Former UFC and Bellator MMA fighter War Machine was found guilty on a multitude of charges stemming from an altercation with former girlfriend Christy Mack and her new boyfriend.
Mack, who testified in the trial, has spoken out on her ordeal and the former porn star found the whole legal process to be agonizing.
“It stays with you for a long time. And while I don’t feel the love that I used to feel for him now, going through this process with somebody that you did love – or that I felt like I loved – is extremely hard,” Mack said on Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel.
Machine could be facing a life sentence in prison, a hearing about his sentencing will be taking place sometime in the near future.
The former fighters girlfriend also had an emotional moment with her abuser, it started when she was being questioned.
“I never looked at him, except for when I was asked to identify him,” Mack said. “And there was one time – I believe it was in the initial hearing – where he had mouthed that he loved me. And that was extremely difficult. I began balling immediately. Because for a long time I did feel still emotionally connected to him.”
Christy Mack’s appearance on “Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel” premiered last Tuesday on HBO.
