After much hoopla yesterday on finding out that one of the new cast members of “The Ultimate Fighter 15,” had done gay adult films and was presumably gay himself, Dakota Cochrane has come out and said he is a straight man after all.
25 year-old Cochrane has a fiance, and is a father of two. He said the gay films where done in college when he was strapped for money and that they paid well. Needless to say, he now regrets it.
“It’s definitely a decision I regret. If I would have known what would happen I definitely wouldn’t have done it. But I had money issues and I needed help. I went there to do pictures, and they started throwing pretty high numbers in front of me. I didn’t really think. It was a big mistake.”
But Dakota doesn’t try to hide his past, in his audition tape for TUF 15, he talked about the adult films and was still chosen for the house. I guess honesty really is the best policy.
“I think it’s a little bit courageous for both of us,” he said of the UFC’s decision to include him on the show. “I could just hide in a hole and no one would know except for the people close to me. And to them, I was up front. I let them know right away so it wasn’t anything that could come back and bite them in the butt. I think maybe they respected that a little bit. I think some people judge against it, some people will be OK with it. Some people will want me to get my butt kicked, and hopefully others will respect what I’m trying to do.”
