Former MMA Fighter "War Machine" Wrote Delusional MRA-laced Note Before Attempted Suicide

In the note, War Machine — born Jonathan Koppenhaver — apologized to his friends and family for the violent beating and sexual assault of Christy Mack. He begins with a quotation from the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche — “to die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly” — before bragging that despite the fact that he’s dead, he “experienced more in my short life than 5 avg. men combined.”

Using language associated with the Men’s Rights Movement, he implores his brother to “keep alpha male shit alive.” He tells his friends he loves them, writing “may my strength be with you.”

He concluded his portion of the letter by asking its intended recipients “to remember me for my times of strength,” and noting that “society has killed men, I was never meant to live in this era anyway. Follow your dreams and think for yourselves.”

He has been in medical isolation on suicide watch since he attempted to take his own life, and is due in court for a preliminary hearing on the 32 charges against him on November 14, 2014.
