Jeff Molina comes out as bisexual after video leak: ‘The chance to do it when I was ready was taken from me’

Jeff Molina spoke out after a personal intimate video of him leaked online on Thursday. Molina came out on Friday as the first openly bisexual male fighter on the list.

Molina, 25, released a statement on Friday in response to the leaked video. Molina, who has strongly advocated for LGBTQIA+ in the past, was disappointed that he was denied the opportunity to tell his own story. Molina had no intention of revealing his sexuality at this point in his career due to expected backlash.

“Well… this sucks,” Molina wrote. “Not the way I wanted to do it, but the chance to do it when I was ready was taken away from me. I tried to keep my personal life private from social media. I dated girls all my life and repressed the feelings. In high school I was on the wrestling team, in college I did MMA and even after I made my dream come true and got into the UFC.

“I’m a pretty manly dude and this bro is joking and sus[pect] sense of humor has always been like me. [The] thinking about my buddies, teammates and people I look up to, they look at me differently, not to mention treat me differently because something I can’t control, was something I couldn’t understand. In a sport where most of the fans are homophobic cocksuckers, I didn’t see myself doing it at this point in my career. I wanted to be known for my skills and for dedicating the last 11 years of my life to not being a “UFC B Fighter” which I’m pretty sure simply translates to “UFC Gay Fighter”.

Molina concluded his statement by avoiding the person who leaked the video and thanking those who continue to support him.

“To the terribly anxious person who decided to post this, I hope it was worth it,” Molina wrote. “At the end of the day, I know my character, my morals and who I am as a person. [and] I don’t give a fuck, I get the same amount of support, which means a hell of a lot.”

Molina currently threatened with suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his alleged role in a betting scheme involving his coach, James Krause. The allegations stem from suspicious betting activity for a UFC fight between Darrick Minner and Shayilan Nuerdanbike in November.
