Former MMA star, War Machine—aka the man who is serving a life sentence for brutally beating his ex-girlfriend—is getting married Friday, Aug. 2, proving love really must be blind, TMZ reported.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ … he will marry Ashley Farrington at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada. She’s the woman who befriended him after writing letters to him back in 2017.

Their relationship evolved to visits in prison and eventually their engagement. There will be no traditional honeymoon and no conjugal visits.

If a prisoner wants to get married, the prisoner must file a request for marriage … which is reviewed by the chaplain and warden. They both sit with the couple and explain the seriousness of the crimes committed by the prisoner to the non-prisoner.

According to the report, Ashley did file for a marriage license in Nevada, and War Machine did make the marriage request in prison. In this case, she apparently still chose to marry him despite his heinous 2014 crime against Christy Mack.

War Machine was found guilty of kidnapping, sexual assault, coercion, battery by strangulation and several other charges. He’s eligible for parole after 36 years … When he will be 71-year-old.
