Former MMA fighter War Machine took to Twitter to slam his brother for talking bad about their family Tuesday. He also said the world is coming to an end.
War Machine and his brother, who he didn’t call by name, have been estranged for years. “All you have ever done is speak lowly of me when I am not around even on your own Twitter account you put me down but when given the opportunity you use my name to your advantage,” he wrote. “I am not the only family member you have done this too.”
War Machine said his brother’s Twitter handle is “MKope,” but the account had not tweeted anything about the former MMA fighter as of Tuesday morning. He said his brother was a “weasel” who just wants to slander their family.
“I don't feel like you deserve any public attention but it has been brought to my attention that you are still slandering people that I care about,” War Machine continued. “This is not okay. I want everyone who reads this to know that I do not support or endorse anything said by ‘Mkope.’ In fact, I pray for you and hope you change but want nothing to do with who you have become.”
War Machine then took a strange turn in his post, writing “these are the end of times,” like the Bible apparently states. “WWIII is on its way and your best bet is to cling to and know Jesus,” he wrote. “These are the end times the bible talks about how brother will be against brother...the shootings...the people up for election (A woman and a narcissist).” His last statement was an apparent reference to the presidential race between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump.
The mixed martial arts star, whose formal name is Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver, is in jail on charges he allegedly tried to kill his ex-girlfriend, former porn star Christy Mack, in August 2014. His trial was slated to begin in July, but was moved to February, KLAS-TV reported July 5.
War Machine faces 34 felony charges, which includes sexual assault, battery and coercion. He pleaded not guilty to the charges.
