If War Machine doesn’t surrender in the next 24 hours, famed reality television star Dog the Bounty Hunter has threatened to track down and collect the $10,000 bounty on the former UFC and Bellator fighter’s head.

Jon Koppenhaver, otherwise known as War Machine, is reportedly on the run after allegedly beating and assaulting his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack.

According to Sherdog.com, the Las Vegas Police Department has issued seven arrest warrants for Koppenhaver, including several counts of battery, assault with a deadly weapon, open and gross lewdness and threats by force. A $10,000 reward has already been set for Koppenhaver's capture.

Late Monday night, Duane “Dog” Chapman took to Twitter to give the troubled MMA star an ultimatum.

Koppenhaver, who is believed to still be in the San Diego area, has sent out tweets claiming his innocence in the entire ordeal. He argues that it was him who was fighting for his life when he encountered Miss Mack in the company of an unnamed man.

According to Koppenhaver, he stopped by Mack’s residence to “give her an engagement ring.”

Mack has already refuted those claims in a statement released on Monday.

In the statement, she claims that Koppenhaver arrived at her home unannounced and proceeded to attack her “fully clothed” male friend. After assaulting her friend, Mack said Koppenhaver then turned his attention to her, forcing her to undress and beating her.

Her injuries include 18 broken bones around her eyes, missing teeth, several lesions from a knife, a broken nose and a ruptured liver.

The 61-year-old Chapman is apparently serious about coming after Koppenhaver, and time is almost up. Stay tuned to Bleacher Report as more news becomes available on this developing story.

Corey Harrison of Pawn Stars has doubled the reward money for Koppenhaver's capture. In a Twitter post, he explained that the situation goes beyond PR. He desperately wants to "bring Koppenhaver to justice."

 

Update: August 13 (12:00 a.m. Eastern Time)

Time is up Koppenhaver, and Chapman has officially embarked on his quest to find the MMA fighter.
