Corey Thomas Was 2nd Victim in Alleged 'War Machine' Attack on Christy Mack

By    |   Friday, 15 Aug 2014 10:02 AM

Corey Thomas has been identified as the second victim of an alleged assault last week by MMA fighter Jon "War Machine" Koppenhaver, an attack that also hospitalized Koppenhaver's porn star girlfriend Christy Mack.

The cage fighter was still on the run as of Thursday night, the day after TMZ broke the news that Thomas was the second victim. He suffered two black eyes, a broken nose, and was reportedly bitten by Koppenhaver as well. Mack, 23, remains in the hospital with 18 broken bones and a lacerated liver.

Thomas was featured on VH1's reality show "Megan Wants a Millionaire" in 2009, which had more than a dozen wealthy men compete for the affections of an attractive blonde who was cast off the second season of Bret Michaels' "Rock of Love" dating program. Thomas is the founder of Las Vegas-based web design company The Web Squad.

According to the New York Daily News, the short-lived show was canceled three episodes in after it was discovered one of the contestants, not Thomas, killed his ex-wife — cutting her up, putting the pieces of her body in a suitcase, and depositing it in a dumpster. He later hanged himself.

Police have issued seven warrants for Koppenhaver's arrest.

"War Machine" has issued a number of tweets that appear to deny having a hand in the alleged attack, but remains at large.

Over the weekend, porn star Jenna Jameson posted a picture of her and Mack to Instagram, pledging her support to the badly beaten young woman.

"Please everone [sic] pray for my amazing, beautiful friend @ChristyMack, she is in the hospital with massive injuries inflicted by her ex. She is a beautiful soul, and I know she has the guts to press charges on @WarMachine. I know her friend was also injured, and I pray for him also, also my heart is with their families!"

Dog the Bounty Hunter, the reality TV bail bondsman, has also recently vowed to catch Koppenhaver and bring him to justice, while fans of Mack have started a charity fund to help pay for her hospital treatment.

Bellator MMA, which had hosted Koppenhaver's cage fights, severed ties with him after the news broke.

Koppenhaver and Mack have tattoos of each other's names, and have said themselves that their relationship can sometimes be stormy.

"If things don't work out for, god forbid, any reason, you can just say you're a mack, like you're a mack daddy," one podcast host said of Koppenhaver's neck tattoo, which reads "Mack."

"Well, I told her what I would do is I would just kill her and then I'd get, 'Rest in peace,'" the cage fighter responded.

"It's fair enough, really," Mack joked back.
