For what? He's not gay (as he is sure to mention his girlfriend in the interview). Hmmmm, if sexual orientation is a protected class in the state in which he is an employee, he could not be fired for being gay. He could, however, likley be fired for participating in porn (gay or straight) or for any reason or no reason at all (assuming he is in an employment at will state.) I think. I'm not an employment lawyer.

Personally, I can't wait to see the drama (this is really out of character for me). It's one thing to mock a guy for perceived homosecuality (TOTALLY not cool). But for a guy who is straight to be kown to have participated in gay porn? Man, I'm thinking it's sort of PC-friendly(ish) opn season on this dude.

Someone would try to play the discrimination card without a doubt. If he'd get kicked out, it'd be because of his porn past.

This is bringing some bad publicity imo.

You mean like Bruce Lee, Superman, the soldiers that defeated Hitler etc.?

Fighting isn't inherently bad, not in certain contexts and especially not in a sport.

Taking it up the pooper for money though ...

Exactly, regardless of anyone's opinion, this is just asking for trouble.

If the guy is open about it to the point of always mentioning it on the show, viewers will complain. If one of the other contestants has an issue with this guy and lets it slip, you're looking at a discrimination problem.

Obviously the show is edited before broadcast, but this could be worse than expected. It only cements my view of TUF as a drama, not a competition, so I won't be watching anyway.

Don't get me wrong, I know what MMA is about, that argument was made purely for the sake of the discussion and I was just speculating how an average person would look at the whole "fighter = good role model for children" thing, because MMA is still perceived as human cock fighting (a lot less then in the past obviously.. in my country, the majority still thinks MMA is 'fighting with no rules'), in which case the role model thing goes completely out of the window and therefore some porn past shouldn't matter.
As Ryan said though children usually watch what is mainstream, and since UFC is becoming mainstream, like I said before, I agree that they shouldn't associate themselves with stuff like this.

That doesn't really matter though, during the corner scenes or pre/post fight stuff they could slip up and go "Man that ***got just tried to hold me against the cage and shit" or something along those lines.

I hate this because I guarantee they are going to make big drama out of this in the reality portion of the show.

I always hated TUF anyway...the fights are good but the whole Survivor with fighters bullshit is horrendous.
