The friend she was accused of cheating with, Corey Thomas was battered almost to death, in her las Vegas home.

Koppenhaver offered to come up to the hotel room and play  no-strings-attached ‘night nurse’ to Mack who was suffering from a bout of pneumonia. By the time they were done chatting into the wee hours over pizza , the beautiful 21-year-old former cheerleader was ready for the next step.

 “It was an amazing connection,” she recalled in 2015. “I fell in love really quick.”
The pair began a passionate love affair which saw Mackinday get a tattoo declaring herself the “Property of War Machine.”
However, the veneer qickly wore off, Mack say: “He became abusive about four to five months in, but by that time I was totally in love with him, so, so in love,” Mackinday claimed in an interview with ESPN. Enough to give her newly-minted boyfriend several passes, hoping it was transient.
“The first time I thought, ‘Oh, it’ll never happen again’. The day after, he stayed home from training and cuddled me. After every time he would hit me, those were the best days of our relationship,” she said.

He also warned him not to go to the cops

Her longing and hopng almost cost her life and certainly changed her outlook when he savagely drubbed her on Aug. 15, 2014. The beating by Koppenhaver allegedly , was so vicious both Mackinday and her friend Corey Thomas, almost killed died.
A police report tendered to court alleges Koppenhaver burst into Mackinday’s Las Vegas home and accused her of cheating on him with Thomas.
Koppenhaver then allegedly, punched and choked Thomas for nearly 10 minutes before ordering him to leave and warning him not to call the police. Fortunately, Mack had surreptitiously dialed 911 while Thomas was being assaulted and then hid the phone, the report said.

Christy told ESPN when she examines her face like it’s not quite her own, the most basic recognition, and it’s gone: “Just feeling my face, I knew it wasn’t right,” she says. “So when I’d look in the mirror, it’s not me — that person wasn’t me. It’s so hard to go every day without being you anymore.

Once Thomas was gone, police allege Koppenhaver turned on Mackinday, repeatedly punching her as she ran into a bathroom and then forcing her to take a shower.
Koppenhaver then allegedly delivered a beating so ferocious it left Mackinday with a blowout fracture of her left eye and several other broken bones in her face, two missing teeth, a lacerated liver, broken ribs and serious bruising in several places.
She later posted shocking photographs of her injuries on social media.

Koppenhaver will go to trial over the incident next month after a court date was set following months of delays and legal wrangling.
He faces 35 felony charges — including five counts of sexual assault and two counts of attempted murder. Some of these stretch back nearly four years to May 2013.
Proceedings are likely to get even uglier thanks to a court decision to allow evidence that Mackinday discussed a rape fantasy with Koppenhaver before he allegedly sexually assaulted and beat her to a pulp.

The 34-year-old is already serving an 18-month-to-four-year prison term for violating his probation in a prior assault case and faces life in jail if convicted at trial.
Last Thursday, Clark County District Judge Elissa Cadish ruled that jurors can hear testimony about a discussion the ex-lovers had about a rape fantasy prior to the attack.

Mac told the defense allegations of her soliciting rape through an expressed ‘fantasy’ was misrepresenting a joke between her and her ex

Earlier, Koppenhaver’s lawyer Brandon Sua had asked Mackinday on the stand: “Do you ever recall stating to Mr. Koppenhaver that ‘real men rape’?” according to a report in the Las Vegas Review Journal.
“That was a joke between us,” she replied.
Asked to elaborate, Mackinday 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 those comments.
“I did actually ask him to play out a rape fantasy one time, but it never came to fruition,” Mackinday replied.

She described rape fantasy as a personal “role play” and “fetish” in which a “very specific set of guidelines and rules would be set down and laid out before the acts are actually done, for safety reasons and consent reasons.
“I wouldn’t want to have an actual rape happen.”
The trial is due to start on Feb. 27.
