Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15 contestant Dakota Cochrane's gay porn past adds new twist to live season

Last October, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White said he "didn't care" if his company employed a gay fighter. In fact, he even went so far as to encourage them to "come out of the closet."

Here's an excerpt from that conversation:

"I'll tell you right now, if there was a gay fighter in UFC, I wish he would come out. I could care less if there's a gay fighter in the UFC. There probably is and there's probably more than one. I mean, it's 2012. Give me a break."

Be careful what you wish for.

Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15 contestant Dakota Cochrane, who Middle Easy reports is none other than former gay porn star "Danny," could be the first fighter to hold White accountable for his previous statements.

For better or for worse.

Cochrane (11-2) is perhaps best known in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA) for his lopsided unanimous decision win over Jamie Varner at Titan Fighting Championship 20 last September.

That win, along with his overall record, was enough to earn him a spot on the FX Channel's March 9 premiere.

But even if Cochrane has White in his corner, how will the other contestants react to his presence in the tight living quarters of the TUF house, along with daily grappling drills and other incidental contact?

As silly as it sounds, some heterosexual men, like heavyweight legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, just can't bare the thought of having homosexual hands on his Brazilian body.

Not that I want to speak for the gay community, but I'm pretty sure the inside of an MMA gym is the last place anyone wants to be looking for a cheap thrill. Still, the mere thought of homosexuality is enough to upset the apple cart for some men, and it will be interesting to see how the inclusion (or perhaps exclusion) of Cochrane affects the day-to-day happenings on the show.

Especially when the booze starts flowing.

Find out who Cochrane will share the house with on The Ultimate Fighter 15 (assuming he makes it past the opening elimination rounds) when it premieres a week from Friday by checking out the complete roster right here.
