According to numerous reports, former MMA fighter War Machine attempted suicide today while jailed in Las Vegas.

The former UFC and Bellator star tried to hang himself, and was found unresponsive this morning in his jail cell.

TMZ has the scoop:

The officer went into the cell and found the ex-MMA fighter had a piece of linen around his neck which was tied to the leg of the bed — and his face was purple. The officer cut the linen, removed it … and we’re told War Machine’s breathing became less strained and he attempted to speak.

He’s currently in a medical isolation cell on suicide watch. We’re told officers found what appeared to be a suicide note in the cell.
