LOS ANGELES — A contestant on Spike TV’s “The Ultimate Fighter 6” and former UFC combatant War Machine has entered the octagon of adult entertainment. The controversial fighter has hooked up with LA Direct Models for representation.

Machine (real name, Jon Koppenhaver) shot his first scene last weekend for Digital Playground with contract star Riley Steele.

“I was incredibly turned on when I first saw War Machine,” Steele said. “He's very sexy and has an amazing body. He admitted to being a bit nervous, which actually made me nervous too. When the camera started, he completely shocked me. He was an animal and a total natural. War Machine is now on the top of my list.”

He pledges to continue fighting during his performing career, though not with the UFC.

“I’m still going to be fighting; I’m a free agent now,” Machine said. “It’s my passion. Porn is just another way for me to get paid for doing something I love to do. My mentor told me to find something you’re passionate about. That’s why I fight and I love to fuck so this is going to be good.”

While Machine’s overall record stands at 10-3, his UFC success was short lived. After appearing on season six of “The Ultimate Fighter,” where he defeated Jared Rollins, Machine was booted from the UFC after making “insensitive comments” regarding the death of another fighter.

“Many of us are fans of MMA,” LA Direct Models owner Derek Hay said. “It’s exciting that we have the opportunity to guide him as he embarks on his new career.”
