Metro Police are investigating allegations that a former UFC fighter and small-time porn actor was involved in a domestic dispute that ended in severe injuries early this morning.

Police have identified Jonathan Koppenhaver as the primary suspect in a dispute that occurred in the 2400 block of Pueblo Way — near Eastern Avenue and Desert Inn Road — at around 4 a.m., Metro said.

Two people sustained serious but nonlife-threatening injuries during the incident, according to Metro.

Koppenhaver competed in the UFC in 2007. He legally changed his name to “War Machine” in 2008, according to fighting website Cage Today, though Metro referred to him by his birth name.

He has also appeared in adult films, according to the Internet Adult Film Database, and in Hustler, a pornographic magazine.
