"War Machine" Busted for Fighting at Gay Club

2/10/2009 2:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jon KoppenhaverWith a name like War Machine, what do you expect to happen?

Former "Ultimate Fighter" badass Jon Koppenhaver, who goes by the aforementioned MMA nickname, was picked up by Las Vegas PD for misdemeanor battery Saturday morning after allegedly getting into a tussle at Krave Nightclub -- a place described by one of their reps as "gay ... but very straight-friendly."

Cops tell TMZ security at Krave was escorting War Machine out of the club after a little brouhaha -- when he allegedly turned on security and starting punching them. Security made a citizens arrest until Las Vegas PD could show up.

He's just losing it! He was actually already dropped a few months ago, in the days following fellow UFC fighter Evan Tanner's death. Then, he was dropped from the Bellator Fighting Championship before he ever fought for them once. He's lost everything....and since he's obviously never going to be anything but a fighter, I don't know where he'll go from here.

Spelling "bona fide" wrong when attempting to sound intelligent is also a sign of a bona fide idiot.

Funny that TMZ didn't mention that War Machine was actually working at the club as security... sounds a bit defamatory without that little detail.

Oh my!!! I... this is... umm... I can say that I'm a avid fan of the Ultimate Fighter Show and let's just say that I'm... conflicted. I mean we all know that a few fighters may have a bit more "sugar" in their blood, but to actually be caught at a same sex "entertainment" establishment is umm... What the F**K were you thinking!!! I'm sorry but the UFC is for WARRIORS!!! And a WARRIOR to me... is a REAL MAN!!

Just cuz you go to a gay club doesn't mean your gay!! All you haters are just a joke, obviously you don't know him!!! He's obviously secure with his sexuality to be in a gay club. War machine is the definition of a alpha male!!
