A lot of fighters have done a lot of stupid things before, but I have to say this one at least makes the top five. The mixed martial artist formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver, has legally changed his name to his nickname, ‘War Machine.’ Even better is why he did it. Machine explains on his MySpace blog.

Subject: Funny ass shit!

SO in case you didn’t notice in my last fight the UFC did NOT use my nickname when I fought. Turns out some gay ass wrestling federation threatened to sue them because they recently named one of their wrestlers The War Machine Rhino and trademarked the name.

Too fuckin’ bad that I have been using this name for 6 years, have it tatted on my body and it is what my fans yell out when I’m fighting.

If you know my personality then you know damn well I am not gonna let some faggot ass, FAKE wrestler steal MY name..
SO 6 weeks ago I filed a change of name request and today I had court to make my name officially WAR MACHINE.

Fuckin’ funny right? Didn’t really wanna have to do it but I am sure as hell not lose MY nickname.

Time for a nap.


Yeah War, you really showed them!

Lol, this made my day.
