A porn star who was put in the hospital after she says she was beaten by her MMA fighter ex-boyfriend has released a statement detailing her experience.

Las Vegas police say Christy Mack was left with severe, but not life-threatening, injuries early Friday morning when she was confronted and beaten by MMA fighter Jonathan Koppenhaver, who brawls under the name War Machine.

Koppenhaver, who has also performed in porn, is still on the run.

In a statement sent to The Huffington Post, Mack tells her story of what happened and details her injuries that resulted:

At about 2 am Friday morning, Jon Koppenhaver arrived unannounced to my home in Las Vegas, NV, after he broke up with me in May, he moved out of my house and back to San Diego. When he arrived, he found myself and one other fully clothed and unarmed in the house. Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face.

Mack also sent photos showing her injuries.

"I have no recollection of how many times I was hit, I just know my injuries that resulted from my beating," Mack said. "My injuries include 18 broken bones around my eyes, my nose is broken in 2 places, I am missing teeth and several more are broken."

Mack said she can't chew or see out of her left eye. "My speech is slurred from my swelling and lack of teeth. I have a fractured rib and severely ruptured liver from a kick to my side," Mack said.

Her leg was so badly injured that she can't walk and she has "several lesions" from a knife Koppenhaver retrieved from her kitchen, she said.

Mack also said her ex "sawed much of my hair off with this dull knife."

Mack continued, "He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly. He took my phone and canceled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts. He told me he was going to rape me, but was disappointed in himself when he could not get hard."

Mack then explained how she escaped:

After another hit or two, he left me on the floor bleeding and shaking, holding my side from the pain of a broken rib. He left the room and went to the kitchen where I could hear him ruffling through my drawers. Assuming he was finding a sharper, more stable knife to end my life, I ran out my back door, shutting it behind me so the dogs didn't run inside to tip him off. I hopped the fence to the golf course behind my house and ran to a neighboring house. Naked and afraid he would catch me, I kept running through the neighborhood knocking on doors. Finally, one answered and I was brought to the hospital and treated for my injuries.

In tweets posted to his verified account last week, Koppenhaver appeared to defend himself while still on the run from police.

Mack said she appreciated all of the support she's received and said " I am healing fast and well, and I appreciate all of the prayers and visits I have received over the past few days."

She also explained why she's speaking out now.

"After many months of fear and pressure to keep this man happy, although I fear for my life, I feel that I can no longer put myself in this situation. The cheating by him nearly every day, and almost weekly abuse is now more than I can stand."

If you have any information on Koppenhaver's whereabouts, please call the Las Vegas Police's tip line: (702) 385-5555.
