Gay Porn Star on the Cast of The Ultimate Fighter

UFC placing gay porn star on this season of TUF

That’s right.  You read correctly.  The UFC is knowingly placing a gay porn star on this season of The Ultimate Fighter.

Guess he still gets to roll around with the guys!

Dakota Cochrane is like any other 25 year old fighter trying to smash his way into the UFC, except this fighter has a rather, eh, dirty past?  Cochrane says he’s not gay, he just had some financial problems during his college years and resorted to some shocking decisions to pay the bills.  Cochrane has been completely open with both FX and the UFC regarding his past ventures.  The fact that FX and the UFC are still giving him a chance despite the potential PR shit-storm is kind of amazing.  It speaks volumes of both organizations.

Or does it?  You see, Cochrane isn’t claiming to be gay, which could have ended up making the UFC look to be a very open-minded organization, he’s just done gay porn.  This fact could end up being what media outlets grab onto and try to exploit.  There is no shield of being openly gay for Cochrane.  He’s just done gay porn.  If he was in fact gay then the UFC would appear to be a forward-thinking company who doesn’t discriminate.  Instead they are left with a fighter who’s past will always haunt him.

To sponsor, or not to sponsor?

Something else that is interesting to consider is how sponsors will perceive Dakota Cochrane.  Will they look at him as just another fighter, or a guy who they want nothing to do with?  All that is certain is Dakota had better kick some ass when The Ultimate Fighter begins March 9th on FX.  That is, after all, what it’s all about.
