War Machine Set For A Year In Jail After Bar Brawl Caught On Tape

Well it looks like War Machine finally did it. After a number of brushes with the law over the past few years the former Ultimate Fighter prospect’s antics have finally caught up with him and he is set to do time for a brawl he was involved with in a bar earlier this year.

The fighter posted the details on his own twitter account earlier today.

“Weak! Looks like Ill be doing a year in San Diego County jail. Prolly gonna go in about 2 weeks..ugh. Gonna be SO boring! No delicious food, no training, no wifee, no friends. Whatever tho when I get out my partners and I will be opening our sick gym in Austin Texas and Ill be righ back to fighting. Jail is DUMB. All it does is press the PAUSE button on your life. What’s it supposed to teach you? Anyway, who knows some bad ass books I should read!?”

A video of the incident in which War Machine can clearly be seen fighting was captured on CCTV which appears to have helped to convict him.

Check out a news report containing both the CCTV footage and video from the resulting criminal trial below.
