Marc Diakiese has become the first Ultimate Fighting Champion to pose naked for a gay magazine to show that there is no difference between a straight athlete and a gay one. He is straight and he does not think that gay men only can pose for gay magazines showing their body. Sexuality means nothing for being successful in sports and having an athletic body.Fighting in the lightweight category, Diakiese was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo but is based in Doncaster. ‘There’s a lot of people who are single-minded. We’re all the same, really, and as long as I get on with you and you get on with me, I’m fine. There’s no difference,’ the sportsman says adding that the new era of diversity and acceptance comes, people are free to be whoever they want and do whatever they want.
