If Mike Rio is any indication of what Dakota Cochrane could face on "The Ultimate Fighter 15," he'll find some tough competition – but also some understanding.

Soon after FX officials announced Cochrane as one of 32 fighters chosen for the upcoming live season of the the UFC's competition-reality series, Dakota's past as a gay-porn actor made headlines.

But Rio today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com) that Cochrane is just one of 32 UFC hopefuls who's preparing for a new chapter in his life.

"He's just like everybody else," Rio told MMAjunkie.com Radio. "He's just trying to start a new chapter in his life, which is what we're all trying to do. We're trying to move on. He's entitled to do what he wants – according to me, he's entitled to do whatever he wants. Me and him hung out a little bit. He seemed cool to me. He didn't seem disrespectful. ... He was just a cool, down-to-earth guy.

i almost wonder if the ufc leaked that story to the press themselves because there is so much backlash from the gay community in the last year or so.

they have websites like this

http://www.unfitforchildren.org/

popping up and they have to fight a press war, so hiring a fighter who has done gay porn in the past gives them a chance to say "we don't hate gay people, we even have a fighter who has made gay porn".

Sherdog "broke" this story back in like September or October. It's not been a secret.
