Ultimate Fighter’s gay porn career: “a big mistake,” Dakota Cochrane says

A cast member on FX’s upcoming season of the The Ultimate Fighter had a previous career as a hard-core gay porn star, which he has been honest about, including in his casting tape for the show, but now calls “a big mistake.”

Dakota Cochrane performed as “Danny” for Sean Cody; Dudetube has images of his work, including a five-way anal sex scene. Altogether, he appeared in 12 different scenes, most of which involved anal sex with a partner, but two of which were solo.

“It’s definitely a decision I regret. If I would have known what would happen I definitely wouldn’t have done it. But I had money issues and I needed help. I went there to do pictures, and they started throwing pretty high numbers in front of me. I didn’t really think. It was a big mistake,” he told MMA Fighting. He said that when he was filming scenes, “Every time I was down there, I hated it.”

Clearly, he’s a great actor.

Daktoa also said, “All I can ask, is that people respect that I’ve overcome something like that and tried to make a negative into a positive.” He now is married with two kids and the site reports that he “is not gay, [and] says he earned around $80,000 overall from taping the videos, which he made while a college student at the University of Nebraska-Kearney.”
