The Ultimate Fighter 6 castmember Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver plead guilty to assault charges on Thursday stemming from a September incident outside the Undisputed Fitness Center in San Diego where Koppenhaver is a trainer, according to a report by The San Diego Union-Tribune:
[Koppenhaver] choked a Las Vegas man unconscious and hit him in the face outside San Diego’s Undisputed fitness and training center early Sept. 2
Koppenhaver also faced a battery charge, but that was dismissed as part of a plea agreement reached during the preliminary hearing Thursday afternoon.
Judge Frank Brown said the change in plea could result in a misdemeanor punishment. [The victim Darren] Zatkow told the court he thought a reduced punishment was OK because he believed a felony conviction would destroy Koppenhaver’s career.
Koppenhaver is scheduled to be sentenced on February 7th.
