This is utter insanity!

MMA fighter War Machine is currently in jail as he faces 32 charges for viciously assaulting his ex girlfriend Christy Mack and her friend Corey Thomas including two counts of attempted murder.

But the once professional fighter doesn't seem to be expressing any remorse for his actions while he's in jail.

A letter he sent out was obtained that revealed Mr. Machine does NOT believe he should've been charged at all for his actions, and that ultimately his ex got off easy with what she got.

And what she got was just awful!!!
