It will be harder for a guy to come out. They might even be afraid of losing fan support or sponsors. The UFC doesn't need to worry about gay fighters, they just care about their fighters getting ratings. It doesn't matter why a fighter is less popular, but a fighter's popularity has a lot to do with how much the UFC is willing to pay them, and whether or not they want to keep them on at all.
If a male fighter comes out, it might be very difficult and awkward for him, however I believe that people would be more likely to watch a gay fighter fight, at least shortly after they came out, because where there is controversy, people will surely come to watch.
Or am I underestimating how many closet homosexuals and bisexuals would be afraid of seeing an openly gay male fighter in the octagon? Maybe a lot of guys watch mma BECAUSE it gives them an excuse to watch half naked men roll around together...
