LAS VEGAS (AP) — A mixed martial arts fighter accused of brutally beating his porn star girlfriend in Las Vegas and then fleeing to California is due to face a judge for the first time following his arrest last week in a Los Angeles suburb.

Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver, who fought under the name War Machine, is scheduled Monday afternoon in Ventura County Superior Court following his arrest Friday at a hotel in Simi Valley.

The 32-year-old Koppenhaver is accused of beating Christy Mack so badly early Aug. 8 that she feared for her life and ran naked from her house to seek help from neighbors.

Koppenhaver is due for an extradition hearing in on a fugitive warrant issued after Las Vegas authorities accused him of multiple felony battery, lewdness and coercion charges.
