“A lot of people thought I was gay,” Anderson Silva admits.

It has been observed numerous times over the years that the middleweight champion has an unusually high-pitched voice for such an alpha male and Silva says that when he was a teenager, more than one person thought he was gay.

That probably wasn’t helped by the fact that until around the age of 14 he thought it was “normal” to allow his sister to dress him up with girl’s clothes and play with dolls...

If Sonnen touched the subject of a fighter's sexuality, UFC management would probably have very stern words for him.

That would be bad ass if Anderson Silva were gay. I'm sure this would be a few people's reaction.

Dana White - "I'll tell you right now, if there's a gay fighter in the UFC, I wish he would come out," he said. "I could care less if there's a gay fighter in the UFC. There probably is, and there's probably more than one. It's 2012. Give me a break."

Heres a bit of cut and paste about why UFC does not want anti-gay sentiment-

The push for the legalization of MMA in New York has faced plenty of roadblocks, the most notable being the Culinary Workers Union Local 226. The union, who has ties to the Fertitta Brothers' Station Casino empire, continues to spend money campaigning against the UFC's efforts to land in New York.

Their latest creation, UnfitForChildren.org, outlines UFC President Dana White's anti-gay comments along with several other fighters under contract with the UFC. The goal of the website is to alert the public about how these comments are not only abusive to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, but also to children.

His wife and children obviously don't know.

Even if he was though, it shouldn't be stigmatized. If anything he would be an even more impressive fighter (if he came out.)
