The Ultimate Fighter season six cast member Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver has legally changed his name to War Machine after a dispute erupted with TNA Wresting over the use of his nickname. Here’s a clip of War Machines blog post from his friends only MySpace page.
Subject: Funny ass shit!
SO in case you didnâ€™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 fuckinâ€™ 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 Iâ€™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.
Fuckinâ€™ funny right? Didnâ€™t really wanna have to do it but I am sure as hell not lose MY nickname.
Time for a nap.
