Mack (who was 24 at the time of the assault) suffered a lacerated liver, fractured her orbital bone, lost two teeth and broke her nose during the ordeal.

The fighter, Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver, became visibly emotional as Christy Mack took the witness stand Wednesday during Koppenhaver’s attempted murder trial in Las Vegas.

The Associated Press and CBSDFW.com usually doesn’t identify alleged victims of sexual assault, but Mack gave AP permission to use her name. Her legal name is Christine Mackinday.

Koppenhaver has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony charges also including kidnapping, battery, sexual assault and coercion in the alleged attack on Mack and a man she dated, Corey Thomas.

Koppenhaver is now 35. He could face life in prison without parole if he’s convicted.
