For the past month everyone in the MMA community has been asking….is it still on? Is War Machine (10-3) versus “Tex” Aaron Johnson (6-2) at Wild Bill’s in Atlanta April 17 still on? The answer is yes!
Despite War Machine‘s recent arrest outside a San Diego bar that landed him on TMZ and a spit bag over his face, the fight is still on for Saturday, April 17.
In February of 2009, he legally changed his from Jon Koppenhaver to War Machine. He had one of the best fights in the history of MMA PPV. He’s starred in a porn movie with Digital Playground. He’s several times faced legal action outside the cage. To raise money for his attorneys, he’s put on ebay all his memorabilia from his MMA fights including some of his most personal items – his liver, his kidney and his sperm for sale.
And April 17, the MMA fighter known as War Machine will go to Atlanta to fight local standout “Tex” Johnson in the main event of Wild Bill’s Fight Night.
Johnson enters the fight on a four-fight win streak, last submitting Johnny Buck (1-4) by heel hook at Wild Bill’s last December.
