Mack gives her side of the story, shares graphic injury pictures...
UPDATE: Christy Mack has posted new details of her assault over the weekend, which as reported is allegedly at the hands of War Machine. Mack posted to Twitter saying that War Machine ended their relationship in May and moved back to San Diego. She says that he then showed up at 2 AM on Friday and found herself and someone else "fully clothed and unarmed in the house."
She added that War Machine then assaulted the friend without saying anything, sent him away and them made her get undressed and shower in front of him. She claims that the assault on her happened at that point and lists among her injuries a total of eighteen broken bones around her eyes, a broken nose, missing teeth, a fractured rib and ruptured liver.
Mack says War Machine also "sawed much of my hair off" with a dull knife he had obtained from the kitchen, took her phone and cancelled all of her plans for the coming week "to make sure that no one would worry about my whereabouts." Mack says that the fighter threatened to rape her but was unable to perform and then hit her again, leaving her on the floor while he went into her bedroom. She then ran out of the house unclothed, calling for neighbors to help her and one of them took her to the hospital where she has been ever since.
Mack posted graphic pictures of her injuries to Twitter as well, which you can see below. War Machine is still on the run with a $10,000 reward for him.
In addition, TMZ reports that the Las Vegas PD has filed seven arrest warrants for the following: two felony batteries, two felony domestic violence with great bodily injury, felony coercion with the threat of force, felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon.

Yesterday War Machine released several tweets directed at Christy Mack, who is still currently hospitalized, claiming that he loves her. His tweets seemed to imply that he arrived home to surprise her but possibly saw her in bed with another man. Later, War Machine released several more tweets claiming he was innocent and he went home to surprise Mack with an engagement ring, but "ended up fighting for my life." You can read his latest tweets below.
@ChristyMack I just wanted to see your face when I surprised you with the ring ...this is a nightmare. You're in my thoughts.
