TUF 15 fighter Dakota Cochrane found to be gay film star

It was reported earlier today that one of the new cast members of “The Ultimate Fighter 15,” Dakota Cochrane, was found out to be a gay adult film star. Not to make any brash statements, but I’m sure upon hearing this news, many of the TUF 15 fighters may feel uncomfortable sharing close space and/or fighting with him.

To be honest, I was very reluctant to write this article, due to the fact that a person’s sexuality is no one’s business, and Dakota probably kept these films semi non-public for a reason. But I hope that the majority of MMA fans can get past this bit of information and focus on Cochrane as a fighter and not a gay man.

UFC President Dana White himself stated, “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.”

Hopefully this will be a step in the right direction for more gay fighters to come out and feel welcome in the MMA community.
