Back when the Culinary Union tried to kick a gay hornet’s nest by declaring the UFC was anti-LGBT, Dana White countered with a very inclusive message for all his fighters:
“I’ll tell you right now, if there’s a gay fighter in the 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. It’s 2012. Give me a break.”
No fighters on the roster took Dana White up on his offer to proudly step out of the closet. But we now have the next best thing: one of the contestants on the upcoming season of the Ultimate Fighter is a gay porn star.
MiddleEasy’s Zeus took the bullet for the blogosphere and painstakingly paired up pictures of TUF fighter Dakota Cochrane with pictures of gay porn star ‘Danny.’ Just like with Chandella, we have a match! No word on if Dakota / Danny will have to apologize on twitter like Chandella and declare “this doesn’t represent who I am today.” He used to pound on guys, and now he pounds on guys. Seems pretty straightforward to me. Here’s Dakota showing the difference on Jamie Varner’s face:
What might not be so straightforward is Dakota Cochrane’s legit sexual orientation. Yep, just because you have a gay pornstar in your organization doesn’t mean you definitely have your first legit gay. From this Queerty article, it sounds like Dakota might be one of those ‘gay for pay’ folks:
Dakota Cochrane lost one match and won nine wins mostly by using a hold called “the Rear Naked Choke” (rad). He has also used a modified version of the rear choke as a versatile top in 17 Sean Cody scenes. … UNINSPIRING PORN QUOTES: Danny: “Yes [my girlfriend knows I'm doing gay porn], but she’s not happy about it.”
So while Cochrane may not be 100% pure raging homosexual, he’s still several dozen penises more gay than anyone else in the UFC right now. Let’s hope he makes it into the house and *gasp* wins TUF. Wouldn’t that just blow the minds of some meathead fans out there?
