies. Lords of Gayness is what they should have been called. Emerson, agh, ha, ha, they showed him in court, 9 months in jail, what a loser.

  • Dru Down

    Mmm, I love War Machine’s spunk. It really won me over.

  • Accomando

    “..I cried during titanic, how many guys cry during titanic?…”

    Real tough “gang” Emerson had going there. I recognise the video is old, but thanks for posting it linker, great laughs.

    Und1sputed gym is pretty close to my house……….. I was suprised to learn that War Mac-Hine trains there………..

    side note………. what a punk-ass he is…………. on his official profile, it says “What is your favorite technique? Choke you out and then slap you in the
    face…haha!..inside joke =) ……………. obviously an allusion to this event………

    what a cock-sucker……….. I love having fighters to root against, it makes a fight so much more interesting

    Matt Hughes, Mike Kyle, Koppenhaver…….. the list keeps growing

    I hope that fucking clown Emerson gets shanked and then gang-raped in prison.

    War is the man! Hope he doesnt get convicted, he has too much potential to become good. He has already built a huge fan fare, i am one of them! Reguardless what happens, he is going to be a rock star. Though in jail, being a rock star means having first dibs on the new asses that comes in…. Awww, rock star in prison= making them drop the soap and creating male ass groupies.

    PS: War is too good for that, he needs real ass, not gay shit, lets go War, you wont get convicted! If you do, say hi to Tiny for me, you know the typical big black guy in prison who is like 7 foot tall and built like a jackle.

  • Xavier

    Hopefully he eats the full seven year term. That UFC profile quote is disgusting in light of this. What a representation for the sport.

  • frickshun

    Did anyone notice Dru Down said “I love War Machine’s spunk” (all over my tits)?

  • matt(tapout name shitstain)

    Whatever you do, do not, I repeat DO NOT make War Machine fight one of his friends. He says that fucking sucks.

  • Jersey Tomato

    Looks like War Machine is about to get a new handle…Love Machine. I wonder what hijinks he will unveil once he gets to the Big House. An Upper-Decker, anyone???

  • kentyman

    Am I the only one who calls it the Top Shelf instead of the Upper Decker?
