The UFC and FX have revealed 32 lightweight fighters who have been selected to compete on “The Ultimate Fighter 15“. The show (also known as “TUF: Live”) will debut on March 9 on FX with a two-and-half-hour premiere that features 16 live elimination-round fights. All the winners earn official cast-member status and then the guys live in a house together, Big Brother-style, for the duration of the season. That certainly makes things interesting.

The interesting thing is that one of the fighters is a well known gay porn star from the popular website ‘Sean Cody’. I don’t know that many gay porn stars, but I definitely recognize this guy. Outsports.com said “We’ve long said that MMA is essentially gay porn for straight guys, so it’s not really news that one of them may have actually done GAY! PORN!” I have to agree. LOL.

In Outsports‘ article, they do make it clear that they don’t know for sure that he is gay, especially considering Sean Cody’s premise is that most of the guys are actually “gay for pay”. Who knows if he is or not, but hopefully if he is he can use this as a platform to come out and encourage other guys in fighting sports to come out. (UFC) President Dana White even said that he’d encourage anyone that was gay in the UFC to come out. Find out who the “Sean Cody” star participating in UFC 15 is below.

Known as “Danny” on SeanCody.com, Dakota Cochrane will be the one participating in UFC 15. As I mentioned, I have seen some of his Sean Cody videos and they are quite hot. He’s got a great body and is quite the dirty talker. To check out his hot pictures and videos on SeanCody.com, click here. Definitely NSFW.

Cochrane recently addressed the gay porn past in an interview. “I think it’s a little bit courageous for both of us. 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,” Cochrane told MMAFighting. “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.”

Yesterday, on the ‘The MMA Show with Mauro Ranallo’, he called his porn past a mistake. “Yeah, it’s true. It’s something I did a long time ago. Definitely made a mistake and want to put it in the past. Just trying to move on to bigger and better things now. I’ve dealt with this stuff ever since I did it. I did those movies for the money and people are going to opinionated, and there’s going to be haters, but those people that actually know me and care about me as a person know it was a mistake.”
