Bad news people, Bellator fighter War Machine is heading back to jail again barely six months after he got out from his last stint behind bars.
He revealed the news yesterday via his Twitter account, and it turns out it’s not due to anything he’s done since he got out, but rather problems in his past coming back to haunt him.
“Seems my year in jail wasnt enough. Just got sentenced to another year in Vegas for some old bull****. Nevermind Im rehabilitated. Nevermind Ive been out for over 6 months now and doing great and am finally back on my feet. Nevermind all my students that will miss me. Do another year and rot n waste time. Make no money, pay no taxes. Whatever, I just hope my boy @bensaundersMMA wins @BellatorMMA tournament.”
Seems like a tough break if that’s how it went down and it means that he’s now struck off Bellator’s upcoming welterweight tournament this year which looked to be his chance to get climb back into the MMA spotlight in a big way.
War Machine has only fought once since serving his initial sentence, picking up a notable win over another former UFC fighter Roger Huerta which showed he still had what it takes to make a career in the sport.
We wish him all the best for his next stint on the inside, and hope he’ll have the opportunity to write more of his thoroughly entertaining blog entries while he’s incarcerated.
