Three years later, the details of War Machine’s brutal assault of Christy Mack and Corey Thomas remain no less horrific.
War Machine, a three-time Bellator veteran and cast member of “The Ultimate Fighter 6,” is currently serving a life sentence in Nevada for the August 2014 incident, which left Mack with broken teeth, a fractured rib and a severely ruptured liver. After a lengthy recovery process, Mack played an integral role in assisting prosecutors earn a conviction in War Machine’s jury trial, and she has been vocal about the danger she believes the fighter still presents.
However, Mack wasn’t the only victim that night.
For the first time, Corey Thomas is speaking out on his role in the infamous evening, including why he left the scene of the attack without seeking help despite the ongoing nature of the assault.
“In the moment, you think to yourself, … ‘Why am I getting my ass kicked by this guy, and she’s telling him that she loves him?’” Thomas told “Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen.” “I figured to myself, … ‘I’m in the wrong bed at the wrong time with the wrong girl. … You crazy kids can figure this thing out for yourselves.’ I gathered my stuff and left.”
