Pornographic actress Christy Mack, 22, shared pictures and a full statement on Monday that accused War Machine of assaulting her.

An MMA fighter who was wanted for allegedly breaking 19 bones and rupturing the liver of his porn star girlfriend was arrested in Las Vegas on Friday.

Jonathan "War Machine" Koppenhaver was alleged to have assaulted Christy Mack and a male friend of hers on Aug. 8 at a Las Vegas residence that Koppenhaver shared with the adult actress.

Mack received severe but not life-threatening injuries and was hospitalized. Pictures of her puffed and bruised face circulated on Twitter after the attack.

After fleeing the scene, Koppenhaver, who legally changed his name to War Machine, was found seven days later by U.S. marshals at an Extended Stay America Hotel in Simi Valley, California. Inside the hotel room was “a small quantity of cash and some pizza,” police said.

The marshals turned him over to the Simi Valley Police Department for booking on his warrant from Las Vegas.

These arrest warrants were issued for the Aug. 8 incident:

1 count Battery Resulting in Substantial Bodily Harm

1 count Battery By Strangulation

2 counts Battery with Substantial Bodily Harm

1 count Open and Gross Lewdness

1 count Assault with Deadly Weapon

1 count Coercion with Use of Force or Threat of Force

Koppenhaver is still on probation for a 2010 fight at a Pacific Beach bar. For that, he pleaded guilty to assault.
