John Koppenhaver is a bigger dumbass than origonally suspected
Remember the guy from TUF who gave someone an upper decker, the got in the news for being involved in the beating of another fighter outside a gym. Then went off about how he wished we lived in some lawless wasteland so he could go around beating people that mocked his faggy hair. Remember that guy?
Well, he goes by the name 'War Machine' and has now legally changed his name to it. Lets let him explain in his own words why:

****. I just realized I misspelled 'originally' and that this should probably be in YMAS.

He should just change his gimmick to, you know, LA MACHINE.

I'm still wondering what war he was in...
(BTW I've met the guy. He's extremely insecure. And does more than his share of steroids)

TNA isn't too bad. From what little I've seen they do a lot more athletic stuff than the soap-opera hulk-smash that the WWE does these days.
I guess the UFC will now announce him as War "John Koppenhaver" MachineSurfing Facebook at work? Spread the good word by adding us on Facebook today! https://www.facebook.com/Bullshido

He still gets pwned by the Ohio National Guardsman that changed his name to Optimus Prime.

this guy is ridiculous. i loved watching him go into his whole "alpha male" bullshit then get choked out in the first round.

You know what - after thinking about it I will retract my statement. I will say that he openly admitted to using steroids in 2006.
Regardless the guy is a chode. He went into his whole "warrior" bullshit rhetoric with me. After that it has just been one comical story after another. He typifies the young insecure male raised by his mother desperately seeking respect while trying unsuccessfully to hide his low self opinion that we see all too often. I don't know if he was raised without a father figure but he sure came off as needing one.

Didn't he also cry on the show?
