Chandella Powell apologizes for porn past, hasn't been fired by UFC

As you may or may not have heard, UFC Octagon girl Chandella Powell was recently outed on UFC color commentator Joe Rogan's forum as having a past in the world of pornography.

Indeed, Powell did some work under the name Mariah Ashton. No, she wasn't involved in any hardcore porn or anything like that but she did enough to cause a stink in the MMA world, enough so that rumors have been running rampant that she's been fired for her past fleshy indiscretions.

After staying silent on the matter for a few days, Powell took to Twitter last night to address it:

"When you are young, you often don't realize that your actions have consequences. I made a bad decision about ten years ago, but you learn from these moments. There is nothing I can do to change the past, and believe me, if I could, I would. That decision doesn't represent who I am today. All I can do now is put the past behind me and move forward. I am sorry to disappoint any of my fans and my family at Zuffa. I love you guys :)"

Hey, we were all young and dumb at one time, right?

No official word has been sent out regarding her status with Zuffa but signs point to her retaining her job. Her profile hasn't been removed on UFC.com and in fact, it was recently updated to reflect her actual age (it had said she was two and now says she's 30).

The lesson here? As Rogan himself once famously said, "You can't stop the Internet." So if you've done some soft porn in your past, hiding it/trying to forget about it will do you no good.

The better lesson? Just don't do porn, kids.
