Former Bellator MMA and UFC fighter Koppenhaver was booked in the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas early Saturday morning.

Charged with brutalizing his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack and another man, Koppenhaver, was arrested at a hotel in a Simi Valley, Calif. on Aug. 15, following a week-long manhunt.

Koppenhaver, 32, waived extradition at a hearing in Ventura County, Calif., and was transported to Las Vegas early Saturday.

Today’s Arrest Warrant Return Hearing represents, in essence, the endpoint of the extradition process. At this stage, Koppenhaver’s legal counsel is named, he enters a plea, and a preliminary schedule is set.

His amended complaint contains more than 30 counts, including sexual assault, kidnapping, and two counts of attempted murder.

Initially facing up to 32 years in prison, Koppenhaver is now facing a potential life sentence.

One of his attorneys calls the case “overzealous prosecution.”
