SAN DIEGO — Adult performer and Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter War Machine, aka Jon Paul Koppenhaver , 28, will serve a year in jail after pleading guilty to two felonies and violating probation.

The sentencing is a result of a bar fight he was involved in last March and a 2007 felony assault case, which was later reduced to a misdemeanor.

War Machine — his legal name — debuted as an adult performer in Digital Playground’s yet-to-be-released “Riley Steele Loves War Machine” feature.

The performer was arrested last March after a brawl with bouncers outside of Thruster’s Lounge in Point Loma.

It was reported that after the altercation with police he ran from the scene, was apprehended and had a “spit bag” put over his head indicating that he was getting aggressive with oral fluids.

He was also involved in a scuffle with a female bartender at Last Day Cocktails in February after she questioned his War Machine I.D.

A report on SignOnSanDiego said because War Machine has a professional fight scheduled for July 9, San Diego Superior Court Judge David Danielsen gave him a July 16 surrender date to be booked and begin his year-long sentence. If he doesn’t show he could be sentenced to five years in jail.

Deputy District Attorney Michael Runyon said War Machine must serve the entire year in jail, as a condition of the plea agreement and he agreed not to ask for additional time in custody at a hearing scheduled for August 12 if War Machine complies with the order, the report said.

War Machine’s attorney Cole Casey commenting on the Thruster’s incident said that the performer is a recognized name in the mixed-martial arts world, which can draw negative attention in certain settings.

“There’s a target on your back because people want a piece of you,” Casey said. “Jon speaks his mind so he’s controversial. He tends to ruffle some feathers.”

War Machine made his name after his appearance on the UFC's "The Ultimate Fighter" reality show on Spike TV in 2007.
