UFC fighter Jeff Molina has come out as bisexual, sharing his story on Twitter, after a video of him having oral sex with a man leaked online.

Molina has been an outspoken ally of the LGBTQ+ community. Last year, the fighter pushed back hard against critics of his decision to wear the UFC-produced Pride Month merchandise during Pride month. At the time, he shared that he was a straight ally, and was shocked at the critical response he received.

“I just thought in 2022 people would be a little more open-minded and not pieces of sh*t. But I guess I was wrong,” Molina said during a press conference at the time.

He also took to Twitter to thank those who supported him and called out those who didn’t.

“To all the dudes sliding in my DM’s I’m a straight guy but pshhh I’m flattered! For all the homophobic dudes upset by me repping pride month on my fight kit y’all some fruit cups,” he wrote.

While we loved him as an ally and are thrilled to have him as part of our community, sadly his decision to come out was not entirely his own. He chose to share his identity after a video of him engaged in sexual activity with a man leaked online.

Read his full coming-out statement, which Molina shared on Twitter, below:

Welp. this fucking sucks

TLDR: im bi

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.

I’m a pretty masculine dude and that bro-y banter and sus sense of humor has always been how I am. 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.

In a sport like this where a majority of the fans being the homophobic c**ks*ckers they are I didn’t see myself doing this during this part of my career. I wanted to be known for my skills and what I’ve dedicated the last 11 years of my life to not and not the “bi ufc fighter” that I’m sure would just be translated to “gay UFC fighter”

To the awful disturbed person that decided to post this ishh I hope it was worth it.

At the end of the day I know my character, morals, and who I am as a person. As much as I’m getting hated/sh*tted on I’m getting an equal amount of support & it means a f*ck ton.


While being outed is never the ideal or best way to experience the coming out process, we are so proud to have Molina as a member of our family and are rooting for him in and out of the ring.
