Jeff Molina, a 25-year-old UFC fighter, has come out as bisexual after a video of him engaging in a sex act with another man was leaked on social media. In an emotional statement, Molina expressed his disappointment that he was not able to come out on his own terms. He further stated that he had been suppressing his feelings for years while pursuing his MMA career and did not want to be seen differently by his peers. Molina also said that he did not plan to come out during his career and wanted to be known for his skills rather than being the “bi UFC fighter”. Despite the leak, Molina has shown support for the LGBTQ+ community, wearing Pride Month shorts for his fight in June 2022. With this announcement, Molina becomes the first openly LGBTQ+ male member of the UFC. He is currently suspended for his alleged role in a betting scheme.
