Suffering from severe broken bones, missing teeth, a fractured rib and a ruptured liver is anything but funny. But according to reports, MMA fighter War Machine was caught laughing during his preliminary hearing with his ex-girlfriend, Christy Mack, who he allegedly assaulted and raped in August.
“I am unable to chew, or see out of my left eye. My speech [sic] is slurred from my swelling and lack of teeth," Mack wrote in a heart-wrenching tweet following the attack. “He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face. I have no recollection of how many times I was hit, I just know my injuries that resulted from my beating."

“I’m not a bad guy," the fighter responded on Twitter. "I went to surprise my gf, help her set up her show and to give her an engagement ring an ended up fighting for my life. The cops will never give me fair play, never believe me. Still deciding what to do but at the end of the day it’s all just heartbreaking. I only wish that man hadn’t been there and that Christy and I would be happily engaged! I don’t know [why] I’m so cursed. One day truth will come out.”
War Machine was spotted laughing when Christy simply responded "yes" after being asked if sexual violence occurred between the two. A prosecutor made sure court records noted he was "laughing and shaking his head." Christy struggled to hold back tears while on the witness stand.
