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 didn’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 fuckin’ 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 I’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.
Fuckin’ funny right? Didn’t really wanna have to do it but I am sure as hell not lose MY nickname.
Time for a nap.
