Members of a Las Vegas jury convicted former mixed martial arts fighter War Machine of sexual assault and battery charges Monday but said they could not reach a unanimous verdict on two counts of attempted murder.

"He did it. He used fists to punch the face", Leiderman said Thursday of the attacks on Mack.

The jury is considering 34 felonies, also including domestic battery, coercion and dissuading a witness from reporting a crime.

War Machine was accused of showing up at Mack's home in the early hours of August 8, 2014, while she was asleep in bed with Thomas.

Jay Leiderman, War Machine's lawyer, said brain injuries and a cocktail of drugs - including Adderall, Lexapro, and steroids - combined with rage and shock and led to a situation in which "someone loses their mind".

Koppenhaver, 35, went by his birth name during the two-week trial but had legally changed it to War Machine during his 19-fight MMA career.

Mack - star of Cherry Spot 2, Hooker Hookups and Porn in the United States of America 1, among others - dated Thomas for two months before Koppenhaver arrived at her home unexpectedly.

Thomas testified that he suffered a broken nose, dislocated shoulder, scrapes, bruises and bite marks.

Once War Machine let Thomas leave, according to Mack and prosecutors, he began brutally assaulting her. Mack said her ex-boyfriend beat her until she was unconsciousness, then forced her to undress and shower before trying to rape her.

After the attack Mack was left with injuries taht included broken teeth, a fractured rib and a severely ruptured liver.

"He nearly beat her to death and he threw a dog blanket on her as she was convulsing from a lacerated liver".

Koppenhaver was arrested a week later in the Los Angeles suburb of Simi Valley, and was returned to Nevada. The former fighter has been incarcerated since his apprehension in mid-2014.
