War Machine attempted to kill himself in jail this week.

The MMA fighter has been imprisoned in California on attempted murder charges since August, when he was arrested for allegedly brutally attacking his former girlfriend, Christy Mack.

War Machine tried suicide by hanging on Tuesday night, but was rescued by a Clark County jail officer. He was initially found unresponsive in his cell, with linen tied from his neck to the bedpost.

By the time a corrections officer saw War Machine laying on the ground with his feet up on the bunk bed, he had turned purple. The official was able to cut the linen and remove it from the athlete’s neck, after which War Machine started becoming responsive.

A suicide note was also found. War Machine is now on suicide watch in a medical isolation cell, says TMZ.
