The Ultimate Fighter season 6 veteran Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver was sentenced today to three years probation for pleading guilty to felony assault charges after Koppenhaver assaulted a man outside the North Park fight club in San Diego, CA. Koppenhaver was also ordered to pay $2300 in restitution and server 30 hours of community service.

The judge in the case apparently reduced the felony charge to a mistermeaner after the victim apparently told the judge he didn’t want to jeopardize Koppenhaver’s career with the UFC. A felony charge would have made his UFC contract Null and Void.

War Machine is rumored to be fighting at UFC 84 in May, to an unknown opponent.
