UFC fighter Jeff Molina has opened up about his sexuality after a video of him performing a sexual act with another man was leaked on social media. The 25-year-old has shared an emotional statement on Twitter, revealing that he was denied the opportunity to come out as bisexual on his own terms.

Molina expressed his disappointment, stating, “Not the way I wanted to do this, but the chance to do it when I was ready was taken from me.” He went on to explain that he has always tried to keep his dating life private on social media, and he has dated girls throughout his life, even suppressing his feelings throughout high school while on the wrestling team and during college while pursuing MMA.

Molina expressed his fear of being treated differently by his friends, teammates, and those he looks up to, stating that the thought of it was unimaginable.

“Not the way I wanted to do this but the chance to do it when I was ready was taken from me. I’ve tried to keep my dating life private from social media. I’ve dated girls my whole life and suppressed feelings I had throughout high school being on the wrestling team, throughout college pursuing MMA, and even after making part of the dream happen and getting into the UFC.


The thought of my buddies, teammates and ppl I look up to looking at me different let alone treating me different for something I can’t control was something I couldn’t fathom.”

Despite his impressive record of 11-2 so far in his career and 3-0 in UFC, Jeff Molina has faced challenges not only in his personal life but also in his professional career. While he has shown support for the LGBTQ+ community in the past by wearing Pride Month shorts for his fight in June 2022, he revealed that he had no plans to come out during his career.

Molina explained that he wanted to be known for his skills rather than for his sexual orientation. He did not want to be labeled as the “‘bi UFC fighter’ that I’m sure would just be translated to ‘gay UFC fighter.'” This highlights the stereotypes and stigmas that LGBTQ+ individuals continue to face, even in sports.
