UFC fighter Jeff Molina has recently come out as bisexual after a private video was leaked on social media.

In a lengthy statement shared on Twitter, Molina revealed that he did not want to come out due to homophobia within the UFC fan base and his desire to be known for his fighting skills rather than his sexuality.

Unfortunately, the leak has made Molina the first male UFC fighter to publicly identify as LGBTQ+.

Despite the difficult circumstances surrounding his coming out, Molina expressed gratitude for the support he has received and called out the person who leaked the video as an "awful disturbed person."

Molina currently holds a record of 11-2 with a 3-0 record in the UFC.

In his most recent fight, he wore shorts with the UFC's lettering colored with a rainbow, making headlines and receiving backlash from some fans.

Molina expressed disappointment with the backlash and stated that he supports any community that has been oppressed and ostracized.

Molina's career has been on pause since his last fight due to a suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

He was accused of being substantially involved in a gaming scheme with his coach James Krause, who allegedly worked as an agent for an online sportsbook.

Regardless of the pause in his career, Molina's coming out is a significant moment for LGBTQ+ representation in the world of mixed martial arts, and his bravery in the face of adversity is admirable.

It is hoped that Molina's coming out will inspire more athletes to be open about their sexuality and help to create a more inclusive environment within sports.
