Former MMA star, War Machine who is serving a life sentence for brutally beating his ex-girlfriend just got married behind bars.
War Machine tied the knot with his longtime prison pen pal Ashley Farrington at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada. Taking a break from lockdown to say, “I do.”The convicted woman-beater slid a gold band on his new wife’s finger. Ashley’s son and another family member were witnesses at the wedding.
War Machine proposed to his pen pal in 2018 by reading her a love poem. He got down on bended knee, asking her to marry him even though he had no ring … and she said yes.
The former MMA fighter was arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment after he was found guilty of sexual assault, battery by strangulation, coercion, kidnapping, and several other charges when viciously attacked his ex-girlfriend, porn star, Christy Mack.
War is eligible for parole after 36 years when he’s 71. Looks like the honeymoon for this marriage will have to wait for a long time.
