TUF15 fighter Dakota Cochrane was a gay film actor

source: middleeasy.com

Emile Griffith and Benny 'Kid' Paret fought three times in the early 60s. The first time, Griffith took Paret's welterweight world champion boxing title. In the second fight, Paret took it back.

At the weigh ins for the second fight, the Cuban-born Paret slapped Griffith with a limp wrirst, and called him "Maricon" the Spanish street slang equivalent of "faggot." Griffith vowed that if Paret ever taunted him again in that manner, they would fight right there.

At the weigh ins for the third and final fight, Paret did it again. And that night, Griffith beat him to death in the ring.

We now live in better, less bigoted age, where it is taunting about sexual preference that is shameful, not the sexual preference itself.

"If there was a gay fighter in UFC, I wish he would come out," said UFC President Dana White last year. "I could care less if there's a gay fighter in the UFC. There probably is and there's probably more than one."

Now TUF-cast-member-is-also-a-gay-porn-star&catid=34:organizations">MiddleEasy is reporting that TUF15 fighter Dakota Cochrane, who crushed Jamie Varner last year at Titan Fighting Championships 20, is also a gay porn star.

The emergence of a prominent gay fighter is an opportunity for the world's fastest growing sport to show its ethical colors, and to judge Cochrane for the content of his character, and the quality of his fighting, and that is it.

A gay MMA fighter is not a stigma on the sport, the stigma is on people who think it is.

Alex Reid hardly classes as a cross dresser, he has done it for a laugh once or twice for fancy dress.

This opens a world of possibilities for his nickname. I vote for "power bottom."
