Dakota Cochrane, Ultimate Fighter 15 Contestant, Outed As Gay Porn Performer

Multiple MMA sites are reporting that Dakota Cochrane, one of the contestants on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, has performed in gay pornographic videos. Cochrane is best known to MMA fans for his upset win over former WEC champ Jamie Varner last fall. The 25 year-old Cochrane has an 11-2 pro MMA record that also includes a win over four time NCAA Division III wrestling champ Marcus Levesseur.

According to gay news blog Queerty, Cochrane was outed last fall along with another MMA fighter and porn performer:

...porn blogs recently outed these two porn performers as pro-mixed martial arts fighters-a style of ring fighting where opponents use any combination of boxing, wrestling, karate, and anything else you've ever seen used in a Van Damme or Steven Seagal movie.

It will be very interesting to see how Dana White, the UFC and FX handle this news.

White went on the record last fall about homosexual fighters:

White said that while a few fighters occasionally step out of line, the vast majority -- "300-something," in his view are inspirational, role- model types to kids and adults.

Though there has never been an openly gay fighter in the UFC, White said there would be no problems for that individual under his watch.

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

He didn't however say anything about a fighter with a past as a gay porn performer. Recently the UFC apparently struggled with the decision of whether or not to sanction Octagon girl Chandella Powell after her soft-core porn past was revealed.

Cochrane was officially named a contestant on the series yesterday when the cast list was released. All 32 contestants are expected to fight for a place on the show on the series' FX debut on Friday, March 9.
