Nevada District Judge Elissa Cadish announced a new ruling set to take place next month involving evidence in the ongoing abuse trial against ex-martial arts fighter Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver.
Koppenhaver is currently serving time after he was arrested on Aug. 8, 2014 for nearly beating his ex-girlfriend, adult film star Christy Mackinday, to death after a suspected cheating incident.
Now, a new disturbing twist has been toted into the case, which suggests that Mack had an alleged rape fantasy towards Koppenhaver, something she described into detail during court hearing last Thursday.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Mack revealed that her ex often bragged that “real men rape,” and that she previously discussed the fantasy with him.

“Do you ever recall stating to Mr. Koppenhaver that ‘real men rape’?” defense lawyer Brandon Sua asked Mackinday during the hearing.
“That was a joke between us,” she said. “That was a pretty common slogan for him to say, and yes — I would repeat it back to him.”
Sua then asked whether the couple ever acted upon the discussion.
“I did actually ask him to play out a rape fantasy one time,” she added, “but it never came to fruition.”
Mackinday suggested that the comments were part of a role play ideation, not meant in realistic terms.

“I wouldn’t want to have an actual rape happen,” she said.
Following the 2014 attack, Mackinday suffered a severe eye fracture, several broken facial bones, two missing teeth, a damaged liver and broken ribs.
Koppenhaver is currently facing 34 counts of domestic abuse charges, including five counts of sexual assault and two counts of attempted murder, according to the report.
Koppenhaver will serve a life sentence in prison if convicted next month at trial.
Prosecutors announced during hearing their decision to extend two plea deals — one specifying possibility of 14 years to life without parole or 16 years to life both without parole of 18 to 40 years in prison — both of which Koppenhaver rejected.Send a Letter to the Editor
