UFC’s Jeff Molina comes out as bisexual after leaked video of oral sex with another man
UFC fighter Jeff Molina opened up about his sexuality after a video of him performing a sex act on another man was leaked to social media earlier this week.
THE The 25-year-old who shared an emotional statement after the leak said he was not given the chance to come out as bisexual as he wanted.
“It’s not like I wanted to do it, but the chance to do it when I was ready was taken away from me.
“I’ve tried to keep my love life private from social media. I’ve dated girls all my life and suppressed the feelings I had throughout high school by being on the wrestling team, all through college pursuing MMA, and even after being part of the dream to arrive and enter the UFC.
“The thought of my buddies, teammates and people I look up to looking at me differently let alone treating me differently for something I can’t control was something I couldn’t comprehend.”
He also said that he did not plan to come out during his career, adding that he wanted to be known for his skills rather than being the “bi UFC fighter”.
Molina, 11-2 so far in his career and 3-0 in the UFC, has already shown his support for the LGBTQ+ community, wearing the Pride Month shorts for his fight in June 2022. He is currently suspended for his alleged role in a betting program.
Molina’s announcement makes him the first openly LGBTQ+ male member of the UFC.
