Update (2:30 p.m. PDT): War Machine signed extradition papers at a hearing in Ventura County this afternoon. The hearing at Ventura County Superior Court lasted less than two minutes. He will be face an arraignment over charges when he arrives in Las Vegas.

LAS VEGAS — War Machine, who was arrested Friday on suspicion of beating adult performer Christy Mack, could spend up to 32 years in prison if convicted on all counts, authorities say.

The Clark County District Attorney has filed seven felonies against War Machine, including counts on battery with substantial bodily harm, battery by strangulation, open or gross lewdness, assault with a deadly weapon, coercion, and two counts of battery with substantial bodily harm that constitute domestic violence.

"The total amount of time he is facing, if everything is run consecutive, is 7 to 32 years," Tess Driver, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office, told XBIZ. "With the exception of [two domestic violence charges], the remaining counts are probationable. However, it is up to the sentencing judge as to whether he would be granted probation or not."  

War Machine, 32, also could face up to $52,000 in statutory fines over the seven counts, Driver said.

His arraignment on a felony fugitive from justice charge in California has been scheduled for today at 1:30 p.m. at Ventura County Superior Court on Victoria Street in Ventura, Calif.

War Machine, whose given name was Jon Koppenhaver, awaits extradition to Nevada. He was captured by U.S. marshals on Friday and has been held without bail.

The mixed martial arts fighter is the primary suspect in an assault and battery that left his ex-girlfriend, Mack, and a friend with serious injuries.

War Machine showed up unannounced at Mack’s Las Vegas house two weeks ago and beat her and her friend without saying a word, Mack said.

Mack said that she suffered from 18 broken bones, a broken nose, missing teeth, a fractured rib and a ruptured liver as a result of the hands of War Machine, who is a professional mixed martial artist competing in the welterweight division.

War Machine also is a former boyfriend of Mack's and has had scenes in porn productions.
