War Machine — the controversial MMA fighter turned porn star — is in big trouble in Georgia, after he backed out of an upcoming brawl … through his Twitter page.

Machine (yes, that’s his legal name) was scheduled to get in the ring at Wild Bill’s Fight Night in Duluth, GA tomorrow night … but claims he came down with a staph infection that will prevent him from kicking ass.

The fight promoter tells TMZ that instead of dealing with his situation “professionally” — returning calls, emails, etc — Machine simply posted a message on his Twitter page stating that he was out of the fight.

Now, the Georgia State Athletic and Entertainment Commission is coming down on Machine — suspending the fighter indefinitely for breach of contract.

So far, calls to WM have not been returned.
