MMA fighters who have dated porn stars

This list is comprised of some successful MMA fighters who have dipped their toes into the waters of dating a porn star.

Every sport has a culture that surrounds it. In golf, it's khaki pants and sweater vests. In mixed martial arts, part of the culture is definitely tattoos and often hot women.

Top athletes in mixed martial arts are often in shape, tough as nails and ,they can be the kind of guy that attracts beautiful women. This list is comprised of some successful MMA fighters who have dipped their toes into the waters of dating a porn star:

Rob McCullough

'Razor' Rob McCullough was the former WEC lightweight champion who fought professional mixed martial arts from 2001-2011. McCullough also was one of the sport's best stand up artist with a professional kickboxing record of 11-1 dating back to 1998.

In 2009, McCullough married porn star Lexxi Tyler and the two have a son together.

War Machine

War Machine (formerly Jon Koppnehaver) has a storied history with adult film star Christy Mack. Koppenhaver was a member of the Ultimate Fighter season six and only fought once in the Octagon, a loss to Yoshiyuki Yoshida at UFC 84.

In the spring of 2013, Machine met porn star Christy Mack on a photoshoot and began dating. The two even lived together. Their story had an unfortunate ending with a history of domestic violence and the former UFC fighter in prison for many, many years.

Chuck Liddell

'The Iceman' was at one time the face of the UFC and one of it's biggest crossover stars. Liddell dominated the UFC light heavyweight division from 2006 winning fifteen of his seventeen fights in the Octagon.

Liddell is currently married to bombshell Heidi Northcutt and they have two sons together. But prior to settling down, Liddell was known as much for his partying as his fighting and was seen with too many beautiful women to count. At one point, Liddell was linked to porn star Jayden James.

Tito Ortiz

When it comes to porn star girlfriends, Tito Ortiz is far and away the leader of the pack. Not only did he wife a porn star, but he landed arguably the most famous female porn star of all-time in Jenna Jameson.

In a 2006 interview with Howard Stern, Ortiz officially announced that the two were an item in a monogamous relationship and that she was no longer acting in porn.

Why this porn star will never date an MMA fighter

Kristina Rose

Although several fighters have forged relationships with women in the porn industry, one porn performer, Kristina Rose, will never date a MMA fighter, and this is why.

“I refuse to date a man that chooses to spend a majority of his 'off time' surrounded by and touching other sweaty men at the gym," she told fightersonlymag.com. "It’s a extra No Go if u roll around on a mat barefoot with another man for fun. (Crossfit / Ju Jitsu / MMA) = SUS,” she writes (’sus’ is apparently short for ’suspicious’ or ’suspect’).

“Why is it that almost all male performers like to surround themselves with sweaty men at the gym on their off time. Like that’s all they do. Often opting to roll around barefoot with them on a mat covered in other men’s sweat. That’s sus.

“This is also the reason why I am not really a fan of MMA. Straight men should never be touching each other all over their bodies when they are barefoot. Not unless they’re f@$%ing.* Mainstream boxing is a corrupt sport now but at least they are really fighting.

“I feel like MMA is aggressive groping for men that keep their gay side repressed. You can’t get married everywhere but it’s cool to be gay now. You can come out of hiding.”

Why this porn star wants to date a MMA fighter

Kleio Valentine

People, movies, and TV shows that become popular are often parodied in adult films. MMA is not immune. Ronda Rousey is one of the biggest names ever in MMA, and also successfully transitioned into a Hollywood and WWE career.

In 2015, Kleio Valentine starred in the adult film 'Ronda Arouse-Me' which parodied the UFC star and her fights with Miesha Tate. She also spoke to Submission Radio about the film and her interest in dating Rousey herself:
