Has coming home early to surprise a girlfriend or wife ever worked out well? When it happened for War Machine's girlfriend Christy Mack, it turned out to be a life changing event.

According to multiple reports, MMA fighter War Machine cant home early Friday to surprise his porn star girlfriend Christy Mack. Following his surprise return home, Mack was beaten so severely that she was admitted to and remains in a local Las Vegas hospital. While exact details, and parties involved are unknown, War Machine is currently wanted by Las Vegas PD for engaging in a three person altercation, but his whereabouts are unknown.

War Machine broke his silence by hitting Twitter Saturday night:

@ChristyMack I love you and hope you're okay. I came him(sp) early to surprise you and help you set up for your convention. I can't believe what I found and can't believe what happened.

All I wanted was to surprise you and help and do something this.

I'm so heart all ways. I will always love you.

To be clear, War Machine has not been charged, and full details are not currently available. The above tweets have since been deleted, and were the first since Friday morning when saying "I can't believe this, I must be cursed," (whether in regards to the incident or not is unclear).

TMZ has reported that Mack was beaten so severely that her ability to speak is impaired, and that she is in "very bad shape." War Machine was released from the Bellator roster Friday evening, with a statement as follows:

Bellator President Scott Coker tells TMZ Sports ... "We have a zero tolerance policy here at Bellator when it relates to any form of domestic violence, and after learning of this latest incident involving (Jon Koppenhaver) War Machine, Bellator is releasing him from his promotional contract with the organization.

We're not trying to make light of the situation, but as we've seen time and time again, MMA Fighters and Porn Stars are nothing if not the picture of mental health and stability. This couple fully embodies that spirit by getting massive tattoos of one another within two weeks of first dating.

Ronda Rousey's boyfriend Brandan Schaub

When you’re Ronda Rousey, you can date a different guy every night. But apparently the UF Champion Ronda Rousey's boyfriend Brendan Schaub is proof that she can settle down for a while,... even if it is only for a little while.

Although their relationship is only a rumor, photos of the two tell a different story. Ronda Rousey and Brendan Schaub were recently photographed together enjoying the countryside in Costa Rica. To most, this might not seem like a telltale sign that the two were a couple, however it just so happens that Costa Rica is a place where apparently Ronda Rousey only takes her friends. But for this vacation, it seems she left them in Venice.

Brendan Schaub, the 31-year-old Aurora Colorado native, is a former semi-professional football player for the AFL's Utah Blaze and a former member of the Buffalo Bills practice squad. He was a finalist and the runner-up of Spike TV's The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights and is currently ranked #14 in the official UFC heavyweight rankings. Ronda Rousey is currently ranked the #10 pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC. This makes one couple I wouldn’t want to mess with, to say the least.

Although the two were likely dating, it seems the romance ended while Ronda Rousey was shooting a movie in Bulgaria. At least she still has her friends in Venice. But for now, the striking beauty can continue dating whomever she wants. She certainly won’t give up on men. As Ronda Rousey has said multiple times to the media, she believes having sex before fights is a good thing and she tries to do it frequently.

UFC Fight Night 38 was set to be a memorable card. With 12 fights, including Will Chope vs. Diego Brandao, the card was stacked and had an eager crowd at the Ginasio Nelio Dias in Natal, Brazil.

Unfortunately, The UFC scratched the Chope/Brandao bout after learning of an altercation with Will Chope's ex-wife which led to his discharge from the Air Force in 2009. The UFC released the following statement:

Tonight's featherweight bout between Will Chope and Diego Brandao has been canceled after UFC officials were made aware of Chope's previous military conviction. The UFC does not condone behavior of this nature whatsoever and Chope has been released from his contract.

Brandao will receive both his show and win money for the bout.

Bleacher Report was first to discover the report the incident in which Chope assaulted his ex-wife. According to court documents, the couple, who was separated at the time, got into an argument over a joint credit card in October, 2009. Reports indicate that Chope threatened his ex-wife with a knife and used a blanket to cover her cries. This incident came on the heels of a July, 2009 incident where Chope was given a nonjudicial punishment in the wake of assaulting his wife when he learned on alleged infidelity. A military judge convicted Chope of three couples of assault and battery.

Chope took to Facebook twice to address the situation. After learning his fight had been cancelled, he posted the following:

My fight has been canceled for a 5 year old mistake I made. I am truly sorry to all the fans and will do everything I can to make this right. I have spoken with my ex-wife on the phone and she supports what I am doing and together we will make a formal press release as soon as I get back to the USA on Wednesday."

When Chope's formal press release comes out Wednesday, we will update here.
