Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The MMA fighter accused of brutally beating his ex-girlfriend has been booked into the Clark County Detention Center.

As of Saturday morning, the CCDC website listed Johnathan P. Koppenhaver, 32, as a booked inmate.

A week-long manhunt for the fighter, known as "War Machine," came to an end just outside of Los Angeles more than a week ago. He was extradited to Las Vegas and was booked into CCDC.

Koppenhaver is accused of attacking adult film star, Christy Mack inside her home near Desert Inn and Eastern.

He is scheduled to be in court Sept. 3 at 8:30 a.m.
